Loved the full day workshop! Nic is fabulous, patient and generous with her knowledge and experience while not being prescriptive and really letting you try things out. Had the best fun and came away with loads of goodies I’m delighted to have crafted. If you haven’t been, go. If you’ve been before, go again!
PS. I’d go again just for the fantastic lunch. So yummy.
The workshop was well organised and it was amazing how much we learnt to make lovely soaps, creams, bath bombs, lip balms, bath bombs, bath truffles, body butter and body scrub in a day. Nic and Ben are great facilitators. I enjoyed it very much.
