Henna is an ancient form of temporary, plant-based body art used by cultures across India, northern Africa and the Middle East for thousands of years. Join Internationally Certified Natural Henna Artist Elyse Sadtler for an informational workshop to learn all about this ancient tradition. In this workshop you will explore what henna is, where it comes from, its history, cultural significance, the science of henna on skin and basic design elements. You’ll also play a Bingo trivia game and watch a henna paste mixing demonstration. Elyse will do a henna design on participants for $10 per hand after the program. She will also share resources where you can purchase henna supplies to begin your own henna journey.
