Natural Soap Making Class

Learn how to make homemade-style 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

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!

Work-Shop is a creative concept that will broaden your horizons and help you unleash your inner awesome. We provide affordable short courses in life skills and alternative art. We’ve teamed up with Australia’s brightest creative minds to share their knowledge and help teach you a new skill. From 3D printing and stencil art through to music and gardening – life skills and personal development through to cooking doughnuts and mushroom foraging, we offer a broad range of fun and creative short courses to suit our time poor lives. We will inspire you to pick up that pen, paintbrush, hammer or sewing machine and flick the switch that will kickstart a whole new way of life.

Community values lie at the heart of our project. We collaborate with local artists and industry experts to teach classes and utilise local suppliers for any materials needed. We also provide a creative environment for emerging artists to produce and sell work, and meet like minded individuals. Work-Shop will be a space for everyone, with a rotating schedule of art shows, information nights on local issues and a whole range of events and community initiatives.

Thanks for a great night. This was a cool way to get creative as well as meet new people. The skills of the artists were evident and their friendly approach to the class made it a really enjoyable experience. The venue was fine but parking was a real problem; especially as most participants were women, walking a long way to my car in the dark was a bit daunting. I had a voucher but I am already looking for new creative experiences to attend with ClassBento!

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
I would like to have explored more additives to soap such as dried herbs or flowers
