Response from Ruth Romano:Thanks for the recommendation Verna and thanks for joining my online class. Best of luck with your plans!
I thoroughly enjoyed this course with Ruth and the other soap-making enthusiasts on the day!
It was a very detailed and instructive day and having the practical soap making really does make you feel more confident in handling the lye and other ingredients.
I made lots of notes so I'm excited about buying the equipment and making my first batch of soap very soon. I look forward to joining Ruth again on the business course to complete my training.

Response from Ruth Romano:Thanks for your review Mandy. I am very pleased that you enjoyed the day and it's great to hear that you are now more confident. I will look forward to seeing you again!
Prior to this course, I had never made cold process soap before and the thought of using lye without any guidance was a bit daunting, so I decided to book this course to build my confidence.
We began the day with some history of soap making, a demonstration, followed by two practical sessions, all of which were well thought out, engaging and informative and Ruth delivered them seamlessly.
Throughout the practical we were given clear instructions and recipes to follow and Ruth was on hand to answer any queries of questions, should they arise!
I thoroughly enjoyed the day and have put my new skills to the test by producing my first batch of CP Soap at home....Yippee!!
I would like to say a big thank you to Ruth, this course not only gave me the confidence to start my own soapy journey it has also inspired me to look at other natural, homemade products- I'm looking forward to the Natural Skincare Course course this summer!

Excellent business course on what you need to know and do about starting a successful hand made soap business. Ruth is very helpful and easy to talk to and has a lot of experience in making soap and running a business.

Response from Ruth Romano:Thanks for your review Roger. It was great to meet you and I wish you all the best with your plans going forward!
I suffer from very sensitive skin, so had been looking into making my own natural soap for a while but always felt confused when looking at techniques or recipes online. This course explained the process in a really straightforward and engaging way and gave me the confidence to go home and try it out myself. Ruth was really friendly and approachable and it's clear she has a real passion for her craft. I also liked how she recommended equipment to purchase and suggested affordable alternatives to some of the products you see online.
Thanks Ruth for a really fun and interesting day!

Response from Ruth Romano:Thanks for your review Rowan. I am really pleased you are now confident to go forth and create your own soap - enjoy making soap!
I thoroughly enjoyed this course, it was a Christmas present to myself and a much needed day of me time. Left feeling very inspired, keen to get started making beautiful natural products to share with friends, then consider selling if successful! Looking forward to another course of body butters etc soon. Instructions clearly given, great hands on help and advice, loads of goodies to take home all on a friendly relaxed environment. Would recommend to all, thank you!

Response from Ruth Romano:Thanks very much for your recommendation Caroline. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your present! :)
I had an amazing day with Ruth learning how to make soap, Ruth is knowledgable and shares her wisdom freely. I was a bit intimidated beforehand at the thought of maths and chemistry but Ruth explains the whole process in such an easy way and it’s great fun making your own combinations. Thank you for such a wonderful day!
Emma Farragher - - #28927

Just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your cold process soap class on Saturday! I thoroughly enjoyed it and can't wait to have a go at home now. I met a lovely bunch of ladies and hopefully I may see them again on some other courses in the near future. Happy "soaping" everyone. Thanks again Ruth! Much appreciated. x

Brilliant course! Really relaxed atmosphere and we made lots of lovely natural skincare products to take home. Ruth is very approachable and down to earth - plenty of opportunities to ask questions to further knowledge. A great way to spend a Saturday!

Response from Ruth Romano:Thanks for your recommendation Nathalie - enjoy your products!
Very enjoyable course, was great to have the opportunity to do 2 soap batches and ask lots of questions. Excellent course and good location - walking distance from train station. Thank you Ruth
Alison - - #28036
Response from Ruth Romano:Thanks Alison, I am really pleased you enjoyed the day!
What a lovely day! Ruth was really clear in explaining the process - which is quite scientific really - and brought a very practical and achievable feel to the whole day. We teamed up in pairs and made 2 batches of soap/shampoo bars each. This hands on approach made me feel that I really understand the process and I am very keen to have a go at home now! Great equipment, lovely ideas for soaps and a really useful handout which I will be using soon for my first solo attempt! The takeaway box was also great, even down to the very thoughtful touch of providing us with the box itself, and I am really looking forward to using the soaps we made.
Nicola Tratalos - - #27923
Response from Ruth Romano:Thank you Nicola - enjoy your takeaway soap selection! :)
I thoroughly enjoyed the soap making course. Ruth is an inspirational tutor, passionate about using natural ingredients on our skin. The course was very well organised, I attended alone and everyone was so friendly, the soap making was fun and we achieved a lot in one day, taking home a whole collection of lovely smelling soaps and shampoo bars. Ruth was hands on with the tuition and answered any questions any of us had - she is extremely knowledgeable about her craft. I would highly recommend the course, either go alone or book as a group with friends, you will enjoy.
Jane Ryan - - #27764
Response from Ruth Romano:Thanks for your recommendation. Jane I am really pleased that you enjoyed my course!
The course was great and fun.
It started with the theory part and then the practical sessions,
Ruth demonstrated and explained each step very clearly and it's easy to remember.
It's a very good course for a beginner like me who has never made soap before, nor have any knowledge about it.
We can also bring our fresh made soap home after the course which makes the day it even better!
Paula Lo - - #27710
Response from Ruth Romano:Thanks for your review Paula I am glad you had fun!
Well-paced course. After a little bit of theory, we all had an opportunity to make a variety of soaps and shampoo bars, which were shared out at the end so we everyone took home one of each type. I can't wait for the soap to cure, so I can try it.
Ruth explained and demonstrated the process very well and we received a step-by-step handout so we can make our own soap.
The location in Wilmslow is good, easy to find, with limited on-site parking but public parking is within easy walking distance.
Jane - - #27674
Response from Ruth Romano:Thanks for your review Jane. I am so pleased that you enjoyed the day!
Thoroughly enjoyed Ruth's soap making course in Wilmslow- it was very informative and the practical sessions were fun, with lots of help on hand from Ruth, and there was a really nice relaxed vibe. Just ordered some equipment and now feel confident about having a go myself- thanks Ruth!
Jenny Galloway - - #27144

I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of the course. Ruth made soap making fun and took the fear away from making the lye. I can’t wait to do the business course next
