"I had been considering this workshop for a while and finally attended last Saturday and I am so pleased I did. It was a very informative workshop, Allison has such a wealth of knowledge that she shared with us, we made a facial oil, balm, lotion and toner to bring home with us. I am now keen to try making the body lotion/ hand cream. Thank you Allison for a lovely enjoyable day."

Linda Lillig reviewed: Organic Skincare Workshop (Minimum 2 Attendees £90 per person)

"Spent a very informative day with Allison, she was very enthusiastic about her subject and was keen for us to enjoy our day, which we did, thank you! Made a facial oil, face cream and balm and a toner. I particularly like the face cream we made, it has really soothed my quite sensitive skin. I hope to be able to replicate the formula again! Was a real eye opener to see that it is perfectly possible to make lovely organic products at home, with not too much equipment. Thank you Allison! "

Maid in the Meadow responded:

"Linda, Thank you so much for your lovely review. It was a pleasure to spend the day with you both and I'm so pleased your moisturiser has been successful in helping to soothe your skin. Don't forget, if you need any help recreating your products do drop me a message. Best Wishes Allison 💚"

Manal reviewed: 1-to-1 Organic Skincare Workshop at Maid in the Meadow

"The course with Alison is absolutely full of learning and information. I really learnt a lot. One day was not enough. If you want to learn about skin care from an experienced formulator and all the health and safety of making skin care products, you are at the right place. Alison was also very kind and a listener. She doesn’t only provide recipes that you can find anywhere online, in-fact she teaches you how to formulate and come up with any product you have in mind. She is an encyclopedia of handmade skin care products. She is fun to work with and a great host as well. I highly recommend Alison for a skin care workshop."

Maid in the Meadow responded:

"Thank you for your lovely review and recommendation. It was so nice to meet you and I'm glad you had fun and enjoyed your day making your bespoke skincare products in my workshop. I hope you feel inspired now, to go on and create more products in the future with the skills you have learned. If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to contact me. Kind regards Allison"

Rachel S reviewed: 1-to-1 Organic Skincare Workshop at Maid in the Meadow

"Allison was very welcoming and friendly. She went into depth with information on the oils, waxes, butters, essential oils etc. She listened to my preferences and tailored her recipes accordingly. She kept the processes simple and straightforward to enable me to produce my own products in the future. We ran over time but continued so to make all 4 products. I left with the 4 products listed plus a couple more goodies and a handbook for future reference. I would highly recommend Allison and this workshop if you are looking to make luxurious, natural products for yourself or family."

Maid in the Meadow responded:

"Thank you so much for your lovely review Rachel. It was a pleasure to meet you and I'm glad you enjoyed your day in my workshop and hope you enjoy the beautiful products you made. It was definitely a challenge keeping cool in the workshop with the weather temperature 🥵 Do let me know how you get on with all of your products and if there is anything you're unsure of from the day or any information you would like please don't hesitate to contact me. Allison 💚 🐝"

Patricia reviewed: Organic Skincare Workshop (Minimum 2 Attendees £90 per person)

"The day spent with Allison at Maid in the Meadow was so pleasant and I highly recommend. I learned about organic formulations- from facial oils, balms and face creams. I have wanted to learn to make skin care products and this course jump started me and gave me confidence to continue and try new things too. Allison is flexible and tailored the day for me. She is very knowledgeable and made sure I understood the why behind the how. The setting is in her lovely workshop surrounded by wonderful flowers and greenery. This is a great day with friends, family or just by yourself."

Elaine reviewed: Mother and Daughter Special One Day Workshop £75pp

"My daughters and I had an absolutely fantastic time. Only three years later than my first enquiry, covid! Allison is a lovely friendly lady and was patient with us, me especially. We made some lovely products which I can assure you are in full use. We even got to meet one of their beautiful dogs, (by our choice) I fully recommend this course, only downside is it goes too quickly. Thank you Allison hope to see you soon. "

Maid in the Meadow responded:

Margaret Gwyer reviewed: Mother and Daughter Special One Day Workshop £75pp

"A fabulous day with my 11 year old learning about how to create a range of products. A great mix of hands-on making, discussion and testing out Allison's lovely products. It was a really special day and as I write this my daughter is making products. It has really inspired her (and me)! I would absolutely recommend the workshop. While it is an expensive day, we made a full range of products (Allison tailored this for us) and got a wealth of information so it was well worth it!!"

Maid in the Meadow responded:

"Hi Margaret, Thank you for your lovely review and I'm so happy you both had such a special day with your daughter. It was a fun day with you both and I'm thrilled that your daughter and you have been so inspired. I was impressed by her passion for natural skincare and I'm sure she will go on to be a young, successful entrepeneur ❤️"

Caitlin Avery reviewed: 1-to-1 Organic Skincare Workshop at Maid in the Meadow

"I’m giddy with excitement following my 1-day course with Allison. A whole new world has been unlocked. Allison generously imparted so much wisdom and guidance which has left me feeling brave enough to give it a try in my own kitchen. But putting the gift of knowledge to one side, can I just talk about gift of handmade products… I mean wowza… I came away with some really lovely facial creams and potions. They feel great on my skin and smell so good. Anyway in short, I loved it and can’t wait to kick start my new hobby. Oh gosh, and I must mention… what a lot of fun. So many laughs and enjoyable moments. Thank you Allison! "

Maid in the Meadow responded:

"Thank you for your enthusiastic review Caitlin and I'm so glad you enjoyed your day, It was a pleasure to spend the day with you. Your energy and positive outlook was so refreshing and I'm still smiling just thinking about it. I do hope you enjoy using your gorgeous products and try some more of the formulae in the handbook. Looking forward to seeing you in future to make some body care products. Best wishes, Allison"

Becky Wilson reviewed: 1-to-1 Organic Skincare Workshop at Maid in the Meadow

"I highly recommend this course with Allison. I love her vision and ethos which aligns with my own in relation to skincare. She is exceedingly knowledgeable and went above and beyond in every way, from listening to the purpose of me doing the course and sourcing additional items to help tailor it according to my reason. Allison is very welcoming; we had a right giggle! Her after course care is fab, where you can ask any question as and when required. It's a 5 out of 5 from me!"

Maid in the Meadow responded:

"Thank you so much for your lovely review and recommendation Becky and I'm so glad you enjoyed your day in the workshop. It was a fun and productive day and I'm really looking forward to seeing you develop your sustainable skincare concept further in the future - Good Luck!"

Julie Parsons reviewed: 1-to-1 Organic Skincare Workshop at Maid in the Meadow

"I spent an awesome day with the lovely friendly Alison learning how to make skincare products. There was so much to take in but Alison was so patient with me, keeping the pace to match my need. I got to make facial oil, toner, cleansing balm and moisturiser. Since doing the course I have really enjoyed using what I made, my skin is positively blooming. I cherished having ‘me’ time outside of my usual hectic schedule. I thoroughly recommend doing this course. I will certainly be back when my products run out. Award 5***** ❤️"

Maid in the Meadow responded:

Shabana. reviewed: 1-to-1 Organic Skincare Workshop at Maid in the Meadow

"I had a lovely day at the skincare work shop, there was a lot of information to take in at that time, but slowly I am processing it in. I liked making lip balm, lotion, face oil, especially the rose toner I made it smells really lovely. Everything was explained to me. Allison is very knowledgeable and she was very helpful to me. I just wish she was near to where I am in Birmingham. The workshop has given me lots of ideas. I plan to visit the workshop again in the near future."

Maid in the Meadow responded:

"Shabana, thank you for your lovely review and I'm so glad you enjoyed your day and the products you made and are feeling inspired. I'm looking forward to welcoming you back to the workshop and please don't hesitate to email me if you have any questions."

Judy reviewed: 1-to-1 Organic Skincare Workshop at Maid in the Meadow

"I had an excellent day with Allison - she is really well versed in the technical side of making your own cosmetics but she made it very easy to understand. We had a lovely day and I would recommend the experience to any one with an interest in the subject or just wanting an interesting day out. I have a specific interest in re-creating a product that is no longer available and although it was not part of the course Allison has done a lot of research into what I might need and how to go about replicating it. Thank you so much."

Maid in the Meadow responded:

"Thank you so much for your review Judy and I'm so pleased you enjoyed you day in the workshop, it was definitely a fun day. I do hope you enjoy using the range of products you made and look forward to hearing from you when your own formulating project is complete. Best wishes for the future"

Julie reviewed: 1-to-1 Organic Skincare Workshop at Maid in the Meadow

"Spent a very enjoyable day learning all about oils, actives and preservatives. Made amazing products to take home together with a comprehensive workbook so I can continue this exciting craft. There’s nothing better than making my own cleansers, balms, creams/lotions and facial oils, knowing exactly what’s gone in them, tailored to what my skin needs. Allison is extremely knowledgeable and passionate in the subject which makes the experience first class."

Claire reviewed: 1-to-1 Organic Skincare Workshop at Maid in the Meadow

"Allison is generous with her vast knowledge, (which somehow she distilled into informative bite size chunks),....her time and her friendship. She goes above and beyond to make the day special for you, even staying in touch to help you get even more from the day. The products she helps you to make are really lovely, feeling all the more special for having made them. If Allison sold a starter kit, I would have definitely bought it from her, although she provides all her trusted suppliers......you everything you need to know to get started. Thank you for a wonderful day and the knowledge to make some great skincare products."

Maid in the Meadow responded:

"Thank you for your lovely review Claire. I’m so glad you enjoyed your day in the workshop and love the products you made. It was a fun day! A starter kit is a great idea and i will definitely consider your idea going forward. Best wishes, Allison"
