Overview

Mehendi is a refined arabesque, drawn on the hands and feet with a paste made of henna leaves, crushed into powder. During the class, you will be taught how to make the paste, which is poured in a paper cone with cut tip. This allows you to draw extremely fine lines and sophisticated designs. Unlike tattoos, Mehendi is an ephemeral art that gradually disappears after a few days, at most two or three weeks.

The class is held at Sita Cultural Center in Pondicherry, starting at 10:00am for morning session or 3:00pm for afternoon session. The 1.5-hour Mehendi art class gives you all the tips to create arabesque design. First, you will be taught how to make a henna paste, which is then placed in a homemade paper cone whose tip has been cut. Only natural henna powders are used during the class in order to avoid allergies.

During this session the teacher will tell you about the purpose of Mehendi in Indian ceremonies, show different designs which are used all over the world, patterns and the way of drawing. You will first try your hand on a paper draft before drawing on your own hand or the one of your friend. You leave Sita with a nice henna design on your hand that you should leave for at least an hour before scrapping dry henna paste off. This class is ideal for both kids and adults.
