Advanced Techniques - Cold Process Soapmaking 121

Advanced Techniques - Cold Process Soapmaking 121


This course is taught by award winning soapmaker, Emma Grosse.

This course is the follow on course from either the group workshop or a 121 course.

Please contact Emma to arrange a convenient date before booking.

This Advanced Techniques course is tailored to suit you as a budding soapmaker.

We can either focus on design techniques such as the mantra swirl, column swirl, peacock swirl, textured tops, mica swirls, mica lines, layers, embeds and patterns or we can focus on formulating and how to formulate a soap from scratch looking in detail at the fatty acid profiles of each ingredients to understand how it will impact upon your recipe.

If you would like to do a full day advanced techniques course then we can spend 3 hours on design and 3 hours on formulating (£550).

Some students have an idea of starting a business and we can tailor the course to suit your business idea. For example if you are interested in using a particular ingredient to make soap, we can experiment with formulas and designs using that particular ingredient.
We can make soap using milk or beer which is an advanced technique not covered in our group sessions.

Please call or email Emma to discuss your requirements for a 121 Advanced Session - this course is only available for previous students that have completed either a 121 course or a group workshop with Soapology Studio as the basic knowledge of soapmaking will already need to be in place before starting an advanced techniques course.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
