Event description

Description

Curious about working with scent in the context of your creative practice? Always wanted to learn how to make perfume, but didn't know where to start? IAO founder Saskia Wilson-Brown has got you AMPLY covered.

Join us for a 3 hour exploration of the basics of scent in this session designed for beginners to learn about working with scent as part of their creative practice.

Learn about the history, the industry, and contemporary experimental practices with scent. Get the basics on lab safety, and spend some time smelling (and discussing) a curated selection of molecules under the Saskia's watchful eyes.

Most importantly, in this session you'll learn basic blending strategies: Every participant is invited to select 5 materials to work with, and spends some time blending their own formulations.

Every participant takes home 5 vials and a small spray bottle of their favorite blend.

Join us!

CANCELLATION POLICY!

When we host a class or workshop, we often order the materials to be used in the class well in advance, based on how many people have signed up (and padding a bit for safety). We also use class proceeds to pay our teachers. Although we realize that life has a funny way of getting in the way of the best laid plans, as a small non-profit we cannot afford to carry the burden of lost proceeds and materials.

With that in mind, here is our refund policy:

– Cancellation with refund or credit requests made 2 weeks or more (14 days) before the scheduled class will be honored with gusto! We’ll miss you, but will 100% refund your spot, or give you credit for another class.
– Refunds or class credits requested less than 14 days before the scheduled class: We will refund you 50% of your class fee. Why? Because we’ve already ordered the materials.
– Refunds or class credits requested less than 48 hours before the class, on the day of the class or after the class has happened will not be granted.

Thank you!
