Introduction to Soap Making with Jodee Best


About the Course

In what might just turn out to be an addictive new craft—this course will cover the basics of cold process soap-making for the beginner.

Starting with a presentation of the basic equipment needed (most of which may already be found in the kitchen) and how to safely handle caustic substances, we introduce the basic ingredients and techniques needed to make our first batch of soap. Much like making a cake, we find out how easy and fun it is to make soap, and how perfect homemade soap is for gifting to family and friends.

At the end of the course, we will be able to take home our first batch to complete the “curing process” (which should be firm enough to unmold after 24-36 hours).

Course Highlights
• Friendly, comfortable and well lit environment
• Small group to enable individual tuition
• All tools and materials/equipment and ingredients are provided
• Generous table space
• Clear information and examples as well as a resource guide to take home
• Suitable for ages 15 and upwards

The course focus is always on fun and friendly creativity with lots of personal tuition.

You don’t need to bring anything with you as all tools ingredients and safety equipment will be provided.

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?

This course cost includes ingredients, use of safety gear and tools throughout.

Hot and cold refreshments will be provided before and after the course, although once the discussion ends and combination of ingredients begins, we will be focused on our soap making
