Soap making

This revitalising day with Sami Blackford, founder of Freyaluna, will enable you to explore the processes of

soap-making using natural ingredients and traditional cold-process methods.


Working in pairs, you will create a batch of soap batter which you will divide into separate moulds so that each of you leaves with a batch of approximately 1kg of soap, fragranced to your own tastes.

This course will focus on the process of soap-making so that you can leave with the knowledge and confidence to continue making soap at home.

Sami Blackford, founder of Freyaluna.jpg

Sami Blackford is the founder of award-winning botanical skincare company, Freyaluna. An alchemist, apothecary, writer, and mentor, Sami created Freyaluna in 2013 and handcrafts her pioneering range of natural skincare from a studio nestled in the North Wales countryside.


After battling with acne for many years and unsuccessfully trying every product on the market, Sami made the decision to start researching skincare in her mid 20s. Immersing herself in the world of natural and holistic skincare and wellness, she used her knowledge to begin creating skincare products that would actually care for her skin.


Freyaluna skincare products aren't grown in a lab, they're grown in the meadows, hedgerows, and woodlands of rural North Wales. Growing up in this landscape taught Sami the value and magic properties of plants, nature, and living a gentle life in tune with the seasons of the year and the seasons of life
