About the Event

This is a beginner class for cold process soap making from the ground up.

You will learn to make a basic plain soap with the option of adding colouring and botanical items, and you will leave confident in your ability to continue on your soap making journey.

Classes run over a period of 4 hours with a small group of 4 people — this makes sure everyone gets the support they need from start to finish.

Please note: The minimum age for participants in this course is 16.

With this class option I ask that you bring with you the following:

  • 50ml of essential or fragrance oil of your choice.
  • 3 x 1lt milk or juice cartons - thoroughly washed and dried.
  • Safety goggles.
  • Heat and chemical resistant gloves.
  • Waterproof apron.
  • You will need to wear long sleeved clothing and closed shoes.

You are provided with the following to use and keep for future soap making:

  • All the oils needed for the basic recipe — olive, coconut and rice bran.
  • Lye solution.
  • Sodium lactate.
  • Mica soap colouring powder.
  • Botanicals — a choice of lavender, oatmeal, poppy seeds, chamomile or calendula.

You will be given a manual to remind you of all you have learned, including the basic recipe, as well as 2kg of the soap you have created - approximately 20 x 100gm bars.

Light refreshments will be provided for afternoon tea, so please advise if you have special dietary requirements.

Cost: $130 per person.
