Do you want to make henna paste and have a little fun? Join Mandy Roberge for a two part series workshop intended for teens in grades 6 to 12, and open to adults.

On Day One  (5/12): We will meet on Zoom to learn the history and culture of mehndi and talk about chemical henna -- what it looks like, how to detect it and avoid it, and why natural henna is so important. Using our kit, we will make our own henna paste.

On Day Two (5/13): We will check for dye release and learn how to cone the henna up, and learn about storing/using henna. Everyone gets a little workbook and will learn 5 basic elements of creating simple henna designs.
