I learnt the fundamentals of the process of soap making using natural sustainable & readily available ingredients - I never want to buy commercial chemical filled soap ever again ! I now have the skills to produce my own hard & soft soaps & washing powder & feel empowered by the whole process .

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.
