Soap Making

CCOM 1234

Making your own natural soap is a great hobby and makes for wonderful custom gifts! Natural soap can also be helpful in treating some skin conditions. Learn all about the history and the science behind soap, while making your own custom cold process and bastille soaps, using natural additives for colour and skin conditioning, along with aromas of your choice.

At the end of the workshop, you’ll have your very own batch of soap (approx. 10 bars), a reusable soap mould and a custom recipe created by you to take home.


All soap materials are provided.

Note: For safety and hygiene reasons, please wear long sleeves, and bring an apron, safety goggles, and rubber/latex (dishwashing) gloves. If you have a stick blender and/or kitchen scales, it would be helpful. Otherwise, you can share equipment.

Teens must be accompanied by an adult, as caustic chemicals will be used in the process.
