Introduction to Natural Soap-making

13/05/2017 - 14/05/2017

This hands-on class provides a detailed introduction to soap making techniques that will equip you with the skills to make your own beautifully scented, natural products. Led by soap-maker extraordinaire Mel Hurst you will assist in making milk & roses bar soap, vanilla olive oil soap as well as learning how to create other skincare products in the ambient setting of Alberton's Victorian ballroom. 

Falling on Mother's Day weekend, (one class each day on Saturday and Sunday) this experience provides the chance to spend time with mum in the historical setting of this beautiful 1863 homestead and would make a lovely gift.
