Christmas Bath time treats workshop

Xmas: Soap, Bathbombs, and Bath Melts Day – 8 December

Join Laura for a day making a beautiful bathtime treats.

This one day course is designed for complete relaxation in the mad run-up to Christmas. Escape to the studio and make your very own soaps, bathbombs, and bath melts. Treat yourself to boxes and boxes of bathtime bubbles to last you well into the new year. Or why not create yours as beautiful gifts with the handmade touch ideal as teacher presents, or gifts for anyone who appreciates some luxury pampering.

We will make...

  • a range of soaps inspired by crystals and geodes, pick your own colour, fragrance(s) and add sparkle if you wish from our 100% biodegradable glitter. Or why not make sea glass inspired soaps for the more minimalist amongst you?
  • Bath melts, choose to make straightforward buttery melts in paper cases with a single dried rosebud adornment, or add a generous handful of oats and tie in a muslin bag with twine to create a luxurious and calming moisture rich bath without clogging your plughole! Or why not make a few of each? Choose scents to match your mood or style.
  • Bathbombs! Create and style your own bath bombs; choose your scent, add flakes of natural cocoa butter for a skin softening treat, or add salts for a geode inspired look. Fun to make and even more fun to receive and use. Add a dash of 100% biodegradable glitter if you dare!

You will take home your creations in eco friendly packaging that is 100% biodegradable even down to the 'plastic' window that is actually made from plant materials.

Ideal for friends or family to work alongside one another, great inter-generational day out. (Children between the age of six and thirteen are welcome to buy a ticket when accompanied by a full paying adult who will assume responsibility, anyone between 14 and 16 may attend solo with parental consent.)

The course includes welcome tea/coffee and Christmas treats, a delicious home made lunch of soup and bread and all materials so you don't need to bring anything at all with you.

"North West's best kept craft secret!
Inspiring, creative, relaxed, fun and a feast for the eyes - and stomach! Sue, Kris, and Laura's studio is a true gem on the North West's coastline. Along with eight friends, I have spent a most lovely afternoon Christmas crafting. I cannot recommend this place enough."


"A magical experience!
This is my second visit to this wonderful place. Sue, Laura and Kris have to be the most inspiring people on our planet. The warmth of their welcome is outstanding and their creativity spills into every niche of their beautiful studio. If you want to do something really special then visit Shore Cottage Studio- I promise it will open your eyes to what can be achieved.
Thank you once again Sue, Laura and Kris I had a lovely time with you and your cakes are to die for. Happy Christmas to you all."
