The Practical Soap Course
Learning to make soap is not that difficult. There are numerous books and other blogs with tutorials but some people learn better with a practical hands on demonstration. The pouring of the sodium hydroxide into the water always makes students think twice about tackling it on their own the first time. And it is true, you cannot be complacent about safety. If you are one of those who would prefer to have someone more experienced watch over you the first time you make soap then this could be the answer.
This is a low-budget option for those people who feel able to learn the theory from course notes or a book. The practical soap course will teach you how to be safe while making soap and provide you with free recipes to get you started. You will watch a demonstration of soap making and then have the opportunity to make a small batch of soap yourself under the supervision of an internationally acclaimed soap maker. The course assumes that if you wish to tailor recipes you will have to do some research on your own. The course runs on a week day from 9am to 1pm (ish) and costs £40 per student. No lunch, although tea/coffee and juice will be provided during the morning. Maximum of 4 students per session - booking is essential.
