Learn the Art of Henna

Saturday 17 February, 10.30am

Join this class to try your hand at the intricate art of henna design, a well-known art form brought to you with a modern twist. You will learn from Nora Aalit, the founder of Hackney Henna House, about how to make henna paste and create delicate and beautiful patterns on a range of surfaces, including paper, candles and your own skin. No experience necessary and all levels welcome, you will learn skills to take away with you and start decorating your own items at home.

Nora Aalit grew up in Hackney and founded Hackney Henna House as a fusion of her North African heritage and east London background, to create contemporary henna designs. Specialising in Design Technology at university, she is able to create unique henna body art designs and makes her own henna cones, replacing the ink with acrylic and icing to make home décor, edible biscuits and macarons.
