Coconut Lotions for Day and Night
A great time was had by all and everyone went home with two tins of silky smooth coconut lotions. One had the invigorating scent of Bergamot for day and the other with calming Lavender to ease them into gentle sleep for night. Just in time for the winter season!
The Ancient Art of Paper Cutting
We had great fun and created beautiful artwork with excellent guidance from Sine Hjort as she taught this fascinating craft. We learned how to fold paper, cut basic patterns and connect lines. The concept of negative space was challenging, but we all ended up with lovely sillouettes to take home.
