Your teacher will show you how to make soaps with pure, natural materials without the use of artificial scents or additives. Note, you will learn how to use caustic soda safely, as it's an essential ingredient in soap making.

No experience is necessary, as you will learn the foundations of the cold process technique. You will be choosing your favourite natural essential oil (13 varieties available). Your experienced teacher will demonstrate how to add herbs, scents and other additives to your soaps, and share tips and tricks about the ingredients to help you create your very own soap recipe.

Once you know the basics, you will be able to customise the recipes into your own signature soap for personal use, to gift, for-profit or just learn about the art of making soap.

You will leave the class with two bars of soap (about 1.8kg) to take home to enjoy and lots of notes with all the information you need to understand how soap making works!

Hi there

My name is Elena and I start my business Bellanina Creations in 2016 making candles

Candle making is a form of art and in one that I have a wealth of knowledge and expertise gained over many years of candle making. My expertise goes far beyond wax and wicks. I have hosted many classes and met many wonderful people and each time it truly brings so much joy to my heart just by seeing people from all walks of life including first-timers, hobbyists and entrepreneurs enjoying my class making candles.

Throughout my class, I ensure everyone is involved and engaged having a hands-on experience at making candles. I discuss how different ingredients react and how to work with them safely, how candle testing is conduct and all the troubleshooting you might encounter on your jorney. At the end of my sessions, I only hope that I made a difference to someone not only by improving their knowledge and skills in the subtle art of candle making but also ensuring a fun weekend experience had by all.

I must also mention that I do my absolute best in protecting our beautiful planet. I make every endeavour to ensure the products and the ingredients I use is sustainable and ethically sourced where possible. I would like to add for your peace of mind - my fragrances are completely vegan and cruelty-free and adhere to RIFM and IFRA standards for safety and purity.

My candles and my soap is created with passion and represents my craft.

With that said, I hope to see you on my next workshopand get your feedback on board as I always aim to improve.

Great space, easy to find, the teacher was so enthusiastic and bubbly which made me even more excited. She was so patient and positive which made for a lasting experience. I traveled 6 hours to attend the course and would do it again tomorrow if I didn’t have such fixed work commitments. The follow up notes were excellent and my soap is fabulous, 10/10 Bernie

This is the 3rd workshop I have done with Elena. She is a great teacher. She is very knowledgeable and at the same time makes leaning (some complicated things) lots of fun. Her enthusiasm is contagious. The info packs given out is comprehensive and the ingredients and end product are top quality. Can’t recommend enough. Ended up with over 2kg of soap, which I have just cut up to finish curing.
Can’t wait to do another one of Elena’s courses!
