"The Language of Henna"
Date: Monday, Nov. 15th, 2021
Class Description: Like any language you set out to master - the letters come first, then the words, then the paragraphs...until you can tell a complete story!
Do you ever have a great idea and get stuck trying to figure out where to go next? Henna has a code, or “pattern”, that once understood makes larger designs so much easier to achieve. Stop henna-ing yourself into a corner and panicking over going BIG! Margie will guide you through a series of hands-on exercises, teach you how to read henna designs, and give you the keys to create a story of your own every single time. You will work with your strengths to create your own unique design boards and get tips on how to practice effectively. Margie will also explain pricing strategies, and how expanding your designs effectively will make you more money!
Margie will discuss the different henna mixes, when to use them, and how to formulate your own go-to recipe. Mixing your own paste and rolling your cones will cut your costs and raise your profits. Next, learn pre and aftercare for the best stain results. Finally, Margie will demonstrate henna hacks and quick designs so you can add henna to your entertainment business sooner than you thought possible.
Building your henna business throughout the year and beyond the “season”. Explore other materials you can use in addition to, or in place of, henna to create henna-ish designs for body art and craft classes. Don’t get stuck in thinking small when it comes to henna, Margie will discuss developing new business and gaining transferable skills that will keep you working all year long.
