The Workshop

In this workshop, participants will learn to create incense paper, similar to French Papier d’Arménie or Italian Carta Aromatica. Incense paper is a scented paper treated to burn slowly, releasing a delightful fragrance that lingers in the air for a few days.

During the workshop, participants can choose from pre-cut shapes or cut their own shapes from our premium incense paper stock. They will then prepare the paper for optimal burning and coat it with a fragrance oil of their choice. We provide the various fragrance oils from our Incense Paper Kit, but we can also offer additional blends to suit your preferences. Participants will leave with their incense papers stored safely in a metal tin. After allowing them to dry for a few hours, they can burn the papers to release the fragrances into their homes.
