About The Event
Have you ever wondered how to harvest the fragrance of a flower or capture the irresistible aroma of sandalwood? Then this Hands-On Workshop is for you!
Join us and learn how people in past times collected, preserved and blended botanical extracts for cosmetic purposes. See the entire process from start to finish – then enjoy a scent sampling of irresistible aromas.
Each participant will learn to mix and bottle their own unique creation. All bottles are reproduced from excavations in 18th century Virginia and sealed with a cork and red sealing wax.
Perfume Ingredients are all-natural, holistic, organic and pharmaceutical grade.
Agecroft Hall & Gardens will be hosting this workshop, led by Rebecca Suerdieck. She is a second generation history educator from Colonial Williamsburg and specialist in the forgotten skills of early American women.
