Art Therapy is a form of expressive therapy that uses the creative process of making art to improve physical, mental, and emotional well-being. In this live online workshop, we will be exploring the processes of natural dying with Hapa Zome and Henna.

Hapa Zome is a Japanese word which means ‘leaf dye’. It a process of transferring the natural pigments from leaves and flowers onto fabric or paper to create a botanical image. The activity is incredibly relaxing and very simple. Henna is a temporary body art resulting from the staining of the skin from natural dyes (henna leaves).

In this live online workshop, we have the option of trying the henna process out on fabric, paper or on skin. The essence of this workshop revolves around the concept of self-care, using these natural dying techniques to explore kindness to oneself.
