Intermountain Nursery Workshop

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.

  1. Justine,

    The class was great! We couldn't have asked for better weather or a more perfect setting. I learned so much from you and am definitely hooked on natural botanical perfumery now. What a fun and informative day! The hubby liked my first attempt too..

    Thanks so much & I'm looking forward to seeing you at the Harvest Festival in October!
