What's included in the price?
All equipment and materials are included. We also include a delicious afternoon tea style lunch with sandwiches and cake all served vintage style and refreshments throughout the day.
A great introduction into making soaps, bath salts and body butters. I left the course with products I had made and was inspired to learn more about making my own soaps, bath salts and body butters at home. As a result, my friends and family all received 'zero plastic' hand made toiletries this Xmas. Also, lunch was fabulous, thank you.

Such a cute little venue. Arrived to teas and coffees and a table laid out so beautifully ready for our afternoon tea later.
The group was great, Julie and Janet got us all settled in and we were all chatting together in no time. Plenty of time was given for making each product and Julie was friendly, knowledgeable and happy to take questions. Everything was easy enough to make - no prior skills needed, just an interest. We all made one of everything so could pick out own scents/colours for each product. I came home with loads of new knowledge and a surprisingly large amount of each product (would have cost me a fortune for similar in a certain natural high street cosmetics store)!
The afternoon tea was divine, our requests were catered for. Every detail had been thought of, everything ran smoothly and it was a brilliant day.
The cost felt a bit of a stretch for my budget, but I really wanted to do it, so i went for it. So glad i did! When you add up the skills learnt to make future products, the afternoon tea, the fun had and the cost of the products you come away with - worth every penny and then some! Excellent value, excellent time had and i can't wait for my ingredients to arrive so i can start playing (oops I mean making) at home. I would be delighted to recommend this to anyone & everyone! Thank you!

From walking through the door. I knew we we going to have a great day. Julie is so knowledgeable, funny and very welcoming. I had already been making candles, but the information given and the ideas were very useful. The afternoon tea was delicious. The people who we met on the day made it a brilliant day. I will definitely be booking on some more courses.

Well done crafters cottage team, what a excellent day, from the greeting at 10.30 to the farewells at 16.00, the day whizzed past. We made so many products, all carefully explained and individual help and assistance where needed, we all came away with professional looking bathing products.
Julie followed up the day with the relevant paperwork and recipes, a better idea than handing them out on the day.
I will certainly book some of the other courses on offer, at this amazing, quintessentially English venue, with its lovely afternoon tea.

I came with my Mum and we had a really lovely day. The cottage is just perfect with a really friendly atmosphere. The soap making (and all the other things) were really fun to do with fantastic looking results. The afternoon tea was lovely - so much food and really nice. I couldn't fault the course and would highly recommend it.

I cannot say enough how pleasant this workshop was!!!! I really enjoyed it !! learned sooo much in such a short amount of time.
It was in a relaxed and very friendly atmosphere. I will go all the way up North from London again to have a workshop with Julie and Janet as I really enjoyed every minute. If you want to learn, have fun and have a great afternoon tea then go for it! you won’t regret it!!!!

The course was a birthday present from my daughter Rosanna, and its one of the best presents in my long life.
Julie welcomed us and we were soon making soaps, body butters and all the other lovely products. Julie was very generous with her knowledge and her time and was totally focused on making the day an interesting and productive one, whilst it was still relaxing and fun.
We also enjoyed wonderful food at lunchtime and came home with some wonderful products.
I feel I have been given a lot of information and learned new skills that will enable me to pursue this further .
I definitely hope to come on another course.
Thank you from Joan

Wow - absolutely brilliant! Knowledgeable, informative, friendly. Everyone was supported to make beautiful products that smell and look spectacular, plus a wonderfully presented afternoon tea. Both myself and my friend will be booking again.
Thank you so much. We had a great, relaxing and enjoyable time.

Had an amazing day at this workshop. We made a lot of different things. Soap, body butter, bath salts, body scrub, lip scrub and bath bombs. Julie who ran the course was fantastic, helping us experiment with different scents and ingredients. The course was very informative and a lot of fun. I can't wait to get experimenting at home. The day included afternoon tea which was great. It was an intimate group which was nice as you could mingle with the rest of the group and chat about what each of you are doing.
All in all the day was great, worth every penny.

I had a great day today and learned a lot. I came home with a massive piece of soap, body butter, body scrub, bath salts and lip scrub. My house now smells delicious. The workshop itself was fun, entertaining and informative. Time flew by. Money well spent!

I had a fabulous day on this course, we made lots of lovely products and were able to experiment with lots of different colours, scents and textures, all under the guidance of julie. It was fun and informative, I had been looking forward to the day and it did not disappoint. Lunch was lovely, all dietary needs were taken care of. Well worth it!! Well done Julie.

Today my daughter and I had an amazing day on this workshop. Julie was really welcoming and we instantly felt at ease. The course content was great, we learned lots about how to make lots of products and went home with lots of deliciously scented goodies. Julie was a great teacher, she was very knowledgeable, patient and interesting. She was really approachable and ready to help and advise whenever needed. We were looked after really well and the lunch was lovely. Julie had gone out of her way to accommodate for a vegan and gluten free diet for people on the workshop.
It was a thoroughly enjoyable day, great value for money and I highly recommend it.
