Mehndi: Henna Body Art

LaGrange County Public Library
Saturday
, August 18
2:00 p.m. 

Please call 260-463-2841 x1030 to register. This program is currently full, but we are taking names for the waiting list.

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's not dangerous, they're just too wiggly.)

 

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

 

Learn about the history, culture, and science of henna. Then choose a gorgeous design from one of Jen’s books.  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.  

 

The program is free, but space is limited, so registration is required! Call 260-463-2841 x1030 to register.
