Join me in one of these interactive soap-making workshops for beginners that will be hosted in Johannesburg during October and November.

BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL!
The cost includes the 3-hour soap-making lesson, all safety wear, ingredients and equipment that you will need, and the soap that you made during the workshop. There will also be snacks and refreshments served. Please remember to wear closed shoes and to bring a shoe box or plastic container to transport your soaps home!
There will only be 3 spaces available per session ensuring loads of personal attention (if you want it!) Book all 3 slots and receive an automatic 10% discount on the total cost of the tickets.
No children under 13 can be accommodated - I will be teaching you to work with hazardous chemicals (lye) and this is not the most suitable environment for young children.
Using a variety of natural oils and butters, we will be making a basic cold-processed soap recipe suitable for all skin types. You will choose your own essential oils, colours and moulds and can also select between a variety of natural soap additives to make the recipe truly your own! This is not a melt-and-pour class and we will be making the cold-processed soap from scratch. You should be able to take the finished soap bars home with you after the class, but if the soap takes a bit longer to set we also offer a collection or courier delivery service free of charge. The soap will continue to cure over a 4 - 6 week period and will only get better with age.
Come learn a new skill and impress your friends and family with handmade gifts that they can actually use!
