About the event

In this hands on workshop you will learn to make beautiful moisturizing soaps using all natural ingredients. If you would love to learn how to make luscious natural handmade soaps using traditional oils, exotic butters and essential oils from scratch the traditional way, then this is the course for you! You will also learn how to use a wide range of herbs and natural botanicals effectively in your soaps. There is no prior experience required, just a willingness to experience the joy of creating your own soaps from scratch.   Learn in a hands on environment in small friendly groups. A full handout and recipe sheets are also supplied as well as useful top tips plus free soapmaking resource information.
