Mehndi:  Henna Body Art

LaGrange County Public Library

Saturday, August 12

2:00 p.m.

Registration is required.


One of our favorite presenters, Jen Shafer, returns with her beautiful artwork! 


Learn about the history, culture, and science of henna, as well as how to mix and apply henna yourself.  Then look through Jen’s design books and choose a gorgeous design.  Jen will apply it in minutes, and it will last for weeks (with proper skin care).


This beautiful and relaxing experience makes a great mom’s day out or a special mother-daughter treat.

Participants younger than 18 must either attend with a parent or have their parent sign a waiver before the event.

Children under 5 shouldn’t use henna.  (It isn’t dangerous; they’re just too wiggly.)

The program is free, but space is limited, so registration is required!

Call 260-463-2841 x1030 to register.
