Looking for unique kids workshops during the school term? Come and join Kareena Preston in The Shed and take part in this unique series of kids weekly creative workshops!

Kids can learn how to make a range of DIY skincare from lip balm to body butter to bath bombs. Since every week will cover a new product, you can book your child in for a one-off workshop or as many as they please. Please note there is a slight price difference between some of the different classes.

We will work briefly through the 'What' and the 'Why' and most importantly spend some time on the 'How' of these products.

Hi, my name is Kareena and I am the owner and soap maker at Kri:ei’tiviti Natural Handmade Artisan Soap. We are a micro-business producing small-batch, hand made, cold process, natural soap, in Perth, Western Australia.

So, a bit about me and my soap making... I began making soap a few years ago now after a rather extensive career as a high-performance swim coach. I am registered with the Australian Industrial Chemicals Introduction Scheme (AICIS No 1001654) which all sounds rather important. And it is. As a Cold Process Soap Maker, this is a requirement!

I began making soap out of a need to find a suitable product for my highly reactive, sensitive skin. So research, making, testing and more research was needed to find the right recipe.

But that's not all, I also have a load of qualifications that may not seem relevant but tell you a lot about who I am... including;

  • Winner of the 2020 RKCC Solo Business of the Year Award
  • Winner of the Perth Makers Market Scholarship 2020
  • COVID-19 Safety Trained
  • First Aid with Advanced Resuscitation Training
  • Certificate 3 in MicroBusiness
  • Bachelor of Arts with Honours (Urban and Regional Studies)
  • Silver Licence Swim Coach (Advanced Coach)
  • Working With Children Check - because I want to teach kids the benefit of natural skin products too!

And what does all this mean for you?

Well, there are no formal qualifications required to be a soap maker, however, you know you are dealing with someone who knows how to research, formulate and test which is really vital in producing great quality soap.

I also LOVE to educate people on the benefits of using all-natural handmade soap and body products.
Our wish is to make a product that is kind to the earth and kind to your skin!
