Henna paste is made by crushing leaves of henna plant. Henna is a traditional Indian art form. Women usually adorn their hands and feet on occasions such as marriages and festivals. It is also used as a natural hair dye and conditioner. It is growingly becoming popular all over the globe. This term at Tamaki Primary we are learning all about different forms of art. Students used henna to adorn their palms with patterns that signified their own culture.
