This introductory workshop will allow you to gain a basic understanding of natural perfumery. You will learn about essential oils, scents and perfumery, then work with a variety of materials to design your own custom solid perfume (and the recipe and knowledge) to make more.
All materials and equipment are provided and no previous experience is necessary. All you need is imagination.
