Cold Process Soap Making Workshops

Soap Making – Cold Process Beginner's Workshop

This information packed 3.25-hour workshop, will take you through the basics of soapmaking as I share with you my favourite, super-moisturising, vegan, palm oil free soap recipe.

No experience is necessary and all materials, safety gear and tools are supplied.


You will get to take home :

· Your beautiful, skin friendly loaf of soap which cuts into 7-8 bars ($50+ value)

· The recipe used in class 

· A timber mould

· Some safety gear

PLUS all instructions and a resources list so you can recreate the process at home!


There is also the option of purchasing a kit of tools with everything you need to create soap safely at home without having to use your kitchen utensils.


You will learn :

· The magical chemical reaction that takes place during the soapmaking process and how a bowl of pure oils transforms into a bar of beautiful soap

· All about oils and luxury butters

· How to use natural household additives to add colour and character to soap such as dried flowers, coffee grounds, activated charcoal, zinc, etc 

· How to use mica to colour your soap 

· The use of essential oils and fragrances in soap


You choose the type of soap you will make

Either a completely fragrance and colour-free pure soap or a sweetly fragranced, brightly coloured creation, or somewhere between. The choice is yours!


We use only the finest quality products, and cosmetic and skin-safe grade additives, if you choose to use them. No ingredients are tested on animals.  They are all responsibly sourced, vegan and palm oil free. 


The perfect formula for a fun and rewarding afternoon.
