Scented Memories

If Last Place On Earth was your home, what scents would you like it to emit? What smells would bring you a sense of peace and comfort or remind you of a fond memory?

Join Future 20 artist, Melissa Sorrell for this one-hour sensory online workshop on how to create your own scented memory pouch. A personal object to remind you of the past or future that you can place in your home to create feelings of positivity in these strange times. This workshop is open anyone interested in how different smells can affect your body and mind, where Melissa will encourage you to use natural materials found within your home, garden or neighbourhood.
