Make your own completely natural handmade soap, from scratch! Using palm-free, plant-based oils and butters, you'll learn about saponification with natural lye. And, following one of our six gorgeous tried-and-tested recipes (five of which are vegan), you'll add natural ingredients including essential oils and plant additives to make your own soap loaf, which you'll take home to cut and cure (you'll be shown how). You'll also learn how to formulate your own blends, how to handle the materials safely and how to test your soap at all the relevant stages. The class takes about 2 hours, during which you'll make a soap loaf big enough to cut into at least 6 good-sized bars, and learn an addictive new craft that you'll love! :) Over-16s only, unless previously agreed by The Little Craftery (please contact us to discuss). Class times vary, please contact us to check the start time of your chosen date. Private classes (at a time and date to suit you) are available on request! Please get in touch to find out more. :)

What's included in the price?

All materials and use of necessary tools are included, as are hot drinks. You'll keep the soap you've made, along with an information booklet containing recipes and information on how to formulate your own recipes at home, and you'll also be given some litmus paper strips so you can test the PH level of your finished soap.
