1:00-2:00 Catherine Lent: Lettering for Henna Artists
Many henna artists who are happy doing a full bridal design or an epic full-leg floral design fall all to pieces when asked for TEXT. Catherine's Lettering for Henna Artists reveals the secret to beautiful lettering every time. The keys to gorgeous calligraphy are likely skills you already have and are already applying to other designs, and with a few important tips can be learned and applied so that you're not only not afraid to do words anymore, you're actually seeking clients who want a henna mantra.

4:00-4:50 Nev Levin Uncover Your Style
In this world of pattern saturation, cultural tradition and global accessibility it can be hard to find your own unique voice as a henna artist. In this class we will dive into the pool of pattern language to find a core sense of what is your voice.
One of the most important moments of creation comes when we allow our “supposed-to’s” to fade and open ourselves up to possibility without limit. Drawing from your culture, your passion and your own storyline you will, through a series of exercises, be given tools to uncover your core style. Come prepared to play!
