Last year I held a Melt & Pour soap making course at Just Boutique. I met a really inspiring young lady called Karen who sent a mail to all her friends about her experience at the workshop. A friend of hers, called Lucy, contacted me and said she would love us to come and teach some rural community ladies how to make soap so they can then sell it to the surrounding game lodges. What a great idea. Lucy works for the Angus Gillis Foundation.
So I am off to Grahamstown on Wednesday for a few days of intensive soap making. This will be quite a challenge as the ladies first language is not English and chemistry knowledge will be minimal at best.
They will learn how to make Cold Process soap from scratch, re batching, Melt and Pour.
