FAQs

I hope I will have answered your most common questions here but if not please drop me an email or get in touch via Facebook or Instagram messages.

Can I book my son or daughter on a course with me?  Unfortunately all the soap making workshops are only suitable for adults of 18 plus due to the nature of the ingredients involved and my insurance company! There are however various Melt and Pour Soap Making Kits available which are ideal for children as the tricky bit has already been done for them.

Can I book a private workshop? Yes of course you can. I ask that there is a minimum of 2 persons to make this viable for me and generally it will be around 2 rather than 3 hours for the half day course but you do get the benefit of far more 1 to 1 instruction and the opportunity to ask questions at will. If you would like a 1 to 1 workshop that is absolutely fine - the cost will be £130 as for 2 persons but this is an ideal solution if you would like to delve in to more background information, perhaps if you are considering starting your own soap business. Just drop me an email or DM with your requirements and I will see what I can do!

How many people can book on to a work shop? A maximum of 6 but I have seating for 8 so if a couple of you would like to share a spot that is absolutely fine - and you can just take home half the amount of soap! There are certain points in the process that I need to keep a really close eye so if I do any more than 6 there would be too much waiting around in between and I can't have you getting bored :)

Can I use my soap straight away? Unfortunately no. You are looking at a minimum 4 week cure for cold process and ideally 2 weeks for hot process. But they do say patience is a virtue :) 

Can I buy ingredients on the day to make more soap while the process is still fresh in my mind? Yes you can! For £22 you can take home a batch of butters/oils, a blend of essential oils and a bottle of lye which will allow you to make another 1200g approx of soap at home plus enough lye left over to make another 6 batches. And yes I take cards! 

I am not very creative/science minded. Will I be able to do it? As long as you can weigh accurately and follow instructions yes you will definitely be able to make soap. All students leave saying they feel they would have the confidence to make more soap at home.
