On this two-day soap-making and skin-care course with Jenny Smith from The Scottish Soapworks, you will learn how to make traditional cold process soap, organic 'melt and pour' glycerine soap, lip balms, and hand and body cream.
You will discuss marketing ideas, ingredient and packaging suppliers, equipment, recipe creation, costs and legislation, and will receive a detailed information pack.
Your cold process soap will remain with Jenny for 3 weeks for curing, and will then be cut and packaged for sending to you by post (please allow 4-5 weeks). You will take the other products you make home with you on the day.
All materials plus refreshments and a sandwich style lunch are included in the price. You can also book further 1:1 follow-up sessions with Jenny if needed. If you have another colleague who would like to attend with you, a second space can be booked at a 20% discount: please let us know when booking.
This course is booked at a date to suit you, so please contact us to discuss availability.
If you need overnight accommodation we have one, en-suite double bedroom available at the venue - please email Lynn for availability and prices.
Please note that The Arienas Collective experiences are run from a first-floor space and unfortunately we do not have lift access.
