SWHertsSkills ramps up for more practical workshops

Over the past months you will have perhaps read about (or seen, or even attended) some of the practical workshops that we have been hosting as part of SWHertsSkills. Let me first say that these aren't the only workshops going on... there is an excellent "arty evening" at the Kitchen Croxley and many others too...

However... we are ramping up. Under the excellent supervision of Ruth Lee we are expanding into some new areas...

Liquid Soap is going to make its Debut

You may have seen the various soaps (cold moulded) that we have been making... different colours, different scents and different moulds too (not shown). These are excellent soaps, make great gifts and are incredibly moisturising too.

However, lots of people prefer Liquid Soaps... you know... the ones that come in those plastic dispensing bottles. Liquid soap comes in lots of options... hand soap, shower gel / soap, shampoo even...

Debi King (enormously talented local lady) has already trail blazed with Liquid soaps making some over the past weekend... we look forward to integrating her learning into the sessions being put together.


Bottle Crafting

We have now obtained two bottle cutters. This is an exciting extension to the activities we are already hosting through SWHertsSkills

The cut bottles can be used for all manner of things from storing kitchen utensils on a work surface to a desk tidy... plant holders... or even making candles in...

No need to throw those bottles out now... let's reuse them and upcycle to make wonderful gifts, or for use around the home... no need to buy more new things when we have the raw ingredients already...

On the left hand side you can see bottles can be used as containers for smaller candles or... we can actually make the candle in the bottle itself...

Lots more ideas though... excited to explore the possibilities and putting together an album of what can be achieved...


WhatsApp Groups

We have already started a WhatsApp group for "CandleMaking" if you would like to keep up to date with events and what's happening with candle making locally then search for the "CandleMaking" group and ask to join!

We are running 3 candle making sessions in April... but there may well be 4 per month going forward.
