Mehndi Body Art with Margie at the Somers Library. Thursday, May 30, from 4:30 - 6:00 pm. Did you know that henna body art (mehndi) has been practiced by many ancient cultures throughout millennia? Or that Mehndi is a tradition that is transmitted between women to ensure love, good fortune and protection?  Come to this hands on workshop, where you will create your very own henna designs and everyone who wants one will go home with a special henna design by Margie! The henna we will be using is all natural, made from finely sifted henna, lemon juice and essential oils. With proper care a henna stain can last between 2-3 weeks.. This program is intended for teens/tweens grades 6 and up. Space is limited, please register on our online events calendar at or call the library at 232-5717. IMPORTANT: All Participants must have a signed permission slip from their parent or guardian.

Margie Nugent is an accomplished body artist and owner of Making Faces Parties who has dedicated her life to sharing the art of Mehndi with the world-from large body art conventions, to corporate and private clients. She is currently based in Mt. Kisco, New York
