History of Cosmetics workshop - 14th December 2019 10am-4pm
Take an in depth look at how our fascination with make-up and perfume has changed over time. From Egyptian eye-paint and Roman perfumes, through Tudor sweet bags and Georgian 'powder and paint', to morale boosting lipstick during WW2.
We will be hands on with original and replica containers and reconstructed cosmetic preparations. We will also make lip paint and pomander beads to take home.
Workshop tutor is Sally Pointer the author of 'The Artifice of Beauty, a history and practical guide to perfumes and cosmetics'. Sally has a longstanding research interest in reconstructing historical beauty recipes.
Guidance will be on-hand at all times.
