Experience the Art of Henna

Henna, a reddish-brown coloring made from a flowering plant, has been used throughout history to dye skin, hair, fingernails, leather, silk, and wool.

 

People in Egypt and India continue to use this form of temporary tattoo for religious ceremonies, wedding festivals, and simple body adornment.

 

You will learn about the history, cultural traditions, and science of henna. Our henna artist/instructor will guide you in selecting and drawing traditional henna designs and patterns, teach effective henna application techniques, and explain proper aftercare. Depart with a beautiful design on your body and ideas for using henna on natural fabrics to decorate clothing, accessories, and unique pieces for your home. Please browse through our gallery to see examples of our Henna Artist’s work.
