Learning to make your own handmade natural cold-process soap means that you can avoid plastic waste from buying soap or body wash. you can control what ingredients are in your soap so that its great for your skin (and avoid the toxic ingredients in some skincare products). And you can safe money by making your own soap to use or for gifts.  

You might have watched a few "Youtubes" on soap making or read a book, but there is nothing like an in-person hands-on workshop to teach you to make cold-process soap. In this workshop, via hands-on experience and demonstration by the instructor, you will you will learn:

  • The basic theory and safety of cold-process soap making
  • How to weigh your lye and mix it with water
  • How to choose your oils and weigh them
  • How to choose other natural ingredients, including essential oils
  • How to mix all your ingredients and pour into soap moulds
  • How to unmould your cold-process soap

These cold-process soap making classes are taught by a chemical engineer who has been making soap for over 10 years. You can ask all the questions and go into as much detail as you would like. BUT you don’t need a chemistry degree to make soap! Anyone who can follow a basic recipe can learn to make cold-process soap.

This cold-process soap making class is perfect for beginners as it starts from the basics and shows you how to follow a soap recipe. You learn how to make natural cold-process soap from ingredients you can buy from the supermarket and hardware store, and equipment you probably already have at home. We only use natural ingredients, so you learn to make soap that is great for your skin.

If the dates or location don’t suit, you can always arrange a private workshop, email me to find out more.

I use Australia Post for all orders. I pack orders in compostable packaging - either cardboard boxes or compostable mailer bags.

Postage is calculated by weight - 500g is $10, 1kg $13, 3kg is $18 and up to 5kg is $21. I need to allow some extra weight for packaging - so for example 1kg of product will be shipped at the 3kg rate.

You will receive an email with the tracking number as soon as I have packed your order, however I may not drop it off at the post office until the following day.
