What you'll do

Join me for a workshop in which I share with you the secrets of the ancient art of soapmaking. You’ll learn how to make nourishing, beautifully-scented soaps from a blend of vegetable oils. Each participant will produce their own personalised soap using ingredients including pure essential oils and herbs. People have been making soap for thousands of years, blending oils, herbs and fragrances to create cleansing agents that remove impurities and care for the skin. I’ll give you a basic introduction into the art of fragrance blending and you can create your own scent for your soap according to your preferences. Finally, you’ll leave with the soap you have created, an unforgettable, evocative souvenir of your experience.

Where you'll be

We’ll meet in my perfumed workshop in the back of my soap shop “1000&1Seife”, where I create and sell my soap. Located in the beautiful, residential district of Karlshorst, we’re 7 stops by S-Bahn from Alexanderplatz. The journey takes 25 minutes, including a 4-minute walk from the station.
