Description

The workshops are held in the Aroma Natural farmhouse kitchen near the wonderful North Norfolk coast in Hindringham. This workshop is ideal for beginners and is held on a One to One basis where you are guaranteed my whole attention for the day or in small groups of up to three people. Natural ingredients are used in this course and the course is suitable for vegetarians and vegans. I am also experienced in using botanicals, herbal infused oils and essential oils. Every person will be using 'loaf' moulds and will make approximately 500g of soap, so around five x 100g bars. I want each person to have a memorable day so we start the morning with a coffee/tea and chat so we can all get to know each other and relax. I can also arrange workshops for you and your friends or family on a day suitable to us both, which can be a free Saturday or week day.

Having formulated, made and sold my own skincare products for many years I now concentrate on teaching others to do the same. I will teach you to make your own soap, skincare and perfume and for anyone wishing to start their own business I will guide you through every stage from formulating, making, being legal, branding and marketing and making a profit. I teach in the comfort of my own home in the amazing countryside of North Norfolk. I also offer one to one workshops for those who prefer it.
