This class holds 10 students who are interested in learning how to do mehndi at a beginner/intermediate level by using a home kit. This class is designed as a “crash course” where students will learn how to do the basic application process, how to fill a cone, use a transfer, create lines and filled designs, and aftercare.
We are also available to book private workshops for you and 6 or more people. A travel fee of $40 may apply depending on your location
Professional Artist Class: This class is a 2 day event that holds up to 4 students but is often taught one-on-one. It includes the professional artist kit. This class is $480 per person and is perfect for students who are interested in learning how to do mehndi at an intermediate to advanced level. The class is designed for people interested in charging for their work and becoming a paid professional artist.
