After a quick meet and greet we will start by foraging for flowers and botanicals across our 30 acre farm then move to the distillery to extract the botanicals into essential oils and floral waters. Once we have enough fragrant oils we move to our old world apothecary to make a natural perfume using vintage copper stills and the freshly distilled essential oils. Once your perfume blended and completed you can bottle, lable and wax seal your creation.
From perfumery we move to candle making where you will learn about wax, Color and fragrance then make a basic candle before attempting an elaborate multi layered and coloured carved candle.
Our last craft of the day will be soap making where we will use the floral waters we distilled earlier in the day to make natural soaps using traditional cold and hot process, methods, ingredients and tools.
Throughout the day there will be tea, coffee and refreshments and a wonderful picnic lunch in our Tree House or Shepherds Huts. We have 23 friendly farm animals to meet, a pond with row boat, rope bridges, woodlands, creeks and breathtaking views to enjoy during you Artisan Day.
