Make your own Frida Kahlo-inspired headdress at this colourful pop-up coming to Belgravia.
To celebrate the upcoming art exhibition at the V&A, Frida Kahlo: Making Her Self Up, Grosvenor is launching a Frida-inspired pop-up called Frida’s Parlour. The space has been designed to look like the iconic Casa Azul, which just so happens to be the artist’s childhood home, and is now a museum of her work in Mexico City.
The pop-up, open from May 19 to June 16, will play host to various workshops, including flower arranging, floral headdress making and floral cocktail-making. Everything has been inspired by Frida Kahlo and will be just as bright and colourful as you’d expect.
Following the theme, you’ll also find the Wallpaper Room – a room inspired by the floral backdrop in Nickolas Muray’s iconic photo, Frida Kahlo on The Bench. In a truly extra fashion, the floor, furniture, walls and ceiling will all be covered in wallpaper – meaning the room will be full to the brim with Insta-opportunities. (Isn’t that what it’s about these days?)
Whilst entry to Frida’s Parlour is free, along with access to the Wallpaper Room and the general space, the workshops start from around £20. You can book tickets on the Belgravia website.
Find it at 141 Ebury Street. Nearest station: Victoria.
