In Lovely Greens soap making lessons on the Isle of Man you’ll learn to make natural soap using pure oils and natural colour and fragrance.
* Cancellations made 14 days in advance will always receive a full refund. In light of the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, refunds will be issued if workshops need to be cancelled based on Isle of Man Government guidelines or if you become ill or are required to self-isolate. Those choosing to practice social distancing MUST cancel at least 14 days in advance. I’m a very small business and last minute cancellations can take their toll financially. Please be in touch if you have any questions.
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.
You may book through this website using PayPal (or your debit/credit card via PayPal) or Email Tanya for further payment options. If you’d like to purchase a general voucher for any of the open lessons in the next 12 months, you can do so here.
Two batches of your own Handmade Soap
During the lesson, you’ll learn the basics in making the 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.
On the Day
Open soap making lessons are held at the Laxey Working Men’s Institute on the Isle of Man. They begin at 2 pm and are about 2 to 2.5 hours long. Light refreshments and beverages are served afterwards so please indicate any special dietary requirements.
For the class, please bring an apron, a cardboard box/shoebox, a towel, and (optionally) an empty paper milk container. You may also bring your own soap moulds if you wish to purchase them beforehand. You can find an excellent assortment of silicone types here*.
After your soap is made you’ll take it home and cure it for a month before using it. Further information and home instructions.
