I’m so happy to be running a workshop this Sunday evening (6pm) at this year’s GEARCon!! Thanks to all the event runners and organizers who let me sign up at the last minute.┬áHere is some copy:
Resurrect another Dead Cosmetic with Kim Damio of Portland Black Lipstick Company. This year, we’ll be re-creating a mid-Victorian era violet-scented powder and (as usual) attendees will be able to take a small quantity home free of charge. Learn why violet powder contains noactual violets!! Let the story of the violet powder poisonings of 1878 chill your blood!! Hear the melancholy story of Violet Powder’s descent into modern day obscurity!! Join us and smell fabulous!!
Here is a link to the event for all the particulars:
