Gift an unforgettable experience for Mother's Day!

08 May 2019

So many women in our lives give us strength, warmth and lasting memories, so why not gift them an experience back?

We aren't talking about taking them to brunch in the city or buying fresh flowers, but a real hands-on experience that'll leave a lasting impression.

Short Courses are a fun an interactive way to show you appreciate them, by giving them some 'me' time-out. Tell her you love her, whether it's a parent or a bestie, and why not come along for a short course with them?

We've found 5 of our Short Courses that'll be the perfect gift this Mothers Day!

Henna Painting Workshop

Give your mum the chance to explore the ancient art of henna painting, with this one day workshop. After an introduction to the basics of traditional pattern making, learn how to hold and draw with a henna cone, progressing from simple designs for fingers and palms then moving to more complex designs for the full hand. A gift any mum would love!

Who doesn't want warm and cosy feet, especially with winter well on its way?
