EAC’s Summer Workshop Series continues from 1:30-3:30 pm, Tuesday, August 16, with Ashley Hinson-Dhakal’s Henna Basics. Participants will learn about the history and traditional use of henna, as well as different designs and their meanings. Attendees will be provided with a tube of natural henna paste that may be used on hands or feet to produce a vivid henna tattoo (typically lasting one to two weeks). Instruction will include application techniques, various motifs to try out, and ways to make the henna result in a deep, vibrant temporary tattoo. Certain people may have skin sensitivity and for that reason, directions will be provided for doing a “patch test” in advance of the session.

This workshop is intended for ages 12 and up. A $20 fee covers all materials; a sliding fee scale is available by request. Pre-registration is requested; please email Alison Brennan at alison@eastportartscenter.org. Space is very limited, so please register early to save a place. Support for this workshop has been provided by Belvedere Traditional Handcrafts Fund of the Maine Community Foundation.
