Ancient Beauty & Body Art (by Laura Millar)
(The photos are of my henna designs based upon tattoos from an ancient oriental Princess)
I have collected and collated many wonderful historical images, recipes/lotions/potions plus techniques/beauty/make up/body art skills.
I can display a lovely set of decorative pots/presentation vessels from the earliest times up to 1800AD.
These are ideal to use for workshops/presentations as they are interactive and demonstrate the art of beauty in a practical, tactile way.
Participants are encouraged to make up some of the recipes and try out the products.
