Henna & a new Make & Take Pendant at Funky Hannah’s….First Friday is THE event in downtown Racine! 

We are full of creative fun, especially during First Fridays.  Stop in and adorn yourself with henna from the magically talented Luna.  Our workshop area will be rocking with a fun all ages Make & Take — handpaint hardwood mandala pendants, letter pendants & more with materials from a trunk show from Tangible Light Studio.  The trunk show kicks off during First Fridays and will run for one week.  Don’t miss it!
