Henna Hands Painting Workshop

  • In this workshop Erica will introduce you to the ancient art of henna body adornment. We will begin with a brief overview of what henna is, how paste is made, and its cultural significance. Erica will teach you basic shapes & how to put them together to create your own design. You’ll practice first on paper and then you’ll have the opportunity to practice on yourself or each other if you bring a friend! Erica only uses all natural ingredients in her paste (pure henna powder, lemon juice, and cajeput oil) which will leave you in a relaxed and meditative state by the end of the workshop. Once applied to the skin, the henna paste needs at least 30 minutes to dry and should not be soaked in water for the first 24 hours to ensure the best stain, so please plan accordingly. All materials will be provided by the instructor.
