Event description
Masterclass in the science of hair and braiding technique by Sophia Reeves.

About this Event

Ages 13-17

On the 28th October, Central Library’s Performance Space will be transformed into a salon of sorts; we will be hosting ‘A Story of your Crown’, a hair braiding workshop run by Sophia Reeves. This masterclass in the science and skill of braiding hair aims to inspire, empower and educate on Black hair, which has been, and continues to be, heavily politicised.

Also on show at the event will be one of the Ahmed Iqbal Ullah Education Trust’s book projects, Her Hair A Crown, which was completed in 2018. Year 10 students from Cedar Mount Academy worked together to create this children’s book to inspire young black girls to embrace and love their natural hair.
