Event Details

Henna artist Darcy Vasudev will demonstrate henna painting and participants will have the opportunity to make their own designs. Darcy Vasudev is a professional henna artist who has been creating henna designs for fifteen years, developing her own techniques and recipes based on her studies in India.

We add color to our season of exploring Sephardic culture with a henna workshop. Many Sephardic Jews, particularly those from North Africa, included henna painting as part of the bride’s pre-wedding festivities to symbolize fertility and to protect against the evil eye. Henna was also used as part of the Purim holiday. Jewish traditions of henna reflect local styles and include intricate geometric motifs along with highly stylized designs representing eyes, hamsas, trees, water and stars.
