What You’ll Do

More than 5,000 years ago, henna body art was a popular means to stay cool in hot climates due to the henna plant’s natural cooling properties. Since then, henna has transformed from a practical tool to an expressive art form. During a two-hour workshop, henna artist Akiyo Ogura shows you how to make your own henna paste and apply it to skin. After creating a test pattern on paper, participants then transfer their designs onto their own bodies.

  • See Traditional and Modern-Day Henna
    The workshop begins with Akiyo showing photographs of traditional henna usage and modern-day designs.

  • Draw Your Own Henna Designs
    Learn to use a henna applicator to create your own body art. Guests are advised against wearing white clothing, since the ink may stain.

  • Henna Design from the Instructor
    Instructor Akiyo Ogura draws a small henna design to complement each guest’s artwork.
