Natural Perfumery at Memorial Chapel

Natural Perfumery at the

Memorial Chapel

Saturday 23rd June

12pm – 4pm

The Poetry Apothecary returns with a special summer session at the open air Memorial Chapel on Falkland Estate (Centre for Stewardship) – immersed in nature and landscape, with the fresh air around us.

The Chapel is open-roofed – we will have a sheltered space available if the weather is unfavourable, so the session will go ahead regardless!

In this unique workshop, you will create your own essential oil scent-blend to take home. Inspired by what you create, we will also look at ways to dream up a name and short description for your blend. You will learn about essential oils and their uses in natural perfumery; techniques in designing and blending a scent; developing skills and ideas for your own ‘holistic creative practice’.

We will gather from 11.30am at the Centre for Stewardship Stables Building, next to the car park – where there are toilets and a cafe while you wait. We will then take the short walk together to the Chapel. Some outdoor walking is required (woodland path). Please bring layers to wear – if the weather is too chilly, windy or if it rains, we will move to an indoor space.

Materials will be provided, but bring a notebook and pen to take your own notes.

Rebecca Sharp is a writer and artist whose practice encompasses text, performance, visual and collaborative projects. In recent years she has been working with perfumery and essential oils – in 2016 Rebecca was Poet-Perfumer in Residence with StAnza: Scotland’s International Poetry Festival, where she made new work combining poems and natural perfume blends. She established Poetry Apothecary as a way to explore scent, ecology and creativity, to make new work and offer participatory workshops.

12.00pm-4.00pm – please arrive from 11.30am, to meet at the Stables Building / Hub Cafe.

£45 – cost includes all materials.

Ages 16+
