On this one-day, hands-on workshop with Jenny Smith from The Scottish Soapworks, you will cover the soap-making methods in detail including: ingredients; suppliers; equipment; safety issues; recipes and essential oils. And you will leave with a pack of information including details of suppliers, legislation on creating recipes, and practical hints and tips.
Our business workshops are arranged at a time to suit, so please contact us to arrange a date and to discuss any questions you may have. The contents of the day are flexible, and there is a choice about which products to make which can include cold process soap, organic glycerine 'melt and pour' soap, liquid soap and other skincare products such as hand/body cream and lip balms.
There is also the option to book a two-day course so that you are able to cover making more products, and/or to add time to discuss creating a new brand or identify if your are planning to start a new business.
If you wish to cover making more than one or two products, or would like to add on getting advice and on developing a unique brand identity, we have a two-day business course option.
The price includes all materials, access to all the equipment you will need, refreshments and lunch; plus handouts.
Please note that The Arienas Collective experiences are run from a first-floor space and unfortunately we do not have lift access.

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.
