I attended Ruth's soap making course and thoroughly enjoyed the day. The course content was great for hands on soap making and I learnt a great deal . Ruth is a great teacher and answered all my questions, she really knows her soaps. I would recommend this course and hoping Ruth will run other classes.
Thanks Ruth for a great day.

A very enjoyable day .
I found the course very well organised . It was wonderful to have hands on experience in making the soap . The group was the right size enabling Ruth to give the necessary help when required.I would certainly recommend the course.
My home is smelling amazing from the assortment of soaps I brought home.
I hope she puts on an advance course in the future.

Thank you Ruth for a lovely day on Saturday, I really enjoyed the soap making and the time flew by. You are obviously very experienced and passionate about your craft, your instructions were clear, everything was very organised and the ingredients fabulous. I had such a good time meeting like minded people and making soap that looked good enough to eat. Good venue and lunch included, I would certainly recommend your course to anyone else.

A lovely, enjoyable day with lots of hands on experience. I came away feeling confidant enough to make my own soap and start experimenting. Ruth has a wealth of experience that she is able to share. A very welcoming and calm environment that I would recommend to anyone thinking about taking up soap making!

if you want to learn how to make the real thing then go on Ruth Romano's soap making course what I liked about the day was the ingredients used for the soaps were ethical and natural using essential oils and butters and oils that were a lovely mix! the course is very 'hands on' and gives you the confidence to really have a go and leave the day feeling you could 'make soap' I have been on many courses where I have done the learning and still not had confidence to do it we had lots on fun in the process doing it too! thanks Ruth, Pippa & Debra x

I recommend this course 100%. Ruth is a true ambassador for soap making and so passionate about her craft. You cannot fail to walk away feeling inspired and more knowledgable. The day was well structured, organised and in a great location. We learnt about the history of soap making and information on the current cold process used in hand made soap today. There was plenty of opportunity for hands on practical experience and for me this was very exciting. There were also 3 lovely ladies in addition to me on the course and we all had a fab time. At the end of the day we took away our creations which I have to say looked great. Thanks Ruth - you are an inspiration.

A fun and very informative course with lots of hands-on experience. Highly recommended. It was great to have an understanding of the history as well as the technical aspects to soap-making before we started and Ruth was very patient and clear in her instructions once she let us loose with the ingredients! Keeping the numbers small helped as we were able to try our hand at everything and Ruth was able to move between the groups to assist when we needed it.
It truly is amazing just what you can put into a soap to make it personal and fragranced just how you like. We made several different varieties and then shared them between us at the end of the day so we all had a bit of everything. Just waiting for them to finish 'setting' now so I can start using them. Thanks again for a lovely day, Ruth, and to Paul for our lunch!

Thank you Ruth for teaching me how to make soap! Loved everything about this course - well organised, excellent clear tuition, lovely venue with space and natural light, delicious lunch, met some lovely people and came away with lots of lovely soap, instructions to use at home and the confidence to carry on making (I am busy collecting my supplies and deciding on which recipes to try next!)
I would highly recommend this course, so glad I attended.

I attended Ruth's soap making workshop on 8th March and thoroughly enjoyed it. Because she limited the number of participants Ruth was able to help us as and when we needed help. It was so well organised and she provided everything we needed, including a printed handout of instructions and a delicious lunch. If you are wondering whether you should try one of Ruth's workshops I think you will love it. I learnt so much and now feel confident that I can continue making soaps at home without any help.
