Soap and Glass Bubbles – Craft Update

I definitely had a “crafty” January!

On my post of 13 January, I posted the “before” pictures of my fused glass course and I’m excited to say that I now have the pieces back after their kiln firing. (Also discovered it is very difficult to photograph them effectively.)

After

These pictures don’t quite capture the luminescense of the pieces or the tactile feel of the glass. Needless to say I am very pleased indeed.

My latest craft adventure has been in soap making!

I went with two friends to a course run by Deb at Wild and Well Creative Workshops and discovered a whole new world. We were introduced to the basics of soap making using the melt and pour method and then set free to use our imaginations to craft soaps using colouring, mica powders and essential oils. The results are just heavenly.

I will be doing a post in the next few weeks about my fight against single use plastic in our house – attending this course was one of my initiatives to this end. Can I tell you that I’m now reaching for my gorgeous soaps instead of my shower gel bottles, even though I keep telling myself I need to use the shower gel up to free my shower of plastic. But, more about that on another post – here are my gorgeous soaps – pity you can’t smell their heavenly scent.

  1. I did pottery evening classes many moons ago and really enjoyed it. It’s lovely to hold up the end result and say ‘I did this’. The soap in the last two pics looks almost edible!
