Cold Process Soap Making Workshop

What you'll learn

Learn how to make your own organic soap with our Home DIY courses in Sydney!

This hands-on soap-making course in Sydney will teach you how to craft your own artisan soaps using Melt & Pour and Cold Process techniques. 

Industrially produced soaps are often a bit like junk food - containing lots of nasty chemicals and strange ingredients! Why not make your own eco-friendly soap, where you can choose ingredients which are kind on your skin - and kind on the planet, too!

Under the guidance of your experienced tutor, you'll make 3 batches of Cold Process soap formulations, including lots of skin-nourishing natural oils, butter and milk; embellished with colourful micas or clays; and lovingly scented with pure essential oils or fragrance oils. 

You'll also learn insider tips and tricks for making and decorating your own home-made soaps, and where to source ingredients and buy equipment. Soon, you'll be making your own soaps at home, creating wonderful self-care treats and thoughtful gifts for loved ones.

Whether you're looking to craft gifts for loved ones or start your own small soap-making business, this workshop will provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to get started.

Join us and embark on a creative, sustainable, and satisfying journey in the world of DIY soap-making!
