What Can I Expect

Get crafty with our online soap making course!  These packages include the downloadable course documents, e-learning by video and a one-to-one live zoom session. If you want to know how to make soaps in your own home, this is the online course for you.

Paula, the founder of Old Bexley Soap Co, is your host and tutor for this online learning package. Having grown up nurturing the vines on her family's small-holding in the Pyrenees, Paula has developed and cultivated her own business using natural ingredients to make small-batch soaps and other toiletries.

Now she is lifting the lid on her creative talents by sharing her experiences with you. Her main soap making video tutorial is accessible online at any time for subscribers and, using the course handbook, you can work your way through the teaching at your own pace.

If you're wondering what you need to safely make your own soaps at home, Paula has devised an ingredients and utensils list to make it easy for you. In essence, making soap is all about the choice of oils and fragrances that you use. You'll also need handy things like a blender, bowls and moulds.

The online teaching covers the science of soap, as well as giving you advice on colour and botanicals that you can add. For example, not all oils or fragrances are suitable for making soap and quality can vary, so Paula will talk about where to source your ingredients from.

Having looked at the handouts and the video tutorial, you can book a time in with Paula for your Zoom meeting. You'll have an hour with the soap-making expert online, so you can ask all the questions you want and coaching will be totally geared to you and what you want to recap or learn.

If you fancy turning your hobby into business, this comprehensive online soap-making course also covers the steps you need to take to be able to sell the hand-crafted soaps you make. This could be the start of something new for you!
