Discover Your Inner Artisan: Natural Homemade Beauty

Appleton Farms will launch a new adult artisan workshop series focused on seasonal farm-inspired artisanal skills. Craft workshops include topics such as at-home beauty products like lip balms and healing salves, soap making and needle felting soap, and various floral crafts such as arranging, drying, and pressing. These classes are meant to reunite us with the land that support us through traditional craft education, skill building workshops, and field experiences.  Using Appleton Farms as our classroom, we will lead participants through in-depth and hands-on educational programs to teach new skills and inspire appreciation for New England's natural resources. These classes are designed for novices and each topic is inspired by the season.

This natural homemade beauty products workshop will guide you through creating your own lip balms, lotions, and salves. The garden and fields of Appleton Farms will be our inspiration and using locally harvested beeswax, herbs, and flowers participants will learn how to dry their own healing herbs, infuse oils, and create their own beauty product recipes. At the end of the workshop everyone will leave with recipes and their own handmade products.

  • Program Confirmations: We do not have physical tickets for our programs. You will receive a confirmation receipt after purchasing the class and we will email you 1-2 days in advance with additional information. There is no need to bring a printed confirmation to class.  
  • Last minute bookings: If you’re booking your ticket less than 48 hours in advance of a program, we ask that you please email appletonfarms@thetrustees.org to give us a heads up so we can alert the chef. In some cases, our chefs will need to prep several days in advance and will not be able to accommodate last minute bookings.
