About the Tutor:

"From a very early age I have been involved with handmade skincare products – one of my earliest memories is helping my grandmother stir the pot to make her favourite body moisturiser.

I’ve continued with crafting handmade items of different kinds, including soap. Mostly these have been for gifts or personal/family use. As my soaping skills and demand for my products has developed over time, I created a business entity (Bath Body Bliss) in 2014 for wholesale & retail sales of my soap & body products. I am NICNAS registered as a soapmaker.

I have taught soapmaking to small groups, and individuals, and in 2017 commenced working with SGSCC as a soapmaking Tutor." Shirlee
