August 22nd has come and gone. Though the workshop didn't fill up (we had 5 students sign up, one called in to cancel at the last minute, and two were no-shows), there were still two very enthusiastic and eager natural botanical perfumery students to teach. As an instructor, I prefer the smaller class size -- this particular workshop is limited to 6 students as more than that gets tedious and out-of-control (so many questions!) As it turned out, two students was plenty. We covered a lot of ground, sipped a little jasmine green tea, traded a few anecdotes, and enjoyed a very relaxed day. All in all, I'd say it was perhaps the best class I've taught so far.
