What a lovely course this was. Sharon was a very good tutor. I came away with a lot of information. Everyone on the course was very friendly. Class size was just right. And the afternoon tea finished the day off very well.

Really interesting and practical course, learned a lot about soap making and the history of it. Learned about a few different techniques too with swirls, layers, adding other ingredients on the top etc.
Would highly recommend this course and the Yorkshire tea was an added bonus :0) great warm scones with jam and cream and I loved the prawn sarnies A+++++
Please do a shampoo bar course and a bath bomb one soon xx

Sharon’s informative and interesting approach made for a really enjoyable day.
We learned the basic soap making and then applied our own choice of colour and aroma from a wide choice.
Lovely lunch provided - It was a busy day and we had lots of soap to take home.
All round it was a good day.

Thank you Sharon, for a very interesting day.
Excellent venue, lovely lunch, and a great atmosphere, totally conducive to learning. I've just arrived home after an evening meal, and the house smells wonderful. I can't wait to slice my soap. I'm already looking forward to making my next batch of soap, and experimenting.
Thanks again, Christine.
