The Art of Henna Comes to Union City Library

Last Saturday Union City Library members, friends, and staff were treated to a fun and informative workshop on the art of henna. Local multicultural artist Rachel-Anne Palacios who makes her own organic henna told us all about this ancient art form and demonstrated the art on our hands. She is amazingly fast and the results were beautiful. We all got to practice on paper and anyone brave enough got to practice on themselves or their neighbor. We also found out where in the world this art form is practiced, how to make the henna paste, and how to apply it. Thanks Rachel for sharing your art with us!
