Event description

Description

Learn how to make traditional cold process soap with Stacey and Audrey from award-winning soap company Bean & Boy in this introductory workshop.

August and September 2019: we're focussing on wildflowers and botanicals in soapmaking. We'll be experimenting with clays and flowers, looking at how natural colourants work and how you can make soap again in the future using ingredients from your own gardens. Beginners and more experienced soapmakers are welcome to attend.

October and November 2019: we're going to be focussing on making your own Christmas soaps and will be using a lot of traditional Christmas scents and spices - think cinnamon, orange, clove and gold leaf! This is a fun workshop where you will make individual soaps to take home and cure, just in time to give away as gifts under the Christmas tree. Ideal for beginners, but more experienced soapmakers will be able to attend and experiment with new ingredients.

We're passionate about traditional crafts, and we're reviving the art of cold process soapmaking in this fun workshop that covers the basics of oils and butters, proper safety, working with lye, choosing essential oils and botanicals, making soap at home, getting creative with swirls and techniques, and of course - soapmaking!

We don't use artificial ingredients to scent or colour our soaps, so you'll get creative with clays, botanicals and essential oils. In this introductory workshop you will make two soap recipes, you'll work with your chosen scents and designs, and you'll take home plenty of info and experience to get you started on your soapmaking journey. You'll also take home a selection of soaps from the day, some recipes, and a good understanding of the science behind soapmaking.

We keep workshops small so that you have fun, make friends and can ask plenty of questions while you get hands-on experience. That does mean that spaces are limited; if you miss out, please email hello@beanandboy.com to join the waiting list in case of cancellations, or keep a look out for more dates which are added regularly.

Tea and biscuits will be served. You're welcome to bring your own snacks if you want to, although there'll be a busy soapmaking schedule during the four hour workshop and we won't be having a long break. There'll be time for tea during the safety briefing, and again while we wait for oils to cool down before making soap.
