A Selection of Reviews

"This was a fabulous course to attend for beginners and anyone interested in soap making.
Definitely well worth my flight to do it. Ruth is a great teacher and extremely helpful with any questions that you may have. I have been reading soap making books for a while now but nothing can compare to getting the chance to make your own with the support of a good teacher.
Met lovely people and went home smelling the plane with the scent of my lovely soap.
Hope to get chance to do your business course Ruth.
And thank you so much again." Eilish

"I recommend this course 100%. Ruth is a true ambassador for soap making and so passionate about her craft. You cannot fail to walk away feeling inspired and more knowledgeable. The day was well structured, organised and in a great location. We learnt about the history of soap making and information on the current cold process used in hand made soap today. There was plenty of opportunity for hands on practical experience and for me this was very exciting. Thanks Ruth - you are an inspiration." Julie

"Thank you Ruth for teaching me how to make soap! Loved everything about this course - well organised, excellent clear tuition, lovely venue with space and natural light, delicious lunch, met some lovely people and came away with lots of lovely soap, instructions to use at home and the confidence to carry on making (I am busy collecting my supplies and deciding on which recipes to try next!). I would highly recommend this course, so glad I attended." Catherine
