The perfect Beginners Cold Process Soap Making Workshop brought to your door! That’s right, your very own natural soap making class with follow along videos. Julie has been making soap since 2002 and shares lots of tips and tricks that she’s learnt along the way.
The list of ingredients and equipment needed to make soap can be intimidating to the beginner soapmaker. So we’re really excited to be able to bring you our Beginners Soap Making Kit with follow along online video tutorials where we’ll walk you through the entire soapmaking process, step-by-step from the time you open your kit. This natural soap making kit comes with a fabulous reusable silicone mold and some beautiful ingredients such as shea butter, avocado oil and essential oils. Enough to make 16 bars of cold process soap. Most of the equipment you will have in your kitchen and and once you have your kit and follow along with the tutorials you will see that it is not too hard to make soap at home in your kitchen. As well as the link to our online video tutorials you will also receive a printed workbook with full instructions.
We start with a basic one colour exfoliating soap and then move onto a swirled soap using natural mineral clays for colour. I’ll discuss creating your own recipes, the different oils you can use in soap, swirling techniques, essential oils and colour options as we go along.
Watch our introductory video for more information. We also hold face to face cold process soap making workshops throughout the year so keep a look out for notices on those. Better still send us a message and we’ll add you to the wait list.
