Event description

Description

On this full day Introduction to traditional soap-making experience with local designer-maker Jenny Smith, you will learn how to make traditional cold-pressed soap as well as melt and pour glycerine soap.

The day will begin with coffee and pastries, and a background to the design and soap-making process. You will then learn about the properties of our natural cold-pressed soap and selection of essential oils, and choose a recipe to make. Working in pairs, you will learn how to make up and line a mould in preparation for soap-pouring. When the soap has cooled, you will pour your soap into the mould ready for curing. We will then take some time out for lunch.

In the afternoon we will move onto working with organic glycerine soap. You will learn how to melt, pour and mould your soap into shapes of your choice. You will then design and create your own decorative packaging ready for gift wrapping your glycerine soap ready to take home. Your cold-pressed soap will be ready to collect after 3 weeks of curing, or for the price of postage we will mail it on to you.

You will have access to all the equipment you need, and the price includes includes all materials, lunch and refreshments.

This workshop is also available to book as half-day options if you only wish to learn one soap-making process. The cost is £47.50 per person including refreshments and all materials, and excluding lunch.

Please note that The Arienas Collective experiences are run from a first-floor space and unfortunately we do not have lift access. Please inform us of any skin or food allergies before booking.
