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, drink copious amounts of tea (or coffee), eat plenty of biscuits, and learn an addictive new craft that you'll love! :)
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
All materials and use of necessary tools are included, as are hot drinks and snacks. You'll keep the soap you've made, along with an information booklet including all 6 recipes and information on how to formulate your own recipes at home.
