Secrets of Mehndi - in Mexico

Learn the Basics of Henna Designing, in Paradise!

Registration Deadline: February 9th

Many of you have been asking when I'm going to teach another workshop in Mexico. Wish granted! 

Instructor: Darcy Vasudev

Level: Beginner/Intermediate - Suitable for those who have already begun practicing with henna or want a refresher on the basics, and tips from a professional on composition and design. Total beginners are also welcome.

Syllabus:

  • First, we will review the basics of henna-paste mixology (the most important part of doing henna is to work with a fresh, safe paste) with a mixing demonstration. 
  • Next we will construct our own applicators, which are gentle on the hands and can be made with recycled materials.
  • Then we will learn the basic components of henna patterning, and work on controlling the flow of the henna paste.
  • We will learn to construct motifs such as mandalas, flowers, paisleys, and geometric shapes, as well as accent motifs such as leaves, dots, and teardrops (using that cone control!).
  • Finally, time permitting, there will be a design challenge, to create you own style of pattern utilizing 3-5 of motifs we learned.

You should bring paper or a notebook to class to take notes on and to practice drawing on. All henna supplies will be provided for the mixing demonstration as well as fresh henna cones for you to practice with in class.

Class fee: $100 USD ($50 deposit is required to reserve your spot, and the balance of $50 is payable on the day of the workshop). Class size is extremely limited. 

If you would like to purchase additional supplies, please let me know by February 5th. Henna kit with 100grams henna powder, 30ml Australian Cajeput, and 10 sheets of Mylar is $35. If you prefer to purchase my henna paste, the cost is $7/cone (requires access to a freezer).

Hey Burner Babes and Boys! We are hosting a body-beautifying party with special rates on henna and eye-lash extensions. $100/hour of henna, $100 for full set of lash extensions. Choose one, or both! Appointments are highly recommended, and lash color preference is helpful.

There will be light snacks and bubbles! 

1. Henna  - Darcy and Sabreena will be in da house creating epic designs for your body. Bring an inspiration or let us freestyle. One hour is enough for 2 medium designs, or 1 large design. If you want to cover a larger body area, 1.5-2 hours is recommended. 

2. Lashes - Special guest Andrea, a licensed aesthetician, will be offering eyelash extensions in your choice of lengths and colors, yes COLORS. With proper care, they can last 4-8 weeks. So you can say goodbye to fumbling with false lashes in a dust-storm, forget about mascara, and wake up looking naturally glamorous.  Each lash is applied individually to your own lashes, so please allow 1-1.5 hours in your schedule for this service.
