I attended the Soap Making course on Saturday 21st July - not really knowing what to expect - it was fantastic. I learnt so much and I came away with soap I and my pers made - how wonderful is that? Also everything is 100% natural so even I can use it.
Thanks Ruth for making this course well worth the trip.

Response from Ruth Romano:Thanks for your review Dawn. Glad to hear that my course was worth the trip!
I am so glad I did the 1-2-1 business course with Ruth. Ruth made it interesting and gave me a wealth of information and resources to refer to after the course. It was relaxed and comfortable, made sense of a lot of the red tape and I feel it was money well spent.
I highly recommend this course if you are thinking of turning your hobby into a business
Thank you Ruth!

I attended Ruths course on 23rd June in Wilmslow, with no knowledge of the process of soap making. Ruth made me feel welcome and at ease from the offset.
I was amazed at how quick the process was and the amazing soaps we made, and the smell was fantastic
Thanks Ruth for an enjoyable day

Response from Ruth Romano:Thanks for your review Suzi. Really glad you enjoyed the day!
I'd like to say a big thank you to Ruth after taking the 1-2-1 Business course. The content provided was extensive and Ruth covered all areas in great detail and her wealth of experience and knowledge is invaluable. The session was relaxed and informative and if you were thinking of turning a hobby into a potential business I would highly recommend taking one of Ruth's courses as I really didn't realise how much was involved in getting all the necessary documents in place in order to sell your creations. Thanks again Ruth another fantastic course!

Response from Ruth Romano:Thanks for your recommendation Matt. It was a pleasure to meet you again. Best of luck with your plans!
An interesting course, The exercises help you to grasp the aspect of calculating prices and allergens. The course content covers all the essentials which is listed in a hand out to take away. Although it will probably take a few times to go over the content again in order to get to grips with it all.
I particularly liked the 'Determine your Niche' hand out which really gives you plenty to think about if you're excited about creating a product. Ruth was welcoming, allowing plenty of time to answer questions. She delivered the course in a very easy manner, I would really recommend. Nice country side venue too! Thank you.

Response from Ruth Romano:Thanks for your recommendation Narinda. I'm glad that you found my course useful!
We booked Ruth's business course and we were not disappointed at all.
We were provided with some very detailed supporting documents and Ruth's explanations were very clear. She answered all our questions and the practical exercices were very interesting.
All in all an excellent and very professional training experience, yet very friendly.
We highly recommend it!

I attended Ruth's soap making workshop on May 19th. I was a little apprehensive as all the books I have read about the process scared the living daylights out of me so I never attempted it. However, what a lovely surprise I had. Ruth explained and demonstrated everything with such clarity that I couldn't wait to have a go, (having taken note of the safety caveats Ruth pointed out). The venue was spacious and the other participants so friendly that I had a brilliant day. My car smelled delicious all the way home!
I can't recommend this course highly enough.

Ruth's soap making course on 19th May 2018 was both informative and enjoyable. There was a great balance of information and practical application and we came away with a lovely selection of soaps that we had made. Highly recommended!

Response from Ruth Romano:Thanks for your review and recommendation Kath!
What a wonderful day my daughter and i had! Ruth made the course very easy to understand for us beginners. We learnt so much and have come home with an array of information! Our car smelt lovely all the way back to Pembrokeshire. We can't thank Ruth enough for her inspiration and knowledge. We are looking forward to making our first batch of soap in the near future. Hope to get the chance of doing another course soon!
Much love from us both xx

Response from Ruth Romano:Thanks for your review ladies. I hope your fragrant car made your return journey a smooth one! Look forward to seeing you again soon :)
What an absolutely fantastic day at the Siddington Village Hall with Ruth's 'Soap Making Course' in May 2018.
It was amazing how quickly the time passed by, due only to the fact that Ruth has established an excellent course packed full of interest, which included the history and process of soap making with Q&A's and then straight into making from a recipe our very first batch of soap, with Ruth on hand all the time to answer any questions. This was then followed by a very nice vegetarian lunch outside, as it was a beautiful day & then back in to give feedback about our experience of soap making along with lots of info about where to get our supplies from.
We followed this up with making another batch of soap from a new recipe with other team members and to round the course off we shared the soaps to take home.
Absolutely fabulous course & would highly recommend to anyone.
Thank you Ruth!

I never thought I would get enthusiastic over a business course but I did since the 12th of May. It was worth every minute I spent there. The course was well structured, concice and included a comprehensive manual for guidance and reference. Ruth delivered the complex information in an engaging manner, using practical exercises to enhance the learning experience, to aid the understanding retention of important aspects of the course.
She welcomed all questions and took time to answer them individually. With her approachable and caring manner, she created a safe and comfortable learning environment for the course participants.
I left the course understanding structure and the sequence of how to go about setting up a safe and legal soap business. It felt as all the random pieces of a soap making business suddenly had fallen into place. I got a direction now.
I would highly recommend the course to anyone who wants to start a soap and/or cosmetic business but especially to those who do not know where to start being 'legal and safe'.
Ruth also offers 'after course' support which is very reassuring.
Thank you so much

Response from Ruth Romano:Thanks for your review Susanne. It's great to hear that all the pieces have fallen into place for you after taking my course. Good luck with your plans!
I attended Ruth's soap and cosmetics business course last Saturday 12th May. Having attended Ruth's soap making workshop in 2016, I wanted to see learn about how I could develop my soap making hobby further. I thoroughly enjoyed the day and it fully met my expectations. It was lovely to meet the other participants and share ideas. Ruth is so enthusiastic about the subject and was a great inspiration and source of information. She provided a comprehensive handout that we can refer back to and answered all of our many questions. The day has really given me the confidence to start to plan for the future. Thank you Ruth.

Response from Ruth Romano:Thanks for your review Lyn. It was lovely to meet you again and hear about your plans. Good luck!
I would recommend Ruth's course to anyone thinking of taking soap making to the next level and selling your products. This course is highly informative and her experience and great knowledge meant she could answer any of my questions. She provided comprehensive notes and also incorporated little exercises into the course to make sure we had understood everything, I particularly found this helpful. Thanks again Ruth for giving me the confidence to move forward.
Gail Leeds - - #14925
Response from Ruth Romano:Thanks for your review Gail. I am really pleased to hear that you have the confidence to move forward. Good luck with everything!
Absolutely brilliant! We couldn't make a preset course so booked a one-to-one. We had high expectations and every one was met and then some! Beautiful surroundings and a very knowledgeable tutor. We had the right mixture of history and background, technical information and useful links, an extremely useful demonstration and then as much support as we needed when we made our own soaps. Lunch was delicious, the venue was easy to get to and easy to park and we felt that we had really good value.
We could never have learnt as much as we did by books as the many hints and tips saved us from months of wasted time and money trying to achieve a decent result. The soaps we returned with were gorgeous. We were looking for a holistic opportunity producing quality soap that anyone would be thrilled to receive and use. Even if all you want is to produce some perfect gifts for family and friends, go and have a wonderful time. If you want to begin a new hobby or business, this is the perfect springboard. We asked every question we could think of and Ruth knew the answer to everything and shared her knowledge and experience openly to us.

Response from Ruth Romano:Thanks for your review Michelle. It was lovely to meet you both - you make a great team. All the best with your soap making plans!
After attending Ruth's soap making course in Didsbury I would just like to say a big thank you to Ruth for making the day informative and fun.
I wasn't really sure what to expect to be honest as I've never done anything like this before, but Ruth made us feel very welcome and shared her knowledge and expertise with us with theory and practical sessions in the morning and afternoon. It takes a brave person to let a load of novices loose with sodium hydroxide, but we managed to produce some pretty decent bars of soap for our fist attempt, with lots of laughs in the process. A great day with some great people.
I would definitely recommend one of Ruth's courses if you fancy learning a new craft.
Matt Wareing - - #14677
Response from Ruth Romano:Thanks for your review Matt. I'm so pleased that you had fun. All the best with your soap making at home!
I recently attended Ruth’s soap workshop in Didsbury.
I was a little apprehensive about making lye, however Ruth was an excellent teacher and I was inspired by her.
We used all natural ingredients and beneficial essential oils, and the soap was amazing !
An added bonus was the delightful and interesting people who also attended the workshop.
I would not hesitate to recommend Ruth’s course, it was excellent.
Thank you Ruth
Heather Wickham - - #14642
Response from Ruth Romano:Thanks for your review and recommendation Heather. It was great to meet you and chat all things natural!
I took the option of the one-to-one online course as I live in West Cornwall, this worked really well. Ruth sent me the course details in advance so I was able to make notes on possible questions I had, which was useful. Ruth is friendly, professional and informative and I found she covered everything I needed very clearly. As a qualified aromatherapist, I had previously done an accredited product making course, so that I would be covered by insurance to sell my products in shops as well as to clients. I found Ruth’s course far superior to the accredited course, and well worth the cost to get all the necessary information to feel I can now run my business in a legitamate and organised way.

Response from Ruth Romano:Thanks for your review Sally. It's great to hear that you can now move forward with your business after taking my course. Good luck with your plans!
I attended the March ‘18 course.
I spent a wonderful day learning how to make cold processed soap.
Ruth is a fabulous teacher. She made the learning fun and interesting.
Ruth provided a clear practical demonstration, highlighting safety procedures when working with lye.
We worked in pairs during the practical sessions. Each pair made their own recipes.
At the end of the day we divided up the soaps to take home.
I really enjoyed the day. Fun & informative. Soap making clearly attracts lovely people!
I thoroughly recommend Ruth’s course.
Jill Lorretta - - #14127
Response from Ruth Romano:Thanks for your review Jill. I am really pleased to hear that you enjoyed the day. Enjoy your making!
So glad that I booked myself on to this fun and excellently delivered soap making course.
A relaxed, friendly atmosphere, set in comfortable surroundings.
We received some interesting history facts followed by a hands on experience.
I'd definitely recommend this quality course to others. Looking forward to experimenting.
