Soap Making Workshop



3.5 hours 1 to 6 (public classes), 4 to 10 (private) label $189


Industrial produced soaps are often much like junk food, so why not produce your own and know what is in there. Learn about your skin type and create any soap you want, it is that easy
Explore the industry and the meaning of their labels as well as how to produce your own products in a healthier way.

In this class you will learn how to make your own organic soap with ingredients and equipment that you (probably) already have in your kitchen. In this class I'll teach you how to make soaps with pure natural materials. No artificial scents or additives are used.

We'll start with a basic cold process soap recipe. I'll teach you how to add herbs, scents and other additives to your soaps, give you tips and tricks about ingredients to help you create your own soap recipe.

Once you know the basic, you will be able to customize the recipes into your own signature soap for personal use, for gifts, for profit or just to learn about what goes into making a soap.

With or without any experience you will learn the foundations of the cold process technique.
You will be choosing your favorite natural essential oil (13 E.O. available) natural and cosmetic colors and making herbal soap bars with exfoliating natural ingredients and customize a soap recipe especially to moisturize your skin for example.

You will leave the class with 2 bar of soap (about 1.5 kilo) for you to enjoy and lots of note with all the information you need to understand how soap making works.

I thoroughly enjoyed the lesson. I feel confident in making soap at home.
Although It was a lot of information to take in, the teacher explained it well and provided great notes to keep. Also very generous!
I have cut out 15 individual soaps out of the two blocks of soap we made.

Elena was a nice person, however the class was a bit disorganised. I was expecting the course to be more professional for the price.

We were 8 in total, a smaller group would have been better given the small room, we were lacking of space to put out the essential oils, colours, etc.

We had a really nice time. Learned the basics of soap making with a lot of extra special advice and personal experience. Plenty of choices for fragrance and colour and design. Venue is a bit cramped for 6 as there is a lot of gear needed. Lesson was clear if a wee bit disorganised, but this did not affect the outcome. Everyone's questions were answered and everyone created beautiful soaps.

I attended Elena’s soap making workshop last week and it was fantastic. Elena seemed to be very passionate and knowledgeable about the whole process. She was very friendly and very patient through out ( saying that as I had zero knowledge in soapmaking) ! All the materials were provided. I had a great time and would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in this art

Coming into this class, I did not know any thing about soap making. I walked away full of knowledge about the essentials of soap making. Elena also shared other information like available suppliers for the necessary materials and websites we could refer to for further guidance. Thank you, Elena.

Learning to make soap with Elena was the best experience! She is so lovely, personable, relaxed and so knowledgeable. Not only did I get to come home with two fabulous hand made soaps I also learnt so much - this workshop isn’t just about getting hands on, it’s a complete learning experience. The location is perfect and simply everything is included. I would highly recommend this workshop to anyone. I can’t wait to try out Elena’s other workshops. Thanks so much for having me!

I absolutely loved the class. Highly recommended. Great techniques, tips, ingredients & very enjoyable and therapeutic. Although its 4 hr, you feel like just 1 hr (in a good way). Time flies when you have great fun. Thanks Elena.

The workshop was just what I was after. Elena knows her subject well, and supplied notes for us to continue with at home. We were able to make two different batches to our own design. I would recommend it as a very good introduction to making soap.

I enjoyed the soap making course alot. It was highly informative with lots of info at the beginning but we got to make two 400ml tubs of our own soaps to take home (about 10 slices altogether)
Venue was small but so cosy and elena offered herbal tea and muffins before we started our work.
Elena made a big effort to give us as much information as possible and she was fun and relaxed in her teaching.
V small class so we received good 1 to 1 help.
Excellent value. Elena went over the 3.5 hrs but didnt rush us which was great.
Tools and materials provided were really good.
A definite recommendation to this class if you want to have fun but also go home with the knowledge to make your own soaps to sell or give as beautiful gifts.
