Join Tanya Moulding, the Perfume Mistress, for an afternoon exploring the ancient, devotional art of incense.
Since the days of ancient Egypt and Rome, incense has been used for purification, ceremony, devotion and pure pleasure. Today, with 5,000+ years of tradition and aesthetic refinement at its core, the use of incense is reaching new levels of popularity.
Join Tanya Moulding for an afternoon exploring the ancient, devotional art of incense. This creative, practical workshop focuses on using premium fragrant materials, such as resins, herbs; fruits; flowers seeds; spices and essential oils selected for their historic, therapeutic, fragrant and magical resonance.
You will be introduced to a variety of plant botanicals and essential oils, via smell and touch. We will explore their history and uses, and you will learn how to select and blend them to create your own beautiful and unique loose incense to take home.
Tickets: £35/£40 and the fee includes workshop notes, all materials and your bespoke jar of loose incense.
The workshop will take place at Rosendale Allotments, 227 Rosendale Rd, Norwood, London SE21 8LP.
