      Hi Imee, Thank you for contacting us.

      Unfortunately, we are not teaching any workshops this year. We are currently going through the process of having a new studio built and hopefully, we will be recommencing our workshops in 2021.

      We do have some soap making Kits online, these come with step by step instructions for the beginner.

      If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us. Gavin & Kim

        Hi Pricilla,
        Unfortunately, we are no longer holding any face-to-face workshops. We are in the process of converting all of our courses to digital courses that will be available online only.

        Kind regards,

    When addind the clourant I dont recall measuring/weighing it out ? is yhis correct?
    Thanks in advance
    Grace Cannavo

    • Gavin says:

      Hi Grace, yes we have modified the recipe slightly just to fit into our new silicone loaf moulds. Yes you can double the ingredients to make a double batch. I will send you the new recipe via email. The liquid colour was not measured and was added to the soap batter a little at a time to achieve the desired shade.

      • Grace Cannavo says:

        Thank you! And once again yourself and Kim have given me the confidence and information on how to make soap! I would say that you guys are the best little workshop in Melbourne!
