Cold Process Soap Making Workshops

Soap Making – Cold Process Beginner's Workshop

Beginners Soapmaking Workshop: 

Ever wanted to make soap and dive into the craft of cold process soapmaking but don't feel confident enough to try it? 

Do you want to make your own healthy body products so you know what is in them!?

There are lots of reasons to make your own soap, and now you can ! in this fun and informative workshop :) 

  

This is a hands on workshop but no experience is necessary and all materials, safety gear and tools are supplied. All the soap ingredients are pre-weighed and measured so you just get straight into the fun part! ... choosing your colours, flowers, clays and of course the gorgeous fragrances and pure essential oils. 

 

The Workshop:

With close guidance and help from me and my assistant, you get to design your own loaf of soap. You choose from my huge variety of dried flowers, rose buds, seeds, spices, natural colours, salts, clays and much more. To scent your soap, you can choose from - A selection of pure 100% essential oils and a range of "nature identical oil blend fragrances" made in USA by Brambleberry. I consider these the best you can buy and are a blend of essential oils and nature identical fragrance oils (created in a lab to mimic the chemical structure of a more expensive oil, rather than a straight out synthetic)

You will then see a live demonstration, followed by guidance through the soap-making to make your loaf of soap, which will be ready for you to take home on the day.

 

And you get to take home:

· A gorgeous loaf of soap, ready to be cut into 7-8 bars (value $50.00+)

· You keep the timber mold and some of the safety gear!

· You will also receive my original recipe which is super-moisturising, vegan, palm oil free and using ingredients that are easy to obtain in Perth

· An invaluable information packed resources sheet – 6 x A4 pages full of what I have learned through research and trial and error 😊 . Including loads of detail we may not get chance to cover in the workshop, safety information, how to cure and cut your soap, as well as extra resources and links

Shampoo Bar Workshops

All the detail

Beginners Shampoo Bar Workshop: 

Not all shampoo bars are created equal! Some are soap and others are noodles of harsh detergents pressed together to form a bar which can crumble. There is nothing wrong with either (soap is good for dreadlocks and SLS is a cheaper alternative) But I prefer a very mild, long lasting, solid bar that is so good on your hair that conditioner is not always needed. Great for travelling and gentle on the planet with no packaging required.

Perth Soapworks' shampoo bars have become so popular that I have decided to show you how to make them. I get requests for different colours, fragrances, and constant requests for this workshop. So I thought i would throw open the doors, so you can design and make them just how you like - any shape or colour you like. Add flowers, extracts. Make dog shampoo or a shampoo that may suit your sensitive scalp. My unique formula and process ensures a hard bar that is extremely mild and has a great feel on the hair. - moisturising, frizz taming, very gentle. No soap, no SLS, no silicone.

So how are these shampoo bars actually made? What are they made of?  Want to have a go but don't feel confident enough to try it? Daunted by the amount of ingredients and where to get them from?

Do you want to make your own bars so you know what is in them? Save a few dollars by making your own? Want a butterfly shape ? 

There are lots of reasons to make your own shampoo bars, and now you can ! in this fun, hands on workshop :) 

All ingredients, equipment, safety gear and tools are supplied.  Some of the base ingredients are pre-weighed and measured (for dust hazard reasons) so you just get straight into the fun part! ... choosing your additives, colours, clays and of course the gorgeous fragrances and/or pure essential oils. You also get to choose the shape – from butterflies to love hearts, to square bars.

The Workshop:

With only a few people in a class and with close guidance and help from me and my assistant, you get to design the shape, colour, smell and beneficial properties of your own bars. You choose from my huge variety of natural colours, salts, clays, dried flowers, seeds, spices, and much more. To scent your soap, you can choose from - A selection of pure 100% essential oils and/or a range of "nature identical oil blend fragrances" made in USA by Brambleberry. I consider these the best you can buy and are a blend of essential oils and nature identical fragrance oils (created in a lab to mimic the chemical structure of a more expensive oil, rather than a straight out synthetic)

You will be guided through the process to make your own bars, which will be ready for you to take home on the day.

And you get to take home:

· A years’ supply of shampoo bars!!

· You will also receive my basic recipe which is super-moisturising, vegan, and using ingredients that are easy to obtain in Perth

· An invaluable information packed resources sheet – of what I have learned through research and lots and lots and lots of trial and error 😊 . Including, safety information, how care for bars, as well as extra resources and links

PLEASE NOTE: To participate, you must be willing to wear the supplied safety gear and follow the safe handling procedures during the workshop. We will be using ingredients that can produce some dust that can be hazardous to health if inhaled. They are no longer a hazard when wetted down which happens early in the workshop – it is just the dust that may arise when mixing, weighing or handling the material.
