Saturday October 8th and Wednesday October 12th
10am to 4pm
I will provide all equipment required and the ingredients for the course, the safety equipment, full course notes and recipes. You will get to make your soap in a mold that you can take away with you, enough soap for 10 - 12 bars! The course cost also includes all refreshments and a tasty, homemade, light vegetarian lunch,
You will also be able to buy "Carry On" kits of ingredients to take home with you at the course venue.
I have found an absolutely fabulous venue, peaceful, beautiful, light and airy with full disabled access and plenty of parking.
So what are you waiting for? come and learn how to make quality, beautiful, natural soaps using the traditional cold process method.
A bit of the spiel from the website to whet your appetite.....
"My goal is to teach the skills you need to successfully make beautiful handmade soap using natural ingredients such as olive oil, shea and cocoa butter and lovely essential oils.
We will provide you with everything you will need, all the ingredients, equipment and safety gear. You will learn in small groups of no more than 8 people in a clean, relaxing place with plenty of time to ask all the questions you want. Your instruction comes from an experienced certified soap maker so you can feel totally happy that you will be receiving the best tuition possible as well as having great fun learning a new skill and making new friends.
Soap making does not require a huge amount of complicated equipment or ingredients and is a really absorbing hobby, imagine how great it would be to be able to easily make all your Christmas and birthday gifts, soaps for your whole family, for special occasions or just for yourself. Especially as they will be totally natural, not containing any of the harsh, unfriendly chemicals of commercial soaps."
I can't tell you how excited I am about this, I have been wanting to set up courses for so long and finally I have had the time to do it. If you know anyone who would like to come along do let them know as well. I have an online booking form:
So lets go to it! Another chapter in the journey that is Naturally Made Soaps.
