Saturday 18 December, 1-3pm, Natural body care products workshop with Sonia Barrish

This class is held at our Arts Centre workshop, which is located upstairs in the Boys’ High building at 28 Worcester Boulevard.


Sonia Barrish will show you how easy making your own body care products can be so that you can build confidence towards making your own products at home.

Learn how to make products to nourish and look after your skin! We’ll be using organic food grade oils, butters & waxes to make our own body care products. Each participant will take home a 15gm lip balm, 50gm deodorant, and 100gm whipped body butter . Learn about ratios, substitutions, and the why of making your own skincare.

Please bring an apron and a pen. Sonia will supply all other materials, as well as a handout with recipes and space for notes.

This class is suitable for children 10 and over, accompanied by an adult (you need to purchase two places in this instance) or for 14 and over on their own.

There are 9 places in this workshop.

Minimum numbers are required for the class to run.

About your tutor Sonia Barrish

Sonia has a passion for living simply and sustainably. She enjoys and respects nature’s bounty and believes in making use of what can be found in nature to fulfil our everyday needs. Much of what she has learnt has been self-taught through extensive research, as well as trial & error. Sonia is now keen and ready to pass on this knowledge to others to enable their own sustainable lifestyle journeys.

Bookings are essential, non-refundable and non-transferable. We do, however, understand that things come up and try and accommodate people to the best of our ability. This can include moving people to another class or a refund - but please be aware that this is reliant on us filling the original spot.

This is because all of our pricing, and our efforts to keep costs as low as possible while still paying the tutors a fee commensurate with their experience and allowing them to cover the costs of living, is based on running these classes with a certain number of participants.

We are grateful to be able to offer this workshop in a partially subsidised manner because of support from Creative New Zealand, and from Te Matatiki Toi Ora the Arts Centre.

Management of COVID-19 risk:

Participants who are unwell, or who are required to self-isolate, must not attend the workshop. Refunds will be given if participants need to miss the workshop in order to manage the risk of COVID-19, however we need to be advised of this as soon as possible, so that we can fill the space. Refunds will not be given if participants arrive to the workshop unwell on the day.
