On this Introduction to glycerine (melt and pour) soap-making experience with local designer-maker Jenny Smith of The Scottish Soapworks you will learn about the properties of our organic glycerine soap and selection of essential oils; and how to chop, melt, blend and pour your soap into shapes and sizes of your choice.
As your soap is setting, we'll take a short tea/coffee break. Then you will select your chosen decorative features and packaging from our craft table, and gift wrap the soaps you have made into beautiful treats ready to take home to enjoy, or as unique, truly hand made gifts for family and friends.
This workshop is the morning session of the full-day Introduction to soap and skincare making workshop.
Price: £45 per person including all materials and refreshments.
Please note that The Arienas Collective experiences are run from a first-floor space and unfortunately we do not have lift access. Please inform us of any skin or food allergies when booking.
Introduction to Glycerine Soap-Making: 17 November 10.30am-1.30pm
The Arienas Collective experiences are run from a supportive and welcoming home environment in the Edinburgh New Town. Spaces are limited to allow our artists and designer-makers to offer hands-on help and support. All equipment is provided and all the materials you will need (unless stated otherwise). Just turn up, leave any day-to-day worries behind, and immerse yourself in creating something unique.
Refreshment breaks are an important part of The Arienas Collective experiences. They are a time to socialise, make new friends and chat to the artists and designer-makers. We are fortunate to have a fantastic range of independent shops and producers nearby and are proud to feature locally sourced food and drinks.
The price includes all materials and refreshments, and of course you get to take home all the unique products you have created.
All our experiences are also available to book as a private group for up to 8 people. If you would like to book an experience for a larger number please email us.
