Join us and learn how to make natural soap using the cold process method. You will learn all about this traditional soap making method, the science of soapmaking, the different oils and butters you can use to make an all natural soap without palm oil. You will find out about essential oils, their benefits and how they can be used in soapmaking and how to colour your soaps naturally using botanical powders, infusions and clays. You will get to make your own soap using your own special blend of essential oils, botanicals and natural colourants to make a totally unique soap, just for you Workshop Details We provide you with everything you need to make a 500g loaf of soap (about 5 bars of soap). We will provide you with a beginner friendly recipe that you will be able to personalise with your own choice of scent, botanical additives including clays, organic oats and exfoliants and natural colourants. We send you away with all the information you need to cut and cure your soaps at home and a soap recipe so you can make more of your bespoke soap in your own time. We will teach you all about how to formulate and make your own soap safely, plus loads of soap making tips and tricks with lots of design advice so you can confidently make beautiful skin kind soaps. The workshop will last 4 hours - please wear long sleeves. Your Trainer Kelly is the founder of Small Kindness, a sustainable soap business in Birmingham.
