Cold Process Soap Class with Natural Clays & Botanicals

Make your own soap in this fun class!

Join us for an engaging and hands-on Cold Process Soap Making Workshop where you will learn the traditional art of making soap bars from scratch. In this affordable class, you will get to make a 1kg soap loaf which can be cut into 8 bars of soap.

What You'll Learn:

  • The basics of cold process soap making, including safety measures and techniques.
  • How to work safely with sodium hydroxide (lye), an essential ingredient, you can't make soap without it!
  • Understanding the saponification process and its importance in soap making
  • The benefits of superfatting your soap and how to do it
  • How to incorporate fragrance oils for custom scents
  • Learn about the nourishing aspects of each oil and why we use them in our base recipe
  • Learn about the unique properties and benefits of various clays, allowing you to customise your soap to suit your skin type.
  • Learn how to blend all of your ingredients together until you reach trace
  • An introduction to natural exfoliants and decorative toppings like petals and seeds
  • Techniques for insulating and curing your soap for the best results
  • How to troubleshoot common soap making issues, such as separation and soda ash

Your soap will need to cure in it's mould for 24-48 hours. For those who wish to take their soap loaf home on the day, we offer the option to purchase the mould for $15. If you choose this option, you can keep your soap in the mould for transport and curing at home. Additionally, if you decide to join us for another soap-making class, you will receive a $15 discount on your next session to refill your mould.

Alternatively, if you prefer not to purchase the mould, you are welcome to leave your soap with us to cure, and you can come back to collect your soap at a later date.


On the day of the class, we will be using caustic soda, also known as lye, which is an alkaline chemical. Please note that due to the nature of this ingredient, the class is not suitable for pregnant women. Lye is a crucial component in the soap-making process as it reacts with oils through saponification, transforming them into soap. Without lye, it is impossible to create soap. However, rest assured that the saponification process fully neutralises the lye, so there is no caustic soda in the finished product. For safety reasons, all participants will be required to wear a face mask when handling lye. If you have a face mask, please bring it with you; otherwise, we will provide masks on the day.
