Trainer Bio:

Irene has been making soap for herself for a few years and became interested in developing a soap to help relieve some symptoms like rashes, eczema. acne. etc. Her soap ended up being very effective on herself and her family and friends. So with a great soap recipe combined with the love of a luxurious bar of freshly scented soap, she took herself off to the markets in QLD and sold out of her soap. On her return to Melbourne, she opened an open an online organic soap store called The Soap Maker. She  visits several markets in Melbourne's South East & Gippsland and also sells her soap products online. Irene is a qualified workplace trainer and assessor and has worked in the employment and training industry.

I found the class enjoyable, however the teacher was a little hard to follow. Luckily the information sheets she put together are very good, so I read them in the break and then felt I had a better grip on what we were doing.

Irene was great. She shared so much knowledge and the whole soap making process was amazing. It was fun to make our both so different. Safety was a big feature and was reinforced throughout the day. I feel confident in what I learnt and can't wait to try this at home on my own. The facilities were pretty good but powerboards and extension cords would have been a big help. Bring your own lunch as the cafe is extremely overpriced for what you actually get.
