Henna artist, Sure Murad, visits Malden Public Library

This week, the Malden Public Library invited henna and tattoo artist Sue Murad for a demonstration at the Program Room. Murad drew patterns with the dark henna mixture on the kids’ wrists, palms or shoulders. A solution of sugar and lemon juice was applied to the designs after the henna dried. Murad, a Jamaica Plain resident is a graduate of Mass. Art. She first became fascinated with henna when she and a friend went to Morroco on a trip. (Advocate photo / Juhi Varma)
