An excellent class for all budding soap makers. Paula is one of the best teachers I have come across and she is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of soap making and the beauty business. She challenged me to create my own recipes instead of following the trends and helped me to have a greater understanding of soap making as an art. I highly recommend this course, as its not only very fun and informative but the cream tea after is delicious! This course is worth every penny and I will be coming back for more at some point.

I thoroughly enjoyed my soap course with Paula. She is extremely helpful and explained everything so well with lots of useful information. It was a great experience and the day was fun. Thank you Paula
Response from Old Bexley Soap Co.:Thank you so much, so pleased you enjoyed the course. Take care. Paula
I had so much fun, Paula is so friendly, she made me fell incredibly comfortable, and delivered the lesson so well, very detailed explanations, and that is what I needed. I felt like I could ask anything and didn´t need to feel shy in case it was a silly question! It is not always the way the course is written, the person who delivers and the methods are important, so thank you so much Paula!
I was interested in doing this course for a while, and I am glad I did it. Paula explained the whole thing with a lot of interest and information. She was extremely happy to answer any questions we had. Thank you greatly and I appreciate all the others attending who were so friendly and helpful.
The event was very successful. It was a gift I bought for my husband and for the fussy man that he is, to say that this was his best ever gift, I think puts his experience in a nutshell. He was welcomed by the teacher and the other lovely ladies that joined him in that course. Said couldn't stop talking about all the things he learnt and how knowledgeable and experienced Paula, his teacher was.
I was not taking the class but was very much welcomed by the team and it felt so comfortable and relaxed.
Thank you for a lovely day. I would without hesitation recommend this course to anyone.
Brilliant course, I learned a lot! It was a small class with personalised attention. Our lovely teacher Paula guided us through the basics of candle making in a fun and accessible way. We all received a booklet to take away with a lot of information to continue making candles at home. Thoroughly recommend this course for anyone interested in discovering candle making.
Small, friendly, fun, and informative (plus there were delicious scones made vegan just for me which was much appreciated). The atmosphere was really relaxed and it was great fun experimenting with smells. Lots of information provided for those who wanted to add reed diffusers to their business proposition on how to do that, and lots of time for playing and smelling too. I really enjoyed my course and feel confident to go make loads of reed diffusers and home smells on my own.
What an amazing day! Paula is an excellent teacher, and very friendly as well. All the materials supplied were top quality, and it was altogether a great experience. Relaxing, entertaining and I learnt so much about candle making.
I really enjoyed it!
Paula is amazing and a wonderful trainer. She covered everything and guided us through the whole process.
Response from Old Bexley Soap Co.:Thank you Larisa, so pleased to hear you enjoyed the course. xx Paula
Really enjoyed the course. Paula makes it easy to understand and no pressure.
And friendly environment.
Response from Old Bexley Soap Co.:Thank you Mwansa, so lovely meeting you on the course!
We loved the private candle making class, Paula was extremely knowledgeable and a highly skilled candlemaker. The class went beyond candle making into aspects of starting a business and selling candles also, super helpful and lots of fun! Really recommend this class and Paula highly.
My Mum and I thoroughly enjoyed the reed diffuser workshop, Paula is so welcoming and friendly, she explains everything very clearly and we are both delighted with the diffuser we each made, and feel confident to make more at home! The drinks and nibbles were also lovely!
Response from Old Bexley Soap Co.:Thanks Emma, I'm glad you and your mum enjoyed the workshop and to hear you are now confident to make some more at home!. Paula
This course goes beyond candle making. It teaches you all you need to know to become a competent candle maker. I was looking at courses for ages and so glad I found this one. Thank you Paula, you are a star!
I attended Paula's Candle Making Course for beginners on the 6th November, and loved every minute of it! Paula is extremely knowledgeable, approachable, and has an excellent teaching manner. The quality of the products supplied for our use, and quality of what we produced, were excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed the day, finished off with a lovely afternoon tea, and I will most definitely be booking another course in the new year.
I attended the beginners candle making workshop with Paula. I’m so glad I choose Old Bexley Soap Co. The day was fun, well structured and I learnt so much. I went away inspired and with the confidence to try making my own candles at home. Paula is very knowledgeable and passionate and was more than happy to pass this on to her students. The homemade scones were divine.
The workshop was really fun and helpful. Paula is a great person and teacher. We recommend her courses to whoever is interested in furthering her knowledge in candle making. I took the course from Romania.
If I could leave a rating of 11 out of ten I would do so. From the moment I walked in to the course I found Paula warm and engaging. She has instilled such confidence that I am planning to make my first batch of soap this week at home.I have to mention the attention to detail that was given to this course...it was really was thorough and most definitely value for money.
Absolutely fascinating course delivered by a lovely lady who is clearly passionate about what she does. Explained every element of candle making right from starting out as a beginner up to if you are considering developing it into a business. Very well thought out day explaining why the individual elements are so important and recommendations of where to buy materials from. Also included a delicious lunch and afternoon tea and catered for vegans.
OMG, I can’t recommend this course enough. Whether you are interested in just trying soap making or if you are serious about it this course is perfect. Paula brings a great combination of theory and practice in this 5hr programme. The price is amazing and I couldn’t find anything like it online. I now feel super confident I can try it by myself. Also, you get to spend a great and relaxing day. I’m so happy I found this course. I’m definitely coming back for others. Thanks, Paula.
Thank you Paula for a very enjoyable and informative session. Lots of practical tips, and the satisfaction of creating a lasting reminder. I am so proud of my reed diffuser!
Response from Old Bexley Soap Co.:Thank you so much Isabel, so pleased you enjoyed the workshop!
