I had an amazing experience at the Candle making course with Paula and the rest of the group! It was a very inviting atmosphere created by a fabulous and warm host, who paid great attention to detail. I learnt so much compared to another course I have previously undertaken and am sure this is exactly what I need to kick-start my candle making business! The course was worth every penny and I'll definitely be back for some of her others!
Only regret is not getting the recipe for the divine afternoon tea!

Response from Old Bexley Soap Co.:Thank you Stephanie for the review. I am really pleased you enjoyed the course and I wish you all the best in starting your candle business!. Paula
Paula is an excellent host and teacher. I learnt so much and had such fun. She made the day interesting and fun. I learnt a lot about soap making and I came away with lots of information and the 9 soaps that I made on the day that I can leave to cure for the next 8 weeks. I am looking forward to trying them. The afternoon tea was amazing. I do recommend this course.

Response from Old Bexley Soap Co.:Hi Ann, thank you for your feedback. I am so glad you enjoyed the course, it was a fun day.
This was an absolutely amazing class. I learnt so much and had the best time. Came away with 8 beautiful soaps which smell divine and I cannot wait to use them after they have cured! Paula is so friendly, professional and knowledgeable and she even provides a delicious afternoon tea, where she made some awesome vegan scones :) I cannot wait to use my new knowledge to start making my own soaps at home. I recommend this course to anyone looking to make soaps for fun, for friends/family or even for a business! Thank you Paula 😊

Response from Old Bexley Soap Co.:Thank you very much for the review. Your soaps looked beautiful, so glad you enjoyed the course. Paula
Excellent introduction to candle making. We had a complete understanding of the process and what is needed to get the candles out there as a small business. Paula is an excellent host and the afternoon tea is just the cherry on the cake for a great experience.

If you are after a soap making workshop, that will give you in-depth information, in a friendly environment, with an amazing host, this is the course for you!!
Paula is very welcoming and makes all the information & techniques really easy to understand. You will leave the workshop glowing with confidence that you can indeed create amazing soap on you own!
Thanks again Paula!

Response from Old Bexley Soap Co.:Thank you Colette, great to meet you. I really enjoyed pouring that lovey pink and grey soap together, it looked beautiful! Xx
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.

Response from Old Bexley Soap Co.:Thank you Jacqui, your charcoal soap with rose buds looked great!
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
Emma - - #26306
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.

Response from Old Bexley Soap Co.:Thank you Laura. I very much enjoyed teaching your lovely family!
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).
Margaret Fasanya - - #25733
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.
Emine Tahir - - #25727
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!
Claire - - #25640
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!
Lauren - - #25648
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.
Kay - - #25647
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. :)
