Had a fabulous day with Martin making soap (this was my second visit...I loved it so much I brought my daughter and her boyfriend back!)
Martin explained everything very clearly, but made sure we did all the making ourselves so that we can make more soap at home for ourselves. Great fun choosing our botanicals and essential oils to personalise our soap loaves.
Would definitely recommend Stable House and Martin & Dawn if you're thinking of learning how to make soap. You won't regret it!
