We use soap so much in our daily lives, so we might as well make it the best soap it can be! This workshop is led by Zero Waste and soap maker enthusiast Bottega Zero Waste. During this session you will start off by learning the basics behind soap making, including how to formulate your own recipes. Then you'll get to the fun bit and learn how to customise the colour and scent of your soup, making this a truly personalised and educational session.
You'll walk away from this session knowing all the steps on how to make your own soap from scratch, what materials you need to replicate it at home, as well as some handmade soap AND a mould! This session will be perfect for anyone looking to sustainably create their own washing products or just those wanting to know how to make the most amazing handmade gifts for their loved ones!
Important: this class involves making soap from scratch which means handling some caustic materials (sodium hydroxide). We will teach you all the safety measures and provide you with goggles, aprons and gloves. However if you feel uncomfortable handling this ingredient, we can carry this step out for you!
Do I need to Bring Anything:
No, it's all provided for you, including a mould for you to take home to make more soup.
All our workshops include unlimited tea, coffee and we always have plenty of cake on offer at every workshop and vegan friendly biscuits. If you require gluten free sweet treats please let us know!
