  1. Thanks Joanne,
    Glad you enjoyed it! I also run the skincare workshop for The Make Lounge in which we make a lotion which is a bit more advanced as well as a cleanser, toner and face scrub. I don’t have anything else in the pipeline in London at the moment as I am finishing the book but I have a weekend at Trill Farm in Dorset which is owned by Romy Fraser the original founder of Neal’s Yard Remedies. I am sure I will have some more dates over the summer when I do publicity for my book and as you are on my mailing list you will be the first to know 🙂


  2. Hi Karen,

    I just wanted to say a big thank you for a very informative and friendly course last Monday. I really enjoyed it and found your style of teaching very laidback and you gave out plenty of hints and tips.

    I’d love to do another course with you, one that expands on the basic course we did on Monday.

    Please let me know if your planning any advanced course or can recommend any as I am keen to study and practice making bath and body products as a hobby and who knows where it may lead 🙂

    many thanks

  3. Hello Karen

    I attended your bath beauty products workshop in the Make Lounge a couple of months ago. I wanted to thank you, as I made my xmas presents for all the women in the family from what I learned with you. They are so lovely!

    I wanted to ask to be added to your newsletter, if you have one, as I would like to know about your other workshops in the future.
