Henna is a natural, non-toxic, plant-based dye that can elicit a powerful sense of reclaiming one’s body while going through illness. Henna’s natural healing herb can help nourish the skin and emotionally restore self-esteem and spirit, while offering a beautiful and temporary work of art.
In this workshop, participants can choose to get a crown or have their hands decorated with henna. Designs usually last on the skin for 1-4 weeks. Participants can choose their own designs or let Mary create an intricate and beautiful design for them.
This workshop is open to youth ages 6-18 who have been impacted by cancer and their parents/family members.
