Natural Soap Making Class

How to make natural soap



2 hours Class size 1 to 20     label $120


You’ll learn how to make your very own natural soap using a non-toxic melt and pour method of making soap. You will take home about eight to ten bars of soap using a one-litre milk carton as your mould!

This is a timeless art that you’ll enjoy for many years to come. So if you’ve always wanted to make beautiful bespoke bars of soaps, this is the class for you! Our aim is to empower you to make bath and body care products that are sustainable, using natural ingredients.

All of the equipment and ingredients are supplied, all you need to bring with you is an empty one-litre milk carton! Easy! There will also be soap making kits available for purchase so you can make more at home.

 

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



What you'll get

    • The knowledge of how to make gorgeous soap, anytime you want
    • You’ll take home approx. one litre of natural handmade soap (about eight to ten chunks)
    • An array of different scents, dried flowers/herbs, etc, to choose from.
What to bring

    • *IMPORTANT* Please bring with you an empty one-litre Paper Carton (a square one-litre milk carton will work best!) Make sure it is a box milk carton, not a plastic milk carton.  This will be used as your soap mould!

Good instructors, materials were all good too. Price seemed a little high but it was a fun night in a good venue and the two hours was perfect.

Attended a 'how to soap ' class on Thursday night. The teachers were great and very informative. It was super easy and fun class. The location was great and the class was setup with all that we needed to make beautiful soaps. The best part was coming home with my handmade soaps. Thank you it was very enjoyable and look forward to attending more workshops. Thanks Natalie

Soap making.

It was an informative beginners class. The venue was suitable. Very central
