Have you wanted to make your own soap but don't know where to start?

In this 2.5 hour workshop you will learn the ins and outs of soap making. You will be walked though the process of cold processed soap making, learn how to handle caustic soda safely and the ins and outs of using essential oils, natural botanicals and colours in your soap.

You will make and create your very own batch of soap under the guidance of an experienced soap maker. All soaps made at the workshop will be scented with essential oils (if you choose to scent your soap) and coloured using only natural colours and botanicals.

What you get?

  • Tuition of how to make soap and an instructor to walk you through the process

  • Your own batch of soap to take home that you can cut into 8-9 bars (valued at $64 retail)
  • A soap recipe and full instructions

What do I need to bring to the workshop?

  • A note book if you would like to take extra notes.
