About the Course
Most beginner level melt and pour soap workshops merely cover colouring and scenting of soap bases. Here at Go Create we've created an extreme version: to push melt and pour to its limits. We'll cover melt and pour from all angles to ensure you have a good understanding of soap making basics and how to exploit melt and pour to its potential. During the workshop you'll make approximately 4 soap samples. But be warned, some may look and smell too good to use.
Our fun 1 day soap making is suitable for absolute beginners who wish to be impressed. During this beginner level workshop we'll explain traditional soap making processes and how this relates to melt and pour bases. We'll then focus on exploiting the full potential of melt and pour whilst creating some exciting makes.

A brief overview of traditional soap making
NB This workshop is suitable for vegetarians, vegans and those who want it all. No this does not mean we expect you to eat your soap samples. It simply means that participants can be selective about the soap bases and ingredients that they use. We can help you make those choices on the day .
Expect to take home an exciting selection of soaps including a layered soap, a gardeners scrub, a moisturising soap plus some fun or more advanced soaps which exploit the potential of melt and pour.
