A highly recommend course & a super day. Paula shares her expert knowledge in a calming, very friendly atmosphere, with step by step support throughout. We were given a pack containing concise information about the whole process of soap making, which includes all the legal aspects of selling soaps, websites to get us started on our own processes. A delicious homemade afternoon tea was most welcome while we waited for our soaps to set. An altogether first class experience. Thank you Paula for a lovely day.

I never imagined that candle making could be so exciting and challenging, the course is full of information and helpful tips.
Paula is clearly very knowledgeable and passionate about the whole process of creating the candles. I was very pleased with the end product which smelt lovely when I lit it. I'd definitely recommend this course and the candles as a product.

Well what a fabulous day I’ve had making soap with Paula in her beautiful home. I was so lucky to have received this as a gift from my friends. Paula is a fantastic teacher and so knowledgable and patient. She made my day so enjoyable and fun. She is also a great hostess. I felt so welcome and comfortable. Thank you Paula I’ll be back for the candle making X

Response from Old Bexley Soap Co.:Thank you so much, It was great to meet you and your friend Eli.
I just have to say I loved the course, it was amazing I learnt so much, I feel 10 times more confident about making my own candles. Well worth the money. Emma

Response from Old Bexley Soap Co.:Thanks Emma, keep practising and testing and you will be fine. Good luck 😃. Paula
I booked this course as a birthday treat for my mum, as she loves hand made soaps. The course far exceeded our expectations. Paula welcomed us into her beautiful home and gave us a very informative and practical introduction to soap making. We then moved onto the practical section of the course. This was great fun, and we particularly enjoyed choosing which oils to fragrance our soaps with.
We were then treated to a delicious afternoon tea, before leaving with our big box of fabulous soaps. Despite being a complete novice I now feel confident to have a go at making more soaps at home.
I would thoroughly recommend this course. Thank you Paula.

A very well organised candle making course with a first class afternoon tea! The course is well prepared, carefully resourced and very inspiring. I had the most relaxing day learning a new skill with a lovely group. I can´t wait to get started at home. Thank you.

Response from Old Bexley Soap Co.:Thank you so much Helen. Good luck with those candles for Christmas!. Xx Paula
This is the most enjoyable craft course I have ever been. Paula was so attentive, knowledgeable and made us feel so welcome in her beautiful home. I was the most talkative of the bunch as I was on the course purposely to extend my range of 100% Natural Skin care products. Surprisingly she was very patient with me as I was asking her loads of question. We did overrun on the course, but Paula didn't mind and we had a wonderful afternoon together, swapping with each other our beautiful soap creation.
I will highly recommend this course both for practicality, knowledge and warm atmosphere and spending afternoon with our beautiful, knowledgeable host. Well done Paula (Although I was calling you Pauline throughout the day, but you didn't mind).

Response from Old Bexley Soap Co.:Hi Margaret, thank you so much for your kind words. I wish you all the best for your business, you have great enthusiasm, I loved your products. Paula
My husband and I had a fabulous time with Paula on her soap making course. Nothing was too much trouble! She coped affably and patiently with all our enthusiastic questions and has definitely sparked an interest in a new skill for us. She gave us the confidence and extensive information for us to carry on soap making at home. I would thoroughly recommend this course and look forward to also attending her candle making course. The lovely tea was a pleasurable bonus.

Response from Old Bexley Soap Co.:Hi Emine, it was such a pleasure to have you here. When I retire I’d like to do the same as you and Ibrahim and enjoy learning new skills together. I look forward to seeing you next year and make candles. Paula
I loved the course and I feel confident now to make my own soap!
Paula is a very knowledgeable instructor and her calmness and encouragement really made for a lovely learning environment. Thank you so much!
All best wishes. Teresa

Excellent course from Paula, she is so knowledgeable and such an experienced tutor!
I had a great day with a lovely group learning everything I needed to know to start my soap making business, I gained confidence and Paula supported me in my learning all day. She is very friendly, approachable and thorough and explains everything in a way that is easy to understand. I really enjoyed the whole day, and Paula’s afternoon tea was the icing on the cake! Great value for money, highly recommended. Thanks Paula!

Response from Old Bexley Soap Co.:Thanks Clare! Keep me posted on your progress
If you are serious about candle making look no further, what an experience. I arrived with no knowledge or experience on candle making and came out with a wealth of information and very confident I can make my own candles and start my little candle business.
I would recommend this course 100%.
The afternoon tea we enjoyed at the end was better than most afternoon teas I have tried in London!

Response from Old Bexley Soap Co.:Thanks Lauren, very pleased you enjoyed my scones so much :)
Thank you so much for a wonderful time - your level of organisation, preparation and welcome were well above lots of previous courses i've been on - the tea was such a wonderful thing and so beautifully served.
I very much enjoyed myself and am pleased with my final product. I will definitely be coming on a candle making workshops sometime next year.

Response from Old Bexley Soap Co.:Thank you Kay, see you soon in the candle making course!
I have been wanting to do a candle making course for a while and found this course in Bexley with Paula as the host. She was very friendly and welcoming, as the course is at her home. I have learnt so much from this course and feel much more confident knowing how to make a good and safe candle. Paula gave us a pack to take home which included information for selling candles as well as suppliers lists and how to make the candles we had made on the course. I had a great day and it was nice to meet new people as well. The afternoon tea was lovely and Paula was more than happy to keep making us all tea, coffees etc through out the course. I will definitely recommend this course to anyone who wanted to learn about candles. I am looking forward to starting my journey in candle making. :)

A great morning / afternoon making soap with the very lovely Paula.
Small group size giving us all enough attention and a wonderful afternoon tea too.
Fabulous day and i will be coming back to make candles.

Response from Old Bexley Soap Co.:Thank you Teresa, see you soon.
What a fantastic soap making course. From start to finish, in a beautiful setting, Paula delivers the course in a knowledgeable and friendly manner. You learn the science and art of making soaps and come away with at least 8 bars of your own soap. Adding in afternoon tea makes it a very special session and you don’t go home hungry. Thank you for your hospitality and having me! x

This is the second of Paula's courses I have attended (the first was the soap making which I really enjoyed). Paula is an excellent host and teacher.
The candle making process was explained really well with lots of information re safety, regulations, suppliers etc given.
I really enjoyed making the candles to take home, they look and smell beautiful. Am now looking forward to making my own soy candles.
I totally recommend Paula's courses 100%.
Julie - - #24852
Response from Old Bexley Soap Co.:Thank you Julie! Such a pleasure to see you both here again.
This is an excellent course and I would certainly recommend it to anyone wanting to learn how to make soap. Paula is a very knowledgable and friendly tutor. She makes you feel very welcome indeed. The course is very comprehensive and you leave feeling confident that you can go home and safely make your own soap bars.
There’s also a delicious homemade spread waiting for you at the end of the session, which you’ll be ready for!

Response from Old Bexley Soap Co.:Thank you Lucy, so happy you enjoyed it
I have made two batches of soap since attending Paula's soap making course two weeks ago. She was very knowledgeable and a great tutor so that making my own with her instructions and advice was not too difficult.
I thoroughly recommend this course and it is also very easy to get to by train.
Deborah de souza - - #24705
Response from Old Bexley Soap Co.:Thank you. I’m happy to see your already making your own soap at home, brilliant!
My daughter and I attended Paula's candle making course recently as we both love candles and thought it would be a nice thing to do. What a lovely way to spend 4 hours on a Saturday! Paula provided all of the equipment, ingredients and plenty of information plus lots of tips for making the perfect candle. The day was well paced and relaxed and the afternoon tea was wonderful! I would definitely recommend Paula and this course and look forward to attending other workshops in the future.
