Our Reputation

“This year I taught Russian-language workshops in Moscow and Minsk. Our interesting Formula Botanica courses such as the Anti-aging, the Chocolate Spa and the Facial masques are very popular. The best response I got from my students was: ‘It’s such a pleasure to be pampered with an aroma therapeutic chocolate mask and know that after a session I will look not only beautiful, but also healthy!'”

Now that you know how to become a teacher, the next stage is to learn how to teach. It’s easy to think that standing in-front of a room of people makes you a teacher, but nothing could be further from the truth.

Without learning how to teach, your workshops could be bland and boring. You need to understand how to structure the event and make sure you engage your students through ingredients, demonstrations and formulations.

This in-depth module breaks down the four main stages of a good DIY beauty workshop and lays the foundations for your amazing workshop teaching business by teaching you how to teach.

Module 4 – Pricing & Marketing Your Workshops

Once you’ve learned how to teach and plan your workshops, you need to take care of the finances. You are going to be running a business, teaching DIY beauty skills and hosting fun events for people to get to grips with green beauty. However, if you can’t turn a profit on these workshops or sell tickets, then you haven’t got a business.

By the time you’ve completed this part of the course, you’ll understand how to market your workshop tickets so you sell out all spaces. We’ll run you through strategies for online and ‘offline’ marketing, as well as sharing our 3 most successful strategies for selling tickets (which we use for our Formula Botanica conference each year – which always sells out!).

In this Module, we take you through our blueprints for costing, pricing and marketing your workshops. By the end of this lesson, you’ll be equipped with the skills to pack out your workshops with paying customers.

Module 5 – Business & Safety Skills

Now it’s time to ensure that you conduct your workshops in a professional manner in compliance with all relevant laws and regulations. It’s really important to show due diligence when you’re in charge of the welfare of others. Although making skincare isn’t the world’s most dangerous activity it does come with risks and hazards.

This module is perhaps the most important one of all. There’s no point in becoming an amazing skincare tutor, with well-attended classes and a brilliant marketing plan if one day it all comes crashing down because you failed to comply with certain rules and regulations.

In this Module you will learn how to be a teacher who works responsibly and safely. We’ll not only help you create your workshop Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) procedure, but also help you set up your all-important admin systems – including helping you with your workshop terms and conditions.
