Victorian Hair Art at the Morbid Anatomy Museum


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just took a class on the Proper Victorian Lady Skill of hair artistry for jewelry as well as around the house. Don't be fooled by those little tokens, they took a long enough time to make and only so much can be done during a 4 hour, afternoon class!

The museum itself is a delightful little treasure in Gowanus, Brooklyn and the gift shop is a must-visit for those who like books on arcana without having to wait for Amazon or Ebay to deliver. I must confess that I purchased so many things that they gave me a free tote bag. I love a small museum that is made more for enthusiastic than institutional purposes and this one is at the top of the list. (Perhaps, if I fall on hard times, I will write up some placards and start charging admission to my house.)
