About the Course
Learn to make 100% natural palm oil free soap. You will never look at another High Street brand again, and its a lot easier than you might think!
Using the cold processed traditional method of soap making...a lot of whisking....Christine will take you through the steps, and by the end of the session, you will have made for yourself a kilo of soap (10 chunky bars!). These will be sent on to you (because they take 24 hours to solidify), at no extra cost, . On receipt of the soap it needs a further 3-4 weeks to 'cure', i.e, be ready to use, so bear in mind if you want to make it for a special occasion.
Christine Keeley runs Hogwash Soap, and has been making cold processed soap for many years, for other soap companies and now in her own business.
The soap making courses are held currently at The Plough Arts Centre in Great Torrington, North Devon. Torrington is a beautiful little town nestled between green fields and unspoilt common land with a multitude of stunning walks. The coastline is also nearby. A great place come for a course and stay the weekend!
