Open House and The Spare Room - Howay Inn.....
New locations for the candle making workshops have now been added to the website! The first is an amazing indy shop and workspace in Low Fell, Gateshead called Open House and The Spare Room headed up by Richard Murr - I couldn't resist making a few purchases the last time I was there (and I can neither confirm nor deny having some of the gorgeous Elivs and Kresse products posted out to me after their recent pop up shop there!). Richard specialises in vintage clothing and works hard to source fabulous ethically produced clothing, accessories and skincare for Open House and then has designed an amazing workspace downstairs in the shop, known as The Spare Room. I am going to be using The Spare Room to hold a candle making workshop on Saturday 10th Nov 2018 at 2pm. At the time of writing we have 3 spaces left on the workshop and it is being offered at the SPECIAL OFFER opening price of £25 per person (usual price £30). We will be using soy wax and a massive range of fragrance oils to create your very own scented container candles to take home with you (2 x 100ml candle tins). Tickets are available online - click here for details.
It's MY Retreat.....
Another one of my favourite places to visit is My Retreat in Cullercoats. A warm and welcoming place created by Julia Murray specialising in the most amazing spa therapies - I arrive stressed with muscles in knots and float out on a cloud of relaxed dreaminess! So I am thrilled to have been asked to co-host an event with Julia for her special 'Seasonal Spice' event. With a choice from 2 workshops or a full day to attend both workshops with a free lunch thrown in! The morning workshop will be hosted by Julia and will centre around essential oils specifically chosen for the Christmas season and I will host the afternoon workshop which will be candle making using essential oil blends. Tickets are available via My Retreat - checkout their Facebook Events Page with details of the events and links to purchase tickets online. Tickets start at £20 - £45 per person.
I do hope you can join me on either of the events and do make sure to head over to the facebook pages of My Retreat and Open House and give them a like and perhaps pay them a visit too!
Christmas Is A Coming.....
And finally, I am busy gearing up for the forthcoming Christmas Candle Making Workshops which we have scheduled in Whitley Bay, North Shields and Sedgefield in November and December. We will be making an extra large candle in a handmade metal container - this will be a bumper wax delight containing 400g of soy wax and a massive 40g of fragrance oil of your seasonal choice! I will be bringing along Gingerbread, Frankincense and Myrrh, Spiced Apple and the ever popular Christmas Spice with me. It's a great workshop for the run up to the festive period and will make a great gift for your loved one or you! There are a limited spaces left - check out the workshops page online for availability and to purchase your tickets online.
Bye for now!
