Learn to make natural, hot processed, handmade soap with The Soap Coach from the comfort of your own home with an informal, online group zoom class.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
Lasting approximately 90 minutes you will be able to watch me explain the process and then demonstrate how to make a batch of soap from scratch as well as have the opportunity to ask as many questions as you need to . And most importantly you are invited to join my students only facebook group where I am on hand to answer questions that may crop up when you make your own soap and invariably they will.
Hot process is the method I use to make my award winning dog soaps. It gives a rustic looking soap and is relatively simple to achieve with less potential difficulties than cold process soap making. It does have limitations however in that it is harder to create nice patterns and swirls of different colours.
Although I will be making dog soaps this process is the same regardless of the recipe and the dog soap recipe can easily be tweaked to make it more luxurious for humans.
The 90 minute beginner workshops explain absolutely everything you need to know to make that first batch of soap. I cover a little of the science (not boring I promise) equipment, some of the different butters and oils that can be used and how that impacts on your soap, health and safety ( slightly boring but vital!) I will also be talking about using natural colourants and essential oils in soap making.
This is a watch and learn tutorial. Think Jamie Olive style demo. Just bring yourself and a pen and paper.
To access the course you will need

Classes will be a group zoom giving you the opportunity to learn from everyone else's questions too and interact with fellow soap lovers.
Video is not a requirement, you can turn your video and microphone off when entering the call if you do not want to be visible. I won't be offended I promise and you can still ask questions by typing in the chat.
Following on from the tutorial you will be able to access my private facebook support group where I will be on hand to offer any additional support you may need and answer questions. I also love it when you share your soap making pictures with the rest of us too.
