The community can become part of a large-scale hair weaving project by one of WA’s premier contemporary artists, Olga Cironis.

Cironis will run hair weaving performances at Keith Holmes Reserve from noon until 3pm each day of the festival weekend and hair donations can be made at the City of Mandurah before May 4.

Seal a lock of hair, minimum 3cm long, in a paper bag labelled with the donor’s name before delivering.

The free workshops include jewellery making, comedy, mural creation and lantern making.

The Stretch Festival is on May 7-8.
