[back to quicklinks]
$ 85  

The imagery used in this Hand Book developed out of my love for doodling combined and the art of Mehndi, the ancient art of temporary lacework tattoos done with herbal henna. This application of henna as a temporary form of skin decoration is used in India, Pakistan, Nepal and Bangladesh as a ceremonial art form which originated in ancient India. This 5” X 8” Hand Book is a unique vessel to capture daily inspirations, instructions, thoughts or can just be used as a basic journal. This workshop will focus on binding this book and getting it ready for your journaling needs. You are provided with 5 pages of collage imagery that you can begin working with in class and easily finish up later at home. Most materials are included in the provided kit. The student list is short and simple. You should already have most things at home. Photos of completed book can be seen at WWW.IngridDijkers.com. This class is well suited for all levels.
