The Art of Henna @ Morrill Memorial Library, Simoni Room | Norwood | Massachusetts | United States

The Morrill Memorial Library in Norwood is pleased to bring New England artist, Noureen Sultana, to our community for a program about Henna on Wednesday July 11 at 4:00 pm. Henna, also known as Mendhi, is a traditional art form practiced in a number of countries, including India. Henna is a natural dye used to create intricate temporary tattoos on the skin, and is also used to dye hair, fabric, and other materials.

Noureen earned her degree in Civil Draftsmanship and Architecture from Indo British Academy in 1990. The winner of 7 Gold Medals from All India Industrial Exhibition in various categories, she learned various arts from family members including color painting, emboss painting, nib painting and glass painting, and all types of stitching and Henna (Mehndi). Born and raised in the Hyderabad (City of Pearls), home to India’s leading artists and poets, Noureen has earned fame in New England in the fine art of Mehndi.

“The Art of Henna” will start with a description and discussion of Henna, followed by a Q&A session. Noureen will then do Henna for those in the audience who’d like to experience this art form for themselves. Space is limited and registration is required; this program is open to everyone ages 10 and up. To register, please call 781-769-0200 x110, fill out the form below, or visit the Reference or Information desk.

“The Art of Henna” is brought to you with federal funds provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners. This program is part of Norwood’s Global Village, a grant being funded by the Library Services and Technology Act.
