With all this hand washing going on, what could be more appropriate than learning to make stunning handmade soaps?! And bar soaps are eco-friendly too, helping to go packaging-free and having a far better carbon footprint than bottled liquid soaps.
We’ll post out kits in advance of the e-event containing everything needed. Guests will receive a melter, moulds, ingredients, fragrances, colours and tools.
Hosted by our expert soap maker, guests will be guided through each step from preparing the mould, melting the soap, adding dyes and fragrances and creating stunning visual effects.
Ingredients have already gone through the saponification process so there are no dangerous chemicals to worry about. Guests can simply enjoy the artistic side of creating fun designs.
Guests can make a range of soaps such as a novelty rubber duck soap, loofah soap, soap with embedded shapes and cake soaps using natural colours and fragrances.
For an added team building element we can arrange guests into teams and challenge them to come up with a name and brand for their soaps, similar to a task seen on “the Apprentice”. We can put them into break out rooms where they can talk privately with their team mates and then pitch their new soap range to the judges and the rest of the team.
At the end of the activity guests will have a beautiful set of soaps to give as gifts or to make hand washing more fun! They will also get to keep the equipment so they can make more soaps and spread the germ-free joy!
