In association with New Westminster Museum’s feature exhibition about food security, join us as we explore natural skincare using something many of us already have at home – coffee!

This is a great class for all coffee lovers or anyone who needs a little natural ‘get up and go” added to their current skin care regime.  All supplies included.
