I’m planning to run another of my One Day Workshops aimed at taking you from an interest in perfume and blending, to making a wearable perfume yourself – the last one was at Les Senteurs – the next will be in February 2015, it will be on a Saturday and at a central London location.
I know one or two people like to give these workshops as a Christmas gift, hence I’m advertising it now: full details to follow soon.
In addition though, I’d like to use this post to see if there is interest in a more advanced workshop the following day (therefore on a Sunday). The idea would be to look at some more difficult aspects of perfumery than are covered in the basic workshop, perhaps by exploring a category of ingredients: musks or ambers for example, with a view to sorting out the differences between materials and when to use what.
It has also been suggested to me that some people would like the opportunity for something more like a masterclass where you bring along your own, part-finished work and we have a look together at how best to take it forward.
I’m open to either or both approaches depending on what people would find most useful: so if you’ve thoughts on these or other ideas of what would be interesting to you, please let me know here and I’ll put together something that suits most contributors.
