RETREAT REGISTRATION CANCELLATION POLICY

If retreat registration cancellation becomes necessary, a full refund will be granted

only if requested by Sunday, January 15, 2017.

NO REFUNDS will be granted AFTER THIS DATE.

If cancellation is made after this date, the retreat notebook will be mailed to you.

Chris will unwrap and wrap the many varieties of product packaging. An interactive demonstration review on both sides of the photo. It's all about presentation, pop, and product. A beautiful soap sometimes remains a hidden treasure because of packaging. Boring wrapped soaps graduate to soap archives of no return.
