come join me for a workshop this fall. my name is Kyla and I have been a henna artist for 8 years. I work with the internationally recognized group Henna Heals and my henna work has been on display both in a brick and mortar gallery downtown Toronto as well as all over the internet.
I am also a doula at Sisterhood Wellness Collective, and I have brought my two loves together to offer high quality henna services for my clients - both prenatally and postpartum.
Here's what this workshop will include:
- a history of henna as it related to women - ancient menstruation, pregnancy, and postpartum traditions.
- regional and cultural styles.
- henna safety - especially important when working with pregnant or nursing mothers. not all henna products are safe
- how to mix your own henna. you can keep all the henna that you made that day.
- how to practice designs, how to break down big designs into small elements
- how to do a belly henna. tips on how to (and how not to) add henna to your business.
***you do not have to be a doula to attend. Share this with your artistic buddies as well. the workshop will be geared towards doulas, but if you don't mind that aspect then it will still be a great workshop for non-doulas.***
10:00 am - approx 3:30pm. We will have a break for lunch in between.
cost: $85. this includes supplies.
you should bring:
- lunch and a couple snacks. (there is a fridge and a kitchen).
- a notebook and something to write with if you like to take notes as well as scrap paper to practice on.
- a ziploc bag or a container to bring your henna home in
- henna can be messy. you may want to bring an apron if you do not want to risk getting henna on your clothes. henna stains most fabric permanently. this is not the day to be wearing your white cashmere sweater.
