'Enjoy a day out with friends whipping up some handmade soaps - the perfect gift or a special treat for you'
Join us in our Malton, Navigation Wharf workshop (see below for google maps link) for a glorious, relaxing afternoon of palm oil free soap-making! Make six bars of your own signature, cold process soap to take home.
We have had outstanding feedback from past participants and are delighted to have scheduled our workshops for 2024. Due to the popularity of these workshops, early booking is recommended.
In our spacious premises in Navigation Wharf, Yorkersgate, next to the Talbot Hotel, Malton, we are very happy to be able to host up to ten participants, to make six, lovely bars of palm oil free soap, each, bearing your own signature fragrance, made from a blend of essential oils.
You will make your palm oil free soap from vegetable oils and waxes using the cold process soap-making method. No melt-and-pour synthetic soap bases here! Your will then personalise your soap using dried flowers, fruit, exfoliants and fragrances.
