Franschhoek Wine Valley

Craft your own homemade soaps workshop at Babylonstoren

R700 p.p.

18 August 2021, 10:00 – 15:00

Presented by Bev Missing

Only 15 places available

For this workshop we invite Bev Missing, founder of the luxury bath and body brand Rain, author of The Rain Book of Natural Soapmaking and close friend of the Babylonstoren family, to teach you all the skills necessary for soapmaking. The workshop will start with harvesting fragrant herbs such as rosemary and rose geranium, specially grown on the farm for their essential oils. Guests are then invited to our distillery to observe the process of distilling essential oil. With all this knowledge in hand, you’ll get a chance to make your own unique soap. Bring an old hand towel to wrap up your handmade wares to take home.

Steaming coffee from our Lekker Room is served upon arrival.
Lunch at the Tasting Room is included.
