Learn the Magic and Art of Soapmaking

Follow the Magic


The venue was lovely, the information was great, delivery professional. There was a good selection of essential oils to add to the recipe. Really enjoyed it, thank you

I had a great time at the soap making workshop yesterday! Lily was eloquent, knowledgeable and patient with us and made the experience enjoyable. I look forward to using my very own vegan soap once it’s cured!

I have to recommend Green Fig Soap Studio's fantastic soap making workshop. I learned loads from Lily, ate lovely cakes, and most importantly created some gorgeous smelling sandalwood and orange soap to take home.


Can't recommend this course highly enough. When we arrived we got a warm welcome, a cuppa and some delicious cakes. Lily gave us a great introduction to the history of soap making, then showed us how the process works, after which we got to dive in and make our own soaps. There was a great selection of natural scents, colours and things to decorate our bars with. My soap is currently curing in a cupboard and every time I open it there is this gorgeous smell. I can't wait to use it! I'll definitely book again and bring a friend.

I really enjoyed the Green Fig course with Lily, who really knows a lot about soap making! I enjoyed learning how people made soap in the past as well as the chemistry behind it. I had great fun with combining colours and smells and who knew there were so many ways to decorate soap? Lily is full of ideas for different techniques and I’m loving seeing pictures of how each of the bars have turned out, so different, so tasty looking! I’d definitely like to do the advanced course and try different combinations and techniques, I’m hooked.

I attended a course with Lily from the Green Fig Soap Studio and I loved it!! She is so knowledgeable and making soap with her was great fun! I got to take home soap that I made myself, which is great, and I will definitely be looking at going to the advanced class in the future. I cant recommend enough!!
