Learn how to make your own cold-pressed organic soap with natural herbs and shea butter.
WHAT'S THIS ALL ABOUT?
Let’s do our bit to help the planet and make the bathroom a plastic-free zone. Plastic bottles have had their day, we have to go back to a basic bar. But just how basic do they have to be?
We all know that soap is one of those bathroom luxuries. The smell and texture contribute a vital sensory edge to our soak experience. And what’s going into the bar? Remember, this is a product you put on your skin everyday, and it should moisturise and protect - nobody wants skin that feels like a dry, flakey biscuit.

You can pick from 4 different methods, choose which method and ingredients suit you. Prepare to learn the cooking techniques, how to prepare a soap base and how to heat and monitor temperatures.
Choose from a selection of colours and experiment with marbling and layering colour. You will be working with natural ingredients to fragrance the soap, as well as herbs and flowers that add to the dermatological properties in the bar. Think poppy seeds for exfoliating to marigold flowers with their anti-inflammatory and healing properties.
At the end of the class you will have your very own custom made soap and the know-how to carry on producing (gifts sorted for a lifetime!).
THE ALL IMPORTANT DETAILS
- Runs monthly on Saturdays and Thursday evening

Insider tip: Make a day of it and walk along the canal to Goldbourne Road and Portobello Market in the afternoon.
