Sip & Soap: a fun way to learn how to make your own soap
On this fun, Sip & Soap class you will learn how to make your own organic, 'melt and pour' mini-soaps using an organic, vegan glycerine base while sipping a complimentary glass of fizz (or wine if you prefer!). Jenny from The Scottish Soapworks will share the benefits of the essential oils she uses in her tried and tested recipe, and show you how to make your own soap using a simple method, and affordable equipment. The Arienas Collective workshops, courses and events are run from a supportive and welcoming home-based environment within a Georgian mews home in Edinburgh’s City Centre New Town. We invite you to join us, leave any day-to-day worries behind, and immerse yourself in being creative. Spaces on our workshops and courses are limited so that our creative team of artists and makers can offer you the hands-on help and support you need to make the most of your time with us. Private workshop bookings Most of our workshops are also available to book for small private get-togethers; themed wedding and birthday celebrations; corporate team building and well-being purposes; and as in-store retail events. For larger groups, many of our workshops can be brought to a location of your choice. Age restrictions Our workshops are planned with adults in mind. Many are suitable for teenagers, but some may require under 16s to be accompanied for insurance purposes. Please check with us before booking.
What's included in the price?
All materials are included, and a non-alcoholic drink option provided. You will take home all the soap shapes you make on the night - and, if you can bear to part with them, they make great wee gifts too! All the equipment and materials you will need are included in the price, unless stated otherwise, plus light refreshments (a selection of Shibui teas, coffee, hot chocolate, and sweet or savoury snacks). On full day workshops you are welcome to bring your own lunch to eat inside or out; or there are a wide range of independent sit-in or takeaway delis, cafés, and restaurants, plus supermarkets, within a 5-10 minute walk.
