Soap Making Lessons on the Isle of Man
Making your own soap is a creative and useful skill to have and once you learn how, you can make your own bars of natural soap for personal use or to give as gifts to friends and family. Read reviews of this workshop here.
In this class you’ll make two batches (10-12 bars) of handmade soap using pure oils, natural fragrance, natural colours, and dried flowers and botanicals. After the class you’ll take your soap home, slice it into bars, cure it, and be on your way to being self-sufficient in cold-process soap making.
Two batches of your own Handmade Soap
During the lesson you’ll learn the basics in making the first batch and then move straight into making a second batch after finishing the first. In making both you’re able to choose your own fragrance and colours.
Some of the essential oils you can choose from include: Lavender, Patchouli, Citronella, Lemongrass, Peppermint, Rosemary, Sandalwood, Ylang Ylang, or you could go for pure and unscented. Dried flowers and minerals can also be used to decorate and to naturally color your bars.
Choose to book your own private lesson (£65), private group lesson for you and your friends (£39-49pp), or join an open class (£39). If you book a private lesson for yourself and friends, prices per person are £49 for groups of two to three and £39 for a group of four.
Open classes are mixed groups that are open to anyone to book into to. That means that if you’re booking a place for yourself, you will be learning with up to three other people. They’re held on the last Saturday of the month so be in touch if you’d like to book a place.
Classes are held on Clay Head Road in Baldrine on the Isle of Man and the duration is about 2 to 2.5 hours. Light refreshments and beverages will be served afterwards so please indicate if there are any special dietary requirements.
For the class, please bring an apron, a cardboard box/shoe box, and (optionally) an empty paper milk container. You may also bring your own soap moulds if you wish to purchase them beforehand. Silicone muffin trays are perfect!
