the experience


Our enjoyable, hands on workshops demonstrate how to make either natural, additive-free soaps, balms, creams or candles at our Cosy Cottage HQ in Malton.

After a tour of our workshop, you will learn about the history, process and science of soap making. You will watch a batch being made; throughout which you will have the opportunity to take notes and ask as many questions as you like. You will then have the opportunity to make your very own product, in your choice of fragrance, to take home with you.

Tea and cake will be provided to keep you going throughout the afternoon.

We also offer bespoke workshops or demos if you can organise a group of 6-8 participants to enjoy the session.

Please contact us to discuss your preferences.


We choose the dates of our workshops around the fabulous Malton monthly food market, which takes place on the Saturday before the workshops. Malton boasts a wealth of artisan and independant traders, beautifully presented in a historic market town setting.

Many people visiting for our workshops make a weekend of it with friends. Therefore, we've put a couple of recommendations together below to help you plan your next trip to Malton.
