Event Details

The ancient art of soapmaking is a collaboration of art and science and here at Soapology we love to teach enthusiastic newcomers to soap the skills of the business that we love.   We start at the beginning and aim to have a lovely creative day and for you to leave with some skills, some soap and a smile on your face :-)           


Emma is a self taught soaper, with many years experience in soapmaking and running her own soap business selling wholesale to retailers throughout the UK and direct to consumers at our local farmers market in West Bridgford and online.           


The day is structured to give you the most time for hands on practice but with a healthy level of theory to give you the best possible experience.             




Brief history and basic chemistry of soapmaking           

Everything you’ll need to get started – ingredients and equipment           

Safety aspects of working with Sodium Hydroxide           

Preparation of moulds and moulding options           

Using additives in soap such as flowers, seeds, oats, oxides, herbs, spices and clays           

Colouring your natural soaps           

Adding nutrient oils for various skin conditions           

Blending Pure Essential oils for fragrance           

Mixing, pouring, cutting, curing and storing your finished soap           


We will explore all of the raw ingredients that you can pick from to make soap and begin to look in detail using your touch and smell senses to start to learn about the oils and butters as we talk you through your first batch where you will watch Emma and ask as many questions as you need to get your confidence.           




We break for a delicious lunch and return buzzing with ideas and ready to get started on your first solo batch.           




The afternoon brings plenty of experimentation where you will create between 3 – 4 batches (time dependent) and get lots of practice in.           

Whatever you have made is yours to take home and use or give as gifts to friends and family who will no doubt be amazed at how clever you are             


A demonstration by Emma           

A supervised afternoon of soapmaking using a variety of oils, fats, butters and nutrient oils.           

Playing with colours and fragrance options and experimenting with additives such as poppyseeds and oatbran           


At the end of your workshop, you can choose to purchase a starter pack of ingredients to take home and practice your new skill.  The pack is £30 and includes :                  

Coconut Oil           

Rapeseed Oil           

Castor Oil           

Olive Oil           

Sunflower Oil           

Sodium Hydroxide           

Safety Glasses           


Container to use as a mould           

Swirling stick           



Essential Oil           



These ingredients are enough to make a further 4 batches of the Soapology recipe at home to practice the skills you have learnt during the day.           


Please advise us if you want to take one of these home with you so that we can make sure we've got some ready.
