Loved this class. Such a simple and impressive skill to have up my sleeve. Will continue to practice and explore the options with homemade incense.

Nichola is so knowledgeable and shares her passion for handmade goodness in a calm and easy way. The class is well paced and there is plenty of time and opportunity to ask questions. The online element is well executed, you can see from multiple camera perspectives what she is doing. Great for adults and children alike. Thank you!
