Cake & Cocktails Workshops This Autumn

Following the success of my first cake-based workshop earlier this year, I am thrilled to let you know that I am going to be offering 2 new workshops with The Secluded Tea Party and some very lovely local business women to make these even better than before. 

Naturally Tea, cake and even cocktails & mocktails are included in these too... even better if you ask me!

These 2 events will be ticketed (so book now at just £20 per person to grab your place!) and hosted at Greens Coffee & Co in Cambourne, just outside of Cambridge. 
The PERFECT space to enjoy a couple of hours away from your normal stresses and distractions, meet some new people, grab a drink or two and a slice of cake and learn something new whilst you are with us. There is plenty of free parking too, an added bonus for Cambridgeshire hehe.  

 Social Media, Cake & Cocktails - Twitter Basics 
Hosted on Thursday 18th October 2012 
7pm - 9pm

With our Twitter basics workshop, I can teach you how to get a Twitter account up and running, be it for social purposes, or to help promote a business, event or a charity for example. 
I have used various forms of Social Media to fill my own events for the last 2 years or so and the aim of this event is to have fun and help people who are already on and unsure of how to make the most of it or for people scared or unsure on how to use this fairly new and confusing form of social media. 
It's a great platform to help you connect with new people, learn fun facts, plan a new or exiting social life and I will give you plain and simple guides on how to get the most out of it in it's basic form, with some hints and tips thrown in for good measure. 

Through my experience, I have realise that I'm a fantastic networker, so if you are needing to gain some advice on how to network through Twitter, again, I'm happy to share my thoughts and help you out the best I can : )

Vintage Glamour Make Up, Cake & Cocktails 
Hosted on Thursday 22nd November 2012 
7pm - 9.30pm

Ever wanted to learn how to do your own glamourous vintage-inspired make up and make yourself look like a stunning film star for a special event, for a Xmas party or just for the heck of it?.... Well now you can!

Now is your chance... With this workshop, myself and Greens Coffee are joining forces with Michelle Bullivant, a local expert on historical makeup who can teach you how to do your own make up in front of a small mirror on the night, with all equipment provided on the night. 

Just bring your face as a blank canvas and she will show you the tips and tricks you always wish you could be told and she will help you decide which colours and styles you might suit if you are at all unsure. 

Michelle Bullivant works as a professional local historian, landscape archaeologist, freelance lecturer and researcher based n Cambridge and she specialises in special occasion makeovers is an expert on historical makeup. She has recently provided on site Make Up Artist services for film production, including special effects, for a recent film 'The Haunting of Harry Payne'.

Michelle & her team have also been seen providing 1940's makeup demonstrations to 40's events including Ramsey 1940's weekend and Haddenham Blossoms and Bygones, Cherry Hinton Hall, Cambridgeshire (for Cambridge City Council, Cambridge International School and the Friends of Cherry Hinton Hall). 

Be sure to bring your pocket money with you to purchase her goodies on the night, either for yourself or as Christmas presents at this relaxed and informal evening, but no pressure. You can always spend the pennies on more drinks if the mood takes you ; ) 

You are also welcome to stay after either of this fabulous events for more of a chat with your fellow group, should you wish to make more of an evening of it. 

Come along alone or with friends, either way, it's the perfect night out, leave the kids at home with the other half, grab your bag and run!.... Just for a while ; ) 
... And learn a new skill whilst you are with us!

Michelle says you can expect as follows: 

This is a really good fun, vintage makeup workshop where you and your guests get to play around with makeup and colours and find what suits you. 
What Happens:
You each get a little tray and mirror and some amazing makeup for you to play with, including eyeshadows, eyeliner, lip liner, mascara, blusher, lipgloss and lots more. I will also match your Mineral Powder foundation for you. You all sit down round a table and I teach you all different ways to apply the makeup, with tips and techniques. With the Vintage Makeup Workshop you'll learn how to re-create the glamorous looks from the Hollywood Movies and Wartime eras. During the get together you will all put on your makeup step by step and finish off looking gorgeous, there is no need to come without your usual makeup on as we will be starting off with some basic cleansing and moisturising anyway and you'll even get a hand and lip treatment too!
You’ll have you own little form for you to keep where you can jot down any notes and colours you liked so that when you next go and buy some makeup you’ll know what suits you best.
At the end there will be a selection of makeup for you to purchase if you would like to treat yourself and take some home :) I do not do pushy sales and this get together is for you to learn new tips and make yourself feel glamorous but if you would like to treat yourself to some goodies at the end I accept cash or cheques. If you'd like to know more about what I do, the products I use and see some before and after makeup pics then just take a peek at my website
