The art of a natural home: creating your own organic beauty and homewares with Rebecca Sullivan: Cotswolds
22nd May 2019
Join natural living advocate, author and founder of the Granny Skills Movement, Rebecca Sullivan for a full day workshop at Daylesford learning how to create organic products from natural materials, including some foraged from our organic Farm and Market Garden. Use natural dyes to create a beautiful silk scarf and handy petal tote bag and get hands on making your own body scrubs, toners, herbal teas and even natural toothpaste. Throughout the day Rebecca will discuss and demonstrate ways that ingredients from your own garden and local area can be used as alternatives to modern day mass manufactured products, giving you the skills to make organic products for every room of your home.
Beginning with the chance to explore the Daylesford estate and forage for wild materials, the day includes a delicious seasonal lunch and refreshments. Please bring footwear which is suitable for some time spent outside in our Market Garden.
