"We had Quin come in to present to a group of teen girls. She gave a very informative introduction to the history of henna and then gave all the girls their own henna design. The meeting far exceeded our expectations and we will definitely recommend her!!!" ~ Lee-Ann
What to Expect
In Depth Learning Experiences
This lesson focuses on making natural henna paste and learning how to get started with simple henna patterns and designs. After an explanation about the history, practice, and safety of henna, an in depth, hands-on mixology class will be next, followed by rolling and filling henna cones. You will then start learning how to use a henna cone to create simple lines and shapes.
All materials are included and you will be left with a 100g box worth of henna paste and all the supplies you need, including a laminated sheet for easy practicing.
2.5 hours in length.
This lesson will focus on creating more detailed and intricate designs and patterns. You will be shown how to hone your design skills as well as how to structure basic Sangeet strip style henna designs as well as other simple styles.
Practicing on your own after the Beginner class is recommended before booking the Intermediate class.
Semi-Private: You can opt to have a friend, or friends, join you for a semi private lesson or a group lesson in your home or at another location (you would be responsible for the rental). We will focus on the same skills as in a private session. All materials are included and each participant will take away a 100g box worth of henna paste and all the supplies needed. It's more fun with friends!
