Blackthorn - The Herbal Washbag

Spend the weekend in idyllic surroundings whilst participating in very hands-on learning. This course teaches you to make your own soap, balm and toothpaste with a few extras thrown in. Make your own washing products that are wild, and still work!

Arrive Friday 7pm

The first evening is just a delicious dinner prepared by your instructors and a chance to get to know each other. We feel it is important to have time on arrival to unpack, explore and relax to get into the spirit so we will simply go through with you what's happening over the weekend.

Saturday starts at 9 am with the day devoted to soap. Not only will you learn the actual manufacture process but our talented herbalist/soapmaker will guide you towards creating the right soap flavour for you, whether it's for dry skin or to help you sleep. Finally you will forage for your own packaging for the chicest soap around.

Sunday looks at balms, and let's hope its balmy! The morning will be all about making your own lip balm or muscle rub using essential oils and the afternoon looks at dental health with the opportunity for making toothpaste. All the products you make will be yours to take away and use or would make lovely gifts.

Finish Sunday 4pm

This course costs £250 per person including catering and accommodation.
