Soap Making Lessons on the Isle of Man
In Lovely Greens soap making lessons you’ll learn to make natural soap using pure oils and natural colour and fragrance. Lessons are on the Isle of Man and are available as group or private workshops.
Making your own soap is a creative and useful skill to have and once you learn how, you can make your own bars of natural soap for personal use or to give as gifts to friends and family. Read reviews for Lovely Greens soap making lessons here.
In the lesson you’ll make two batches (10-12 bars) of handmade soap using pure oils, natural fragrance, natural colours, and dried flowers and botanicals. After the class you’ll take your soap home, slice it into bars, cure it, and be on your way to being self-sufficient in cold-process soap making.
Two batches of your own Handmade Soap
During the lesson you’ll learn the basics in making a first batch of soap. Afterwards, you move straight into making a second batch. In making both you’re able to choose your own fragrance and colours.
Some of the essential oils you can choose from include: Lavender, Patchouli, Citronella, Lemongrass, Peppermint, Rosemary, Sandalwood, Ylang Ylang, or you could go for unscented. Dried flowers and minerals can also be used to decorate and to naturally colour your bars.
Choose to book your own private lesson (£95), private group lesson for you and three friends (£156), or join an open class (£39pp). Pricing is made clear in the drop down menu you use to place your order.
Flexible dates and times are available for private lessons. Get in touch if you’d like to discuss ideas.
Open classes are mixed groups that are open to anyone to book into to. That means that if you’re booking a place for yourself, you will be learning with up to three other people. They’re generally held on the last Saturday of the month so be in touch to confirm dates either before or after your purchase.
