Teens: Henna Tattoos at the Altadena Library’s DIY Club


On May 15th at 4 p.m. teens and tweens, ages 11-17, can get gorgeous, personalized henna tattoos from guest artist Lernie Bueler. These designs are applied with a special henna paste, which is not permanent, but can stay on the skin for 1-3 weeks.

While waiting for your design, browse through our literature on the art of mehndi, practice sketching your own designs, and learn to make henna paste for home use! Lernie Bueler has been practicing the art of mehndi for over 10 years, sharing her talent and passion for this traditional art form with others at special private events as well as at colleges and libraries.

Teen DIY Club is a monthly pop-up makerspace for teens and tweens. What’s a makerspace? It is a place where we provide tools for creating all sorts of arts and crafts projects. We invite you to make what you love, share what you know, and learn something new. Each month, a new project is introduced! This program is generously sponsored by the Friends of the Library.

The Altadena Main Library is located at 600 E. Mariposa St., Altadena, (626) 798-0833. Online at
