Saskia Wilson-Brown

Saskia Wilson-Brown, founder of the Institute for Art and Olfaction, joins Bridge Projects to present a talk and workshop that explores historic aromatic materials associated with utopia, paradise, and other conceptions of the divine or the ideal. In this two-hour session, Saskia will lead participants through a smelling session, discussing important cultural associations of scent across a variety of liturgical and secular beliefs, as well as basic principles of working experimentally with scent. After smelling and discussing, Saskia will lead the group in a small blending exercise, helping participants engage with the deeply historic creative practice of perfumery.
