Robyn began making soap in October 2004 after finding commercial soap was giving her dry, itchy skin. Her own soap brought her instant relief and her skin felt normal again. Bitten by the soapmaking bug her hobby became a business within three months. Robyn 12 years later has moved her business “Robyn’s Soap House” out of home and into a factory space in Knoxfield where her soap bars and liquid soaps are still handmade and are sold in Shops, on the Internet, Overseas and at 12 Farmer’s Markets a month. She now has the help of her husband, son and a few casual workers when needed. Robyn is a qualified trainer and loves to take workshops where she can share her passion and extensive knowledge of soapmaking with others.

I really enjoyed the soap making class with Robyn. She was friendly and professional, and gave us all the information we needed from her many years of experience in soap making, to give us the confidence to go and make our own at home. The other participants in the class were lovely and we had fun! I am going to definitely be making our own soap and laundry powder from now on. Robyn also taught us how to make liquid soap, I think I'll give that a go in time. It's great to know how to make natural soap, with no nasties, and save a dollar or two in the process! I came from Tassie to do this class, but I still think it was value for money :)
We learnt how to make a variety of soaps that we can make easily at home. It was a wonderful class and I now feel confident making my own soap without supervision.
Bi really enjoyed this class with Dorris. Not only did she teach us the fundamentals in soap making, but where we could take it from there giving us an insight into more advanced skills, and what else the soap basics could be used for. Dorothy also covered ways to make dishwashing detergent, laundry detergent, dishwashier powder and tablets, and more. Dorris was informative, engaging.and fun!
