Mehndi Master Class at the Indian Cultural Centre.
On the 6th of March, the Indian Cultural Centre Armenia, in collaboration with Deepali Arts organized a master class for all those who wanted to get acquainted with the unique world of mehndi and gain skills in henna art. The class was conducted by the best Mehndi artist in Armenia, Mrs Dipali Shah.
Within the framework of the master class, the attendees were able to gain basic knowledge in the origin of Mehndi and the traditions associated with the art of applying mehndi in India.Those who attended the master class were also taught the art of making mehndi cone, mixing mehndi powder and filling the ready paste in the cone. Mrs Dipali Shah also showed basic mehndi designs for the attendees to practice. A print-out of a hand sketch was also given to them to practice on.
At the end of the masterclass, each attendee got a unique mehndi tatoo design on their hand drawn by the instructor. They also got to try special Indian tea and complimentary Indian sweet, prepared by Mrs Shah.
The master class was the first of a series of master classes that will be organised at our centre. There will also be regular intesive mehndi courses for people who wish to learn from basics to master the art of applying mehndi on hands.
We wish to thank all those that attended the first master class and hope to see them at our regualr courses as well.
Special thanks to Dipali Shah and Pragnesh Shah for their collaboration and continued support, without which the master class would not have been possible.
We hope to see you too next time.
