Event description

Description

Are you interested in aromatherapy and organic skincare?

Would you like to know more about how you can safely use essential oils at home? Or maybe you would like to learn how to make your own organic skincare products?

We have a range of workshops suitable from absolute beginners to experienced aromatherapists and skincare entrepreneurs. Learn how to design and make your organic own skincare products or take the next step into turning your passion into an organic Indie brand.

Pop over and learn all about us! https://purelyskincare.co.uk

Introduction to Making Organic Skincare is an introductory workshop, which will provide an opportunity for you to develop and make your own organic skincare products, under the guidance of our experienced tutor. We will explore common themes in skincare ‘problems’ and look at different products to see how they can help to address these issues.

You will have the opportunity to explore different organic ingredients, learning about their particular characteristics, and choose from a range of products to make and take home.

Please note that we may use organic beeswax when we are making our products, so if you are vegan and would prefer not to use beeswax, please let us know, as we have alternatives we can use in our balms instead.

At the end of the day, you will have learned:

  • Some common causes of skincare issues;

  • How ingredients and products may alleviate some of the issues;

  • How to use some of these ingredients to develop and make skincare products;

  • The importance of safe development, manufacture and use of skincare products, and some important legal information.

You will also receive:

  • A certificate of attendance;

  • Your own hand-made skincare products, in 3 varieties.

  • A complimentary Purely Skincare apron.

Key Points:

  • Informative and fun sessions

  • Small group size – a maximum of 6 participants in a session

  • Learn new skills and build on existing knowledge

  • Take home your own hand-made products

  • Receive a certificate of attendance

How old do I need to be to attend a workshop?

These workshops are intended for people over 16 years of age and we are unable to accommodate children in the workshop.

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 workshops@purelyskincare.co.uk 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 workshops@purelyskincare.co.uk 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 products, 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 SK2: From crafter to entrepreneur: Making and selling your own products to the public.

What facilities are available at the venue?

Tutbury Village Hall is easily accessible in the centre of historic Tutbury, in sight of Tutbury Castle. All facilities are on one level, with ramped access at the main door. There are male and female toilets and an accessible toilet just inside the large and welcoming entrance hall. There is also a large kitchen with a fridge and cooking/warming facilities if you wish to bring something hot for lunch, and a large urn (essential for tea and coffee!).

There is a small amount of onsite parking, with one accessible parking space. There is also a free car park at the top of Monk Street.

What do I need to bring to the workshop?

We will provide all the equipment and ingredients you will need for the day. We have small tables to work on and there are ample chairs for resting or sitting chatting at break times.

A notepad and pen will be useful. Although we will be providing materials for you to take home, it is always a good idea to jot down a few notes to remind yourself what, how or why you did something!

We would advise that you wear comfortable shoes and clothes, as we may be standing, stirring and mixing for a while. Although you will be wearing an apron, we will be working with oils, so don’t wear your favourite clothes!

You are welcome to bring a packed lunch, or you can visit one of our local cafes. We will provide refreshments, so please let us know if you have any allergies, intolerances or dislikes.

We start at 09.30 with introductions and refreshments, and finish at 15.30, with half an hour for lunch.

If you still have questions that we haven’t answered, please email us on workshops@purelyskincare.co.uk
