About the Course

Learn how to make your own (plastic free) lip balm, face and hand cream each scented with your preferred herbs and oils. Make some hand rolled candles from natural bees wax.

The day is held in our bee barn and if weather permits in our lovely wild meadow, which during the summer months is resplendent with native flowers.

We will give you the recipes so you can practice at home and we hope it will encourage you to start to explore the fascinating art of making your own creams and lotions.

No plastics will be used.

We also take private bookings for hen parties or birthday celebrations. We can offer alternative catering packages.

Various dates; 10am until 2pm from 20th April, 10th May, 15th June, 27th July, 17th August and 14th September.
Evening sessions 5pm until 9pm on 19th July and the 30th August
