What a fantastic course, Emma is such a great teacher and explains everything in a way you can understand. The studio was very well equipped and smelt amazing, lunch was included which was really nice. Making the soap in the afternoon was totally amazing and you get to take it home with you. Overall a really great experience, I would highly recommend anyone thinking about it to go for it, you certainly won't be sorry x
I thoroughly enjoyed my Soap Making day with Emma. She is a great teacher, imparting the theory in an easy to understand manner, and the take away pack is a comprehensive resource to refer to later. A lovely lunch was followed by a well prepared session in the workshop - what a great room! Emma moved from demonstrating to guiding to careful watching while I made my own batches of soap, enabling me to gain confidence in the process. Can’t wait to use the soaps (they have to cure for a bit first), but my house smells lovely while I plan my future soaps! The kit is well worth buying as well, giving me a chance to try again with familiar ingredients. A very highly recommended course!
I had a fantastic day with Emma on a one-to-one course, I came away with all the tools needed to start soap making. Emma explained processes clearly and answered all my questions (and there was a few) with extreme knowledge, passion and patience. Since taking the course last Thursday, I have already made 2 batches of soap using the skills Emma taught me and they were both successful.
I would highly recommend this course. I learnt so much and it was also great fun, I returned home motivated and excited to start my new adventure, so a massive thank you Emma.
Attended the one day course in March 2019 and absolutely loved it.
I am new to soap making so opted for the one to one course, and enjoyed every minute of the day. Once the theory was out of the way I made 5 soaps in the afternoon which are currently setting in my garage and I cant wait to try them... only 4 weeks to go.
Emma spent the time I required on each section and is a great teacher.
Fantastic day.... nothing more to say.
Emma was very knowledgeable and passionate throughout the course. Explained everything need to know.
Was a great day learning all aspects of soap making. Made three batches of my own soap to take home. Smell and Turned out lovely looking forward making more. Emma was always willing to help when needed. Would highly recommend.
Thanks Again Emma.
A Great days course. Emma is very knowledgeable and passionate about her work. She made learning so enjoyably and easy. I learnt so much and came away with some lovely soap of my own making.😘
Great company, Great food, Great products. An excellent, value for money course.
I would highly rate and recommend this company
Congratulation to Emma and Richard for what they have achieved.
Really enjoyed this course. Soap making can be a bit “sciencey” and Emma got us through that easily and we have excellent course notes to refer to. The practical section was well thought out with a logical progression and plenty of time to explore her very interesting workspace and ask lots of questions. I travelled from Winchester and it was worth the drive! All in all a very good course.
I had a lovely day making soap with Emma and a small group. It was very informative yet concise with plenty of backup information to refer to in the future. It would have been nice to have made 3 batches of soap in the afternoon but there wouldn't have been enough time. It was nice to see everyone else's creations being made too. I also got the kit to bring home and make more soaps and I am really looking forward to experimenting. I would love to come back and do another course with Emma, it was a very relaxed day and we were well looked after. I am definitely going to be recommending to everyone I know
I joined this course as I love essential oils and aromatherapy on the whole. Emma was very informative, straight to the point and a great teacher. I had never made any soaps prior to the course and had no knowledge of soap making whatsoever and yet by the end of it I made 3 batches of differently made soap which is now curing and smelling wonderfully around my house. Well done Emma! Most importantly for any beginner or enthusiast, I feel confident that I can repeat the whole process of soap making at my home and keep on using it. What can be better? I can highly recommend it to any person willing to try it for either personal use or in preparation of running your own business, you won't be disappointed :))
I had a really great day learning about the art of cold process soap making. Emma is very thorough and imparts a great deal of knowledge and experience. The course provides a very clear step-by-step guide, with the theory in the morning and then the pratical in the afternoon, and is the perfect introduction into the world of soap making. Overall all, a very relaxed and informative day.
My son and I had a very enjoyable day at Soapology,the morning is spent learning about the history and theory behind cold process soap making,followed by lunch.
The afternoon session begins with Emma’s demonstration,then you get to be creative making your own soap,there were plenty of choices to add colour and fragrance to the soap,we made 3 batches of soap to take home.
It’s a very relaxed atmosphere and a great day

My friend and I decided that instead of buying birthday pressies we would do an activity together.
The Soapology one day course was brilliant.
We are both complete beginners Emma was great going through all the science and health and safety aspects of soap making.She gave good examples to explain the complicated stuff which really clarified the process.After lunch it was all hands on soap making and soon we were trying different essential oils and making different designs and textured soap.
Very good value for money
Detailed teaching and a takeaway handbook with everything you need to know to make your own soap.
And at the end of the day you take home the soap you have made which in our case was three containers of sweetly fragranced soap each.
Lunch was provided and Emma had catered for us as veggies.
Would strongly recommend this course we had a lovely day and met some very nice people on the course.
My mum and i went to the group course and thoroughly enjoyed it! During the morning session Emma went through the science & safety side of soap making. After a delicious lunch, Emma demonstrated how to make soap, using the cold process method, then we got to make 3 batches of soap, using different essential oils and natrual colours. It was a brilliant day all round. Highly recommended course for other budding soap makers.
Had a lovely day with Emma, which has now given me the confidence to do lots of my own experiments in creating my own soap. The day was very informative and well structured. She talked through the necessary chemistry of soap making in the morning and then it was practical, hands on in the afternoon. I took away lots of soap that i’d made and loads of enthusiasm to make more. Thanks Emma!
Very informative day, starting with the history of soap making & it's composition, right through to creating our very own bars of soap. a very relaxed atmosphere & a very interesting day with a light lunch supplied at lunchtime. I would not hesitate to recommend this course.
An interesting and insightful day of what goes into soap making. The workshop struck the right balance between the theory aspect which was an overview of Science, Maths and the Creative side and then the practical part of actually making up our own soap. It was quite fun in choosing our own ingredients such as colour, essential oils and herbs. I purchased the starter pack and will be looking forward to adding my own additives and creating pretty patterns! Emma was lovely and welcoming which makes all the difference in learning. The day left me with lots to think about for potential ideas. I would recommend this workshop for anyone who wants to get a taste of this subject before they actually commit.
My Colleague Joyce and I, were really pleased with the excellent 121 Soap Making Course session we attended on 14th April 2018. We have both attended other soap making courses. However, Emma's course is the best that we have attended !!! As soon as you enter the lovely Soap Studio you are made to feel welcome, the scent of the lovely essential oils, immediately puts you at ease. Emma, takes the time to provide a comprehensive introduction into Soap Making, which is really insightful. The amount of information provided during the course is invaluable. Emma's generosity is evident throughout the day, not only in terms of the excellent accompanying handout, including soap recipes, but also the range of soaps we were able to make. We thoroughly enjoyed the creative process of making soap it was a lot of fun.
Emma's patience, her willingness to share her knowledge, and the quality of the content of the training we received, is what sets Soapology Studio, apart from other Soap Schools. Emma, has has a passion for soap, and a passion for people. The encouragement and support we received, just left me feeling very grateful.
If you are looking for a creative day out, or have a desire to start a soap business - I would encourage you to attend a course with Emma. You will not be disappointed.
We are look forward to working with Emma, as we take the next steps in our Soap Business journey.
Final note :The lunch provided is delicious ........
