Saturday 28 May, 9.30am-12pm - Hands-on introduction to soap-making

Come along and learn how to make your own soap with Sonia Barrish in a workshop held at our Matatiki Toi Ora Arts Centre workshop, which is located upstairs in the former Boys’ High building at 28 Worcester Boulevard.

Sonia Barrish will show you how easy soap making can be so that you can build confidence towards making your own soap at home. Together you will make a gentle and non-drying soap that contains shea butter, coconut oil and olive oil. You will also discuss the soap making process and how to develop it to suit your needs. You will go home with a bar of soap to cure and sample.

Safety is important in this workshop as we will be working with lye. Protective glasses are supplied. Please bring reusable dish gloves to protect your hands and wear long sleeves. We also suggest that you bring along a face mask for the mixing portion of the workshop.

Children must be over 13 years and come with one adult per child. Children over 16 years old are fine to come on their own.

There are 8 places in this workshop. Minimum numbers are required for the class to run.

Sonia Barrish has a passion for living simply and sustainably. She enjoys and respects nature’s bounty and believes in making use of what can be found in nature to fulfil our everyday needs. Much of what she has learnt has been self-taught through extensive research, as well as trial & error. Sonia is now keen and ready to pass on this knowledge to others to enable their own sustainable lifestyle journeys.
