Lasting approximately 60 - 90 minutes depending upon which tutorial you have purchased, you will be able to watch me explain the process and then demonstrate how to make a batch of soap from scratch as well as have the opportunity to ask as many questions as you need to . And most importantly you are invited to join my students only facebook group where I am on hand to answer questions that may crop up when you make your own soap and invariably they will.
The 90 minute beginner workshops explain everything you need to know and I cover a little of the science (not boring I promise) equipment, the different butters and oils that can be used, health and safety ( slightly boring but vital!)
There are 2 beginner options 1. Traditional Cold Process 2. Hot Process (slow cooker required. )
The 60 minute classes are more for specific soaps such as salt and milk soaps and although I will be covering some of the basics it would be better not to start with these as they will not cover enough to give you the confidence to go it alone.
Find out more about how it works in this video.
Upon purchase you will receive a pdf download with some brief details and an equipment and ingredients list. No items are sent to you through the post. (See below) I do not recommend you try and follow along at the same time but watch the tutorial and ask questions along the way so that you have a great understanding before you work through the process yourself. Think Jamie Oliver cooking demo and you will get my drift.
Unfortunately I am unable to send out ingredient packs due to one of the ingredients (sodium hydroxide) being classed as dangerous goods and Royal Mail will not carry it. It is however readily available in DIY stores such as B & Q or via soap suppliers such as The Soap Kitchen. If you need more help with this please let me know. I have kept the ingredients used in the workshops to a minimum and often easily accessible in your own kitchen whilst still ensuring you can make a beautiful bar of soap.
You will receive your zoom invite link a couple of days before the day. Please double check you have input the correct email address to ensure you receive all the details.
To access the course you will need
Classes will be a group zoom giving you the opportunity to learn from everyone else's questions too and interact with fellow soap lovers.
Video is not a requirement, you can turn your video and microphone off when entering the call if you do not want to be visible. I won't be offended I promise and you can still ask questions by typing in the chat.
Following on from the tutorial you will be able to access my private facebook support group where I will be on hand to offer any additional support you may need and answer questions. I also love it when you share your soap making pictures with the rest of us too.
