Henna Workshop

The art of Henna has been practiced throughout Africa, Asia and the Middle East for over 5000 years. Learn how to make the Henna paste and apply it to the skin with instruction from women who practice this art as part of their cultural heritage. Participants will learn about life in the rural Atlas Mountain regions of Morocco, the Amazigh culture, and community development in the remote region of Zawiya Ahansal. The workshop consists of a series of short pre-recorded educational videos, followed by an hour of live instruction in the art of Henna direct from Morocco.
