With Saltaire Soap's Fiona Smith.
Saturday 10 November 2018: 10am - 4pm.
Participants will make bath salts, bath melts, bath bombs and bath oil from scratch, and will learn how to scent bubble bath (using a good-quality bubble-bath base). As well as the techniques to make all these products, topics covered will include choosing and blending essential oils, essential oil safety, and packaging and presentation of products. Raw materials available will include red, green and pink clay; botanicals such as dried flowers, fruit and spices; and a wide variety of essential oils that will include rose geranium, frankincense, myrrh, vetiver, pine, may chang, mandarin, fir, cypress and black pepper. Packaging will be provided, including bottles, jars, boxes, shred and dried flower petals, and there will be a variety of materials to label and decorate packaging to produce stylishly-presented bath products that will be suitable as Christmas gifts. Participants will go home with the following custom-packaged and labelled products, representing almost £50 in retail value:
Available packaging may differ slightly from the image provided, but will be just as nice!
£80 per person, includes all materials and equipment use. Complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits provided.
Suitable for beginners but also ideal for those who have done handmade toiletries courses before but are looking for a good, multi-skilled workshop to polish their skills further!
