KENT—Kent residents are invited to “Explore Henna” with Elyse Sadtler Thursday, Nov. 2 at 6 p.m. at the Kent Memorial Library.
Henna is an ancient form of temporary, plant-based body art used by cultures across India, northern Africa and the Middle East for thousands of years.
Sadtler, an internationally certified natural henna artist, will present an informational workshop about this ancient tradition. In this workshop, guests will explore what henna is, where it comes from, its history, cultural significance, the science of henna on skin and basic design elements. They will also play a Bingo trivia game and watch a henna paste mixing demonstration.
Sadtler will do a henna design on participants for $10 per hand after the program. She will also share resources where those interested can purchase henna supplies to begin their own henna journey.
