Would you like to learn how to make your own natural bar soap?

I have created this class to teach you how to confidently formulate and make your own natural soap step by step.

I am currently offering this workshop either live on Koh Phangan, Thailand or online via Zoom 1-1 or in small groups of maximum 3 people.

Timing
The course and the soap making itself will take up about 3 hours, but best if no one has to rush somewhere afterwards, as we might finish earlier or later, depending on how we progress.

What you will learn?
  • Safety guidelines
  • How to calculate confidently the recipe of your soap
  • To make a basic soap batch of your own design
