Christmas is our favourite time of the year and we love nothing more than entertaining and attending as many festivities as we can squeeze in from November. So it was music to our ears when we heard the South Bank favourite, Mondrian London, is offering guests the chance to get creative with a series of Christmas workshops for us to brush up on our skills.
The series of workshops will take place over four days from Wednesday 29th November to Tuesday 5th December and include hands-on, creative classes from forward-thinking florists Princess & Kō and Columbia Creative, organic skincare brand, Soveral and East London lifestyle brand, Earl of East London.
Already popular (sounds like there’s others like us), we hear classes are selling out. The Princess & Kō Wreath Making workshop and the Columbia Creative Christmas Centrepiece workshop are gone but fear not – there’s still many more to get involved with and impress your friends.
Monday 4th December, 6:30pm – 8:30pm – Soveral Blend Your Own: Rescue Oil workshop
Bringing the joy of nature into the everyday, organic skincare brand Soveral will be providing a master class in how to effectively use essential oils in a bespoke oil-blending workshop. Following founder, Alexandra Soveral’s expert guidance, the class will start with an essential oil 101, where guests will learn how they can be used to enhance your health and boost your immune system. Alexandra will then teach guests how to blend their own rescue oil, which can be taken away in the form of a roll-on oil – the perfect antidote to the festive party season.
Tuesday 5th December, 7pm – 9pm – Earl of East London Candle Making workshop
Expert candle makers, Earl of East London, will guide guests through the step-by-step candle making process and help them to create their very own smoke & musk or viagem candle. Guests will be invited to smell and test a variety of fragrances and essential oils while picking up hints and tips on how to create the perfect fragrance; before putting everything they’ve learnt into action and creating their own 6oz scented soy wax candle. The candles will need to cure overnight so guests can either collect their candle from Mondrian London the following day, or they will be posted out to each guest.
So, whether it’s learning how to get that Christmas wreath just right or creating a bespoke soy wax candle as a gift for someone special, Mondrian London’s Christmas Craft Week will help guests to unlock their creativity and create something truly personal and special just in time for Christmas.
Price: From £50 (including entry to the chosen workshop and two glasses of Prosecco). Book tickets here
