About the Course

This workshop is designed for those just starting out with soap making, who are curious about how soap is made or who want to embark in a creative and useful hobby. Our workshop will teach you techniques that will help you make exquisite skincare products in your own home.

During the workshop you will be making your own soap and take some of it away with you to enjoy later.
We always like to use good quality vegetable oils which nourish the skin, as well as essential oils and herbs.
No animal products are used, so this is suitable for vegans.
We will go into detail about the soap making process and share our many years experience so you will always make a great batch of soap. I'll cover equipment, ingredients, and most importantly safety. Come learn how simple it is to make a fantastic bar of soap!

· the basics of how soap is made,
· the best ingredients to use,
· how long to cure it for,
· natural colours,

Roxana was the perfect teacher and answered any questions we asked and gave us very in depth take away notes. Learning to make the soap was fascinating and very exciting and looking forward to using it. It was a nice small group. Would highly recommend.

Honestly fantastic class. Roxana was so welcoming and really knows what she's talking about. Really appreciated her patience with us too as we had to reschedule on a few occasions to do the class but it was worth it in the end. Very straight forward, so easy to learn at least the basics to soap making, and the rest is experimenting really. We highly recommend this class.

I have enjoyed the evening learning the technique and theory about the soap making process. Roxana was very experienced and knowledgeable and I would recommend she is right tutor to learn from. The best part of the course was how important the health and safety was as I have young children and to keep the ingredients far from their reach. It's been an experience journey.

We had a great afternoon learning how to make soap. Roxana definitely showed us how easy the process is, and shared all her knowledge based upon her own experiences with making her own soap. The take home notes were a great addition, and it was great to be able to make the soap on the day to take home. We can’t wait to make our own!!

Had a very enjoyable experience, made better by the fact Roxana is very knowledgeable and experienced on the subject of soap making and is a lovely person too! A mixture of learning and practical engagement during the class, there was constant guidance throughout with the opportunity to ask lots of questions. As stated, good quality ingredients were used and choices to personalise the soap made. Very affordable and a great chance to learn the basics and an excellent foundation to do it yourself and start a new hobby. Would HIGHLY recommend.
