The Beautiful Art of Henna

Lorry Pearson

1:00 pm – 4:00 pm;  Art Gallery East
Pre-register on or before July 20th $30;  After July 20th $40


Henna art is an ancient tradition that has been practiced for over 5000 years in Pakistan, India, Africa and the Middle East.  It is known that Cleopatra used it on her hair, skin and to dye the sails of her ships.  Now, it is a modern-day art form for self-expression.
In this workshop you will learn:
>  What it is and where it grows
>  History of Henna and traditions in India
>  How it works on the skin
>  How to make and transfer images to the skin and use Henna paste to create your art (You don’t have to be an artist! There will be many designs provided that you may use.
>  Dangers of black henna
Each participant will receive a cone of henna paste and many choices of designs so that you can create your own beautiful art work and leave the workshop with your own beautiful creation on your body.  There will also be cones of henna that you may take home with you so that you can experiment more with this beautiful art form.


Lorry Pearson has been teaching and producing Henna body art for 30 years.  She originally opened a Tattoo shop but discovered that many people wanted body art that was not permanent.  This led her to study Henna and her 30-year practice of creating beautiful body art for others.  It is fun and you can change your mind and your body art every few weeks if desired.  Lorry loves to teach about Henna simply because most people don’t know the storied history it has.  She particularly enjoys the satisfaction she gains from people who discover their creative potential with little effort.
