A Selection of Reviews

"Fantastic session! The ingredient pack arrived in plenty of time, Ruth made me feel at ease from the start. She gave easy to understand, step by step and clear instruction to assist learning at everyones individual pace. The session was an excellent combination and balance of practical and theoretical information. Lots of clear guidance on things like using a soap cal, plenty of hints and tips for ongoing experimentation and all questions answered informatively. The most important thing for me was to have a clear understanding and confidence around using the dreaded Lye, which was achieved and the fear has now gone with the session covering safety aspects of this. Definitely worth the fee, would highly recommend and book other courses with Ruth. Thank you for an enjoyable online session :)"  Yvonne 

"I did this course online this morning and can’t praise Ruth highly enough! I’m very glad I took this route to learn how to make soap rather than trying to do it from a book or YouTube, as I found it really helpful to have Ruth actually present to guide us through any pitfalls. After a brief history of soap-making, Ruth spent quality time explaining the ingredients and how and why each is used which I found really useful. She then made a batch of soap in front of us which was great as I really got the idea of what to do, rather than trying to flounder along and do it alongside her. We then got to make two batches for ourselves and were able to customise these as we wished, as she talked us through anything extra we wanted to add. The quantities in the kit supplied were more than generous and having Ruth there while we made our batches meant anything looking not quite as it should was easily explained and put right. Ruth was really generous with information and happy to answer all and any questions we had. I now have two completely different, beautiful batches of soap and my house smells amazing. This course was well organised, interesting and great fun to do. I am a total beginner with no previous attempts at this and would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in soap-making."  Sally
