Henna Day at SUTRA !


We welcome world traveler and amazing creative diva Anna Ostendorf back for Henna Day at SUTRA!

Saturday October 7 10am-4pm

Most designs cost from $10-$15 (min $5 - average maximum $25)
payable directly to the artisan

Adults and children alike can receive the beautiful, temporary skin art which originated in India and other parts of the Middle East and Africa.. Traditionally used to wedding adornments, the lovely adornments now are gaining great popularity here in the Midwest. A "cone with a small tip" of henna is used to apply the patterns, which "bloom" after a day. Most people opt for a design applied to their ankle, hand, forearm or shoulder. 

You can select from several designs such a floral or swirls, mandala patterns (circular) or leafy-vine patterns. Anna will have pages of patterns from which you can select and the designs last 1-2 weeks with proper care.
