The Ancient Art of Henna Comes Alive!

What is Henna Body Art

Laurie Faulkner is looking forward to sharing its application with you, incorporating beautiful designs influenced by the traditional and the modern contemporary.

This 1 day workshop with Laurie will de mystify the "Art of Henna" after a little information and some simple exercises on paper, you'll be applying Henna.  At the end of the Workshop you will have some beautiful Henna Art and an information booklet with designs to keep and inspire you.

Henna is a plant from which a paste is made.  To create Henna Body Art, we pipe the paste onto the skin.  This paste dyes only the outer layer of skin a reddish brown.  The design will last between 1-4 weeks, depending on how long it takes the individual to exfoliate.  No pain, no piercing.

If you can draw a dot a curve and a straight line
Laurie can guide you through the rest
Decorate your body with intricate lacelike designs
or empower yourself with bold tribal designs
It's safe, painless, temporary and lots of fun!!!
