Learn the Ancient Art of Henna

The art of henna is one of the most ancient and purest forms of body decoration. It has been passed down for centuries in the eastern world and had long been a secret art form in which its recipes, techniques, and resources were kept within the family. In the 90's there was a huge rise in popularity of henna in the western world due to celebrities who adorned their hands and feet and showed off the art in photos and music videos. 

We offer fun, hands-on henna classes in which the secrets and proper techniques of this art form are revealed by a professional henna artist who has been doing this for over 30 years. Classes include all resources and related materials including a henna kit. These classes are very in-depth with limited seating to give each individual one-on-one attention. We are currently working on offering our classes online as well. Please check back soon.
