Classes in Ireland coming up in January and autumn 2019.

Scroll down to book.

Demand for classes and workshops in Ireland varies from year to year and is hard to predict. Where classes are very popular and sell out quickly if there is more demand I do my best to add more dates to meet this.

My policy is to fully book the listed classes before arranging more, otherwise running them becomes unmanageable.

Check back here for details or sign-up for my newsletter.

VENUE: Clare Youth Service, Carmody St, Ennis,  Co. Clare, Ireland

IMPORTANT: This class is over 18s only (due to restrictions at this venue).

COST: 150 including materials, hand-outs etc.

These classes now sell out within days of me listing them!

BOOKING POLICY FOR ALL 1-DAY WORKSHOPS/CLASSES

  • The cost is for the workshop and includes the cost of materials used, hand-outs provided and herbal products to take home.
  • Places are limited. Numbers of participants are always restricted to ensure quality of teaching (usually a max of 12 participants per class or 8 participants for hands-on classes).
  • These classes are aimed at adults. Please contact me if you are under 18 and want to book a class (some venues do not allow under 18s on the premises).
  • Classes are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Vivienne does not reserve places for people without payment. Payment of the full workshop fee is required in order to book your place.
  • Please book in advance! These classes take lots and lots of preparation and require Vivienne to have hand-outs printed, enough stock ordered in and prepared for every class participant and (if on east coast) time to drive and set up on the other side of the country. Last minute bookings drive Vivienne totally mad! If a class isn’t full far enough in advance then Vivienne will cancel it. Don’t expect to ring the day before and be told that it’s ok to come along the next day.

Cancellations, Transfers & Refunds: If a cancellation is received 2 weeks or more before the class then the full fee will be refunded. Refunds are not available for cancellations received 2 weeks or less before the class date. This is because class size is always restricted to ensure quality of teaching and because lots of preparation, high quality stock and time and effort go in to running these classes! It would also mean lots of time messing around on my website re-listing and promoting the place in the class at the last minute and I’m not prepared to do this or to pay someone else to do it for me. Want more info? CLICK HERE to read my policy in full.

MLM reps: are welcome to attend my classes and learn from me but, I hereby make it known that I do NOT tolerate people using my classes to recruit customers or more reps for the pyramid scheme product that they use or sell. [MLM means ‘multi-level marketing’ company: sales reps get paid commission to recruit more customers and new sales reps]. Any MLM rep doing this will be told to leave this class and will not receive a refund. I don’t promote or endorse one brand of products at my classes. Instead I clearly teach people what ingredients actually are, how to use them safely and joyfully, and give a list of reliable suppliers of the highest quality ingredients. I do NOT receive a commission from these suppliers: they are my genuine recommendations based  my years’ of experience as qualified herbalist, international educator and professional natural skincare formulator.

  Vivienne has taught workshops since 2004.

Here’s what people have said about her classes over the years…..

“Really enjoyed the day. The obvious passion that Vivienne has for her topic. The hands-on was great combined with the wonderful smells were ‘amazing’. Would not hesitate to recommend this course. Leaves me wanting more. Thank you.”

“So interesting … and the spa treatments were a lovely ending. Vivienne is wonderful“

“Great day, very informative, you made it all look so simple. Very social and the room smelt FAB.”

“Just finished that serum we made in your class. It was the best thing I ever used for my skin.

My skin is so good now, I don’t have to use foundation any more.”

“Thank you for a lovely course. I found it really helpful and practical. Looking forward to cooking up some of my own lotions soon.”

“Fantastic 2 days. An interesting and very inspiring teacher. Loved every minute of it!”

“Attended both the natural cosmetic and herbal medicine courses in Gorey in January. Both courses were very informative and enjoyable. The only issue is the courses have left me wanting to know more! Thanks Vivienne.”
