Would you like to learn the addictive craft of homemade soap making?


Soap making is science, but adding scent, texture and colour is art. It’s an incredibly practical, forever creative skill that’s extremely addictive, and empowers you to know exactly what you’re putting on your body and down the drain.

I’ll teach you the foundations of cold process soap making, using the simplest 100% coconut oil recipe that can be adjusted to make hand/body, hair and laundry soap. And best of all, it produces a lovely solid bar of soap - no mushy mess on the side of your sink!

Did you know many store-bought soaps contain animal fat, toxic fragrances, Orangutan damaging palm oil and other nasties?

But it doesn’t have to be this way! Making soap is incredibly easy and cheap, once you know how and have an understanding of the foundations.

Join me for an in-depth discussion of soap making + make your own on the day to take away. We’ll cover the fundamentals of cold process soap making, including:

  • Fundamentals of soap making
  • What base ingredients are used and where to source
  • What equipment is needed
  • Safely dealing with chemical reactions
  • Natural soap additives (scent, colour and texture)
  • Cold process soap making technique
  • How to clean equipment after use
  • Incubating and cutting soap
  • Curing soap and safety checking before use
  • Soap uses, hints and tips
  • Plus general discussion & inspiration


At the workshop you’ll make a log of soap (that gets cut into individual bars) that you can scent and colour to your liking (all ingredients & equipment supplied).

I’ve found once people learn how to safely make soap and see how easy it is, they’re able to start whipping up batches themselves with confidence. 

I’ve done the research for you. Save yourself time and energy by discovering the tricks, tools and resources that will get you started successfully.

What's included:

  • detailed pdf instructions and recipes of what is covered on the day
  • make your own log of soap to take home with you
  • Private Facebook Group for ongoing support

Please get in touch to book a date via email and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
