We are a team made by me and my partner. We're very passionate about rural life style, natural products and cosmetics, for this reason we started to create our home made soaps, and we discover so many advantages to do it by ourselves.

My partner is more fascinated about the production,
I'm the artist, so I love create new fragrances, natural coloration, and hand carved our soaps.

We would love to teach to others to do the same, it's very fun and it's a great indoor activity.

Where you'll be

We will conduct our workshop in our house, in the living room with the kitchen open space. We'll work mostly in the kitchen and at the table.
The house is in a rural context, in the West Irish Coast. As we are a small farm, you'll see also a lot of animals. We try to be the most sustainable as possible, and also plastic free. We're also a B&B.

Can't believe how much we learnt in just 90minutes from the history of soap and different ways it's used culturally across the globe to diving into to a practical workshop making our own personalised soaps using the cold process. Left with 8 bars of soap each and the skills to have a go ourselves, can't wait!

Barbara and Mike were the most lovely, easy going and welcoming hosts. We were treated to tea and some delicious home baked treats while they spoke to us about the history and methods of soap making. They were very informative, knew a lot about the subject, and were very interesting to listen to. The process of making our own personalised natural soaps was very fun and interactive. All the safety precautions were also taken by the hosts. They offered to keep their pets away, but my partner and I love animals, so getting to pet their dog and see their cats and alpacas was a plus for us. Their beautiful home was also set in a stunning location. Barbara and Mike were genuinely lovely and we will be staying in contact with them to update them on making our own soaps. The workshop is suitable for all ages and we highly recommend doing it to everyone!

Such a fun experience making soaps with Barbara and Mike. Would recommend for couples or solo travelers. Being new to the craft, we found it easy to follow instructions and they even made recommendations for blending different scents together which made it easy and fun.
