You will arrive at Green Cart Farm, after a quick meet and greet with the other guests we will begin foraging for perfume ingredients and flowers from the hedgerows, our fields and garden. Once we have collected enough botanicals we will go to the distillery and extract the essential oils and hydro lats we need to fragrance the soap with an old copper still. After distillation we will go through the basics of soap making, choose and blend the oils, fragrances, additives and lye into an all natural soap which can be personalised with natural colours, dried flowers, botanicals and spices. As soap takes 12 weeks to cure we will make a second, high glycerine soap that can be used right away. Once the soaps are set and cut you can package your soaps. You will have 2 batches that can be cut up into 12 guest soaps or 6 family bars. The class ends with a Q&A until you are confident to try soap making at home. Once the course is complete you will wander with the other guests to one if our Shepherds Huts for a lovely afternoon tea with cucumber sandwiches, scones, patisserie, coffee, tea and refreshments.
