About The Headdress Workshop
The Headdress Workshop is the only place in the Bay Area offering flower crown and fantasy headdress classes & parties.
We are not a florist but a design studio and we offer faux flowers verus fresh because of their durability.
The Headdress Workshop class is our version of the popular "paint and sip” classes. But instead of making art for your wall, you make art to wear on your head.
The Headdress Workshop is a division of Manneqin Madness, a largest mannequin recycling company in the US.
Mannequin Madness has been in business since 2001 and is committed to sustainabiity, creativity and inclusivity.
A headdress is a gender gender neutral fashion accessory. All ages, body shapes, hair textures/hair styles look good in headdress.
And although this is a group activity, it is highly individualized as each person gets to choose their materials and style of headdress that speaks to their personality.
There is no "right" or "wrong" way to make a headdress, so there is no competition and people have the freedom to explore.
The only crafting experience needed is the ability to use a glue gun which makes this activity accessible to almost everyone.
