Learn the fundamentals of henna body art in this hands-on, beginner friendly workshop with Jawaher Designs! In this class you will first learn how to mix fresh henna to achieve the perfect natural orange to red brownish color. You will then learn the right way of holding the henna cones to achieve fine detail work as you pipe your designs. Once your materials are prepped, Jawaher will then teach you how to make simple, eye catching flower designs as you create beautiful artwork on your non-dominant hand/arm that will last a few days. Beginners welcome and all supplies provided.
We’re thrilled to present an introduction to this incredibly customizable art form as part of our New Americans Workshop Series in partnership with the International Rescue Committee, with funding from the Salt Lake Arts Council.
About the Instructor: My name is Jawaher, which means jewelry in Arabic, and I am a henna and jewelry artist located in Salt Lake County, Utah since 2012. I was born in Sudan and raised in Libya. As a child, my mother noticed my love for handcrafts and designs and allowed me to practice with her. Growing up in African and Middle Eastern cultures, I began to channel my creativity into henna, a 100% natural dye that is derived from plants before it is dried and sifted into a fine powder. I have been doing henna for 25 years.
