Soap-making Workshop for Beginners

Learn how to make your own cold processed soap



3 hours Class size 12 to 60     label $140


Feeling dirty? We have you covered! In this beginner's soaping workshop in Sydney, you will learn how to make your very own natural cold processed soap using mostly organic ingredients you can find in your own home!

Best of all you will get to take home what you make, (a massive 600g cake of soap) including the professional silicon mould you made it in! Fair warning, as with all cold process soap, you will need to wait at least four weeks to use what you make in class, but it will totally be worth it when you use that first slice!

By the end of this class, you will:

  • Have a basic chemical understanding of how soap is made
  • Understand carrier oils and their properties when made into soap
  • How to safely handle lye
  • Know the difference between fragrance oil and an essential oil
  • How to calculate and create your own soaping recipe from scratch
  • How to make your own soap using ingredients you already have in your house
  • Be OBSESSED with making soap!

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

- Expert guidance on safe and delicious soap making

  • 600g cake of soap made by you
  • Professional grade silicone mould to keep making at home

What to bring

- Closed-toe shoes

  • Long sleeve shirts, long pants, basically clothes you won’t mind getting a little dirty in!

Suitable for

This class is perfect for beginners - no prior experience is needed.

This class is a great indoor activity idea for a birthday or hens party.

Katie likes to put food on her face. In 2016 she decided to transfer this love into making cold process soap for her friends and family. An obsession was born and Squeaky Squid, a small-time soap making operation with dreams of funding an almost unhealthy soaping habit, was created.

Katie focuses on making products which abide by the principles of “Organic, Ethical, and Sustainable” and uses mostly organic ingredients with some skin safe and affective synthetics to create unique soap and skincare that is fun for everyone.

I thought the course was good, giving me the confidence to go it alone and try at home. I felt there was a little too much science for a beginners’ course and I would have liked a few more recipes. All in all it was a positive experience and I would recommend it but you did ask for feedback.

Roulla Yiacoumi  •  Feb 2021


A terrific class with an enthusiastic teacher! Katie guides you through soapmaking theory, culminating in the creation of a 600g soap - and you get to keep the high-quality professional mould! Katie covered all of the basics from soaping ingredients to fragrances and gives a good understanding of how it all comes together. The venue was good with parking in surrounding streets - but get there early. A wonderful way to spend a Saturday morning!
