Over the course of the weekend, we’ll be treated to a couple of workshops designed to get your mind out of the matrix and into the present:
Watercolour Painting with Katie Johnston
Katie is a freelance designer and watercolour illustrator based in London. She’ll be running a 2 hour workshop for us inspired by Elmley Nature Reserve, using botanicals as inspiration.
Katie trained at the Royal College of Art, has recently published her first book and frequently runs workshops around London.
Candle Making with London Refinery
On the Sunday, we’ll have a 1.5 hour workshop hosted by Lucy Heale, Founder of The London Refinery.
We’ll start with learning about how our sense of smell works and how fragrance affects our mood and emotions. We’ll then touch on the different fragrance families and what top, middle and base notes are.
Lastly, we’ll learn how to use the range of essential oils to blend into our own candle. We’ll will start by heating the wax, blending of the oils, and finish with pouring our own candle to take home.
Each workshop participant will have their own blending equipment, mixing jug, whisk, glassware.
