Henna Workshop: An appreciation of a global folk art

Henna is a global art form with traditions from Morocco to Indonesia. Anywhere the henna plant grows, you will find celebrations that include henna every place people gather.

Come explore the tools and techniques practiced around the world with me at Boston Tea Room.

From the time of the Ancient Greek philosophers, henna has been traded from Africa to Asia as a perfume, herbal medicine and body art - we will share a brief historical perspective as well as share current style differences in practice today.

Fragrance Workshop: Scent and Wellness
2:00 PM14:00

Fragrance Workshop: Scent and Wellness

Applying principles of perfumery to affect sense of space and wellness in design. This is an interactive, intuitive approach to scent construction that allows the guests to imagine a feeling to invoke through scent, and then create that mood.

When we talk about fragrance we borrow the lyrical language of music... notes... accords. Fragrance, like music has the power to transport us to places real and imagined.

Come ready to play with scent.

Alchemy will provide all materials for blending a harmonious (synthetic-free) perfume. There will be a variety of scents, accords, bases and plant essences for constructing a perfume. 

Students will create their own 10ml atomizer mist to take home.

$40 Registration

This class is open to ages 14+
Tools and fabric will be provided
