What’s it about?
A half day soap making workshop where you will make your own 100% natural cold pressed soaps the old fashioned way.
As well as having some dates scheduled in, we will run a soap making workshop on demand for either 1 or 2 people in Westwell, Kent.
What will I do on a soap making workshop?
On the day you will:
- Learn about different soap making techniques,
- Understand the characteristics of various plant oils and their benefits to the skin,
- Learn the basics of essential oils,
- Make your own natural soap using the traditional ‘cold pressed’ method.
To see which soaps you can make, take a look at Nicola’s website made by hand herbals
All of the soaps are vegan friendly.
You’ll need to leave the soap to cure for 6 weeks, after which you can either collect it or we can post it to you.
As an added extra Nicola will prepare a selection of natural, locally sourced herbal infusions for you to try out.
Please note that the cost includes includes 10 bars of cold pressed soap and the postage to send them to you once they’ve cured.
If these dates don’t work for you, get in touch and we’ll try to find one that does.

I came on this course with my Mum and we both had a fantastic time. Nicola is so knowledgeable and I learnt a lot about soap (and how much effort and planning goes into making it). It was a very relaxing day and the range of oils and scents to choose from was fantastic. I received our soaps today in the post and they all look so pretty, and smell even better! It’s lovely to have some gentle and ethical soap to use
Thoroughly enjoyed our morning having the mysteries of natural soap making explained by Nicola. Informative, fun and a relaxed pace. Looking forward to receiving our soaps in a few weeks!
I treated my mum to this for mothers day. It was a really enjoyable and informative way to spend some time together. Both of us are excited to have a go at home.
Excellent course, learning about the different infused oils and there health/skin properties are very interesting, watching the oils turn into soap was very exciting as it happens very quickly. After doing the corse i was sucseffuly able to make my own soap. Over all its a excellent course i would definitely recomend it.
