Hello and Welcome !
Naturel * Convivialité * Bien-être * Plaisir * Découverte
You may be looking for a new hobby or launch into a new career or perhaps you're curious to unleash your creativity and tap into the ancient alchemy of cold-process soap making. What ever your reason, you've come to the right place.
Nestled on the ramparts of the 9th century Occitane village of Caylus (so named after the Roman Emperor Cail and Lutz meaning fire on the hill) is found our artisan family business where small batches of hand-craft soap are created inspired by the stunning local landscape.
Let me introduce myself. My name is Jacqueline. I am a self-confessed soap artist, alchemist and tutor and love nothing more
than to guide people just like you towards their own soap and glory know-how. So no matter whether you are a complete beginner or a soap-making queen (or king), you can rest assured that your investment of hard earned cash will reap the rewards you so deserve.
My "Savonnerie" is an integral part of my 12th century home that also doubles up as a boutique B&B which means that should you require accommodation, I can offer you really competitive rates that combines the course of your choice with superior lodgings.
Our workshops never exceed 3 people at any one time to ensure you get the best of my attention, know-how and expertise. You'll learn how to do what I do in a friendly, fun packed learning environment giving you the confidence to re-create your own soap art in your own kitchen.
Come and see for yourself why people from the world over come to discover the soap making secrets my competitors don't want you to know by following one or more of my 5 star rated courses. I'm truly proud that some former students are now my competitors !
One last thing, except for the Professional Course, all soap making equipment, raw materials, botanicals, fragrances and personal protection items are included in the prices you'll see below. Questions? Simply get in touch !

EXPRESS KIDS WORKSHOP
Visiting the area this summer (2019) looking for activities suitable for children. Stumbled upon Jacqueline's "express kids course" so booked my 2 little rascals in for the afternoon workshop.
They loved it and were thrilled with the clear soap with a goldfish inside presented in a see-through bag that resembled a win at a fairground ! Amazingly great value. Thank you Jacqueline
