On this packaging-conscious Introduction to soap and skincare making workshop with Jenny from The Scottish Soapworks, you will combine learning new skills with treating yourself to a relaxing day in our welcoming, home-based workshop space creating a personal pamper kit.
You will learn about the properties of The Scottish Soapworks shampoo bars, lip balms and creams. You will mould a selection of travel-friendly shampoo bars - an eco-friendly, plastic-free option to bottled shampoos; blend a rich, carrot oil Vitamin C cream; and pot up a beeswax lip balm. All made with pure essential oils and natural flavourings and colours.
Once your shampoo bars have set, you will collate your shampoo and skincare products to create a personal pamper pack perfect for travelling, and ready to re-fill.
The price includes access to all the equipment you will need, all materials, welcome refreshments and a buffet style lunch. Following the workshops, you will be emailed a set of workshop handouts so that you are able to make your own refills at home.
Please note that The Arienas Collective experiences are run from a first-floor space and unfortunately we do not have lift access.
Introduction to shampoo and skincare making: 19 April 2020 10.30am-4.
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 welcome refreshments, and on our full day workshops we include a buffet style lunch. And of course you take home all the unique products you create.
All our experiences are also available to book as a private group, and most can be brought to you too. Please email us for more information.
