This workshop starts with a lecture where Thaís Muniz explores the complex history of the turbans and head wraps in the Afro-Atlantic diaspora from ancient to contemporary times.
Incorporating the historical and multicultural context, the workshop begins by emphasizing the chronology of turbans and their principal significations in different cultures around the world, with a principal focus on Afro-Brazilian culture. With scarves in hand, investing in the practical method of DIY, various methods of wrapping and binding are taught in a fluid and friendly class, which reveres beauty and diversity, carrying with it above all, the vision that positions the turban as an icon of black culture and as a crown of African queens and their diaspora. The duration of the workshop with the lecture can be from 1:30 to 3 hours. It depends of the format.
