Students and their soap

About the Course

Would you like to learn a great, practical new skill? Learn to make traditional cold process, unique hot process soap or both and gain the knowledge and confidence to continue your soap making journey at home. Plus take home over 2kg of soap you have made yourself.

Your course will be held with me, Keri, award winning soap maker and founder of The Dog and I. You will be able to choose whether to make soap for yourself or alternatively use my award winning recipe to make soap for your dog.

You will learn the science behind the soap and how to use it. Information about the different butters and oils you will be using and how they affect your finished soap. How to use lye safely and what equipment you need.

An insight into using essential oils in your soaps and advice about how to create your own blends.

An introduction to using natural ingredients such as clays to colour your soap.

You will watch a demo of how to make your hot or cold process soap and then go on to make your own batch of palm oil free soap using a selections of essential oils and botanicals of your choice. I will be on hand throughout out to offer advice and guidance. You are free to choose whether to make soap for yourself or your dog on the day. Either way your workshop notes will include recipes for both so you can continue your soap making journey at home.

New dates will be released once COVID 19 rules allow.

If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

You will be welcomed with a tea, coffee and of course cake!
Every participant will receive a comprehensive workbook covering everything you need to make both cold and hot process soap plus useful resources.

You will take home approximately 2 x 1200g of soap you have made. The cost to buy this volume of ready made soap would be £90 making this a great value workshop.

You will also be able to purchase sufficient ingredients on the day to make another batch of soap at home if you have caught the soap making bug.

And finally you will be invited to join my dedicated facebook group where I will always be on hand to answer any questions and give advice. You will also be encouraged to share your soap making success stories when you are back home. I am a firm believer in helping you to succeed and this is why you have my continued support on line to ensure you have the confidence and ability to continue your soap making at home.

Such a lovely way to spend a day, i can't recommend it enough. Keri is so informative and nothing is too much trouble.

The aromas floating around the room are amazing and the whole process is fascinating. There's a lot more to soap making than you think, yet not so much that puts you off from wanting to carry on making your own when you get home. Keri makes this all possible should you want to. I've never known any other course to provide such a fantastic after care policy. If you've got a question, Keri is there to answer it and supports you through your soap making adventure. She's incredibly hard working and passionate about her business ethics.

A transparent, honest exciting course that's good value for money and you come away with an end product you'll truly be proud of.

Dorset is around 3½/4 hrs away for us, but that doesn't put us off, we simply make a weekend of it and incorporate lots of other lovely experiences into it while we're there!

Highly recommend
