I have allergies – can I still attend a workshop?

We will be using several different essential and carrier oils, so it is important that you are aware of your potential allergies and intolerances and know how to deal with them. Please inform us on the booking form, so that we can discuss alternatives if necessary. If you have severe allergies, please contact us on before you book the workshop as we may suggest that it is not appropriate for you to attend. It is advisable to discuss your wish to attend a workshop with your GP if you have any concerns.

I have additional requirements – can I still attend a workshop?

We endeavour to ensure that all our workshops are fully inclusive, so if you have any concerns about your ability to participate in our workshops, please contact us on before you book, so we can discuss your queries.

Will attending the workshops enable me to sell any products I make at home?

After completing workshop SK1: Introduction to making organic skincare, you will be able to make skincare products for yourself and your family. However, there are important considerations and legal requirements for selling products to the public, so you will need to learn about and adhere to these regulations. If you are thinking about making products to sell, consider booking a place on From crafter to entrepreneur: Making and selling your own products to the public.
