Area women are invited to learn to wrap traditional Indian saris at Missouri University of Science and Technology on Tuesday, Feb. 28. The Sari Wrap Party will be held from 5:30-7 p.m. in the Southwestern Bell Cultural Center, 1207 N. Elm. St. The event will include henna tattoos for a nominal fee, refreshments and a limited number of saris available for purchase.

The sari or saree is a piece of cloth ranging from 4-to-9 yards in length. Learning to drape a sari correctly is an art form that can be easily learned. The draping of a sari often varies from region-to-region in India. Those who wish to practice draping a sari are advised to wear a base layer of leggings and a knit T-shirt.

The event is sponsored by the International Student Club in support of its annual International Student Day, which will be held at Missouri S&T on March 4. Tickets are limited; email intsclub@mst.edu or visit intsclub.mst.edu for more information.

For more information about the Sari Wrap Party, contact Harshita Gidugu at 614-767-9463 or hgkv9@mail.mst.edu, Aditi Mishra at 651-485-9636, or Roberta Morgan at 573-341-6640 or birdie@mst.edu.
