Our workshop is nestled in the beautiful village of Far Sawrey in the heart of Beatrix Potter Country and next to Windermere. Our carefully curated masterclasses offer you the unique opportunity to explore the world of candle and soap making.

At Pure Lakes, we have been dedicated to creating skincare products that harness the power of nature for over a decade. Now, we invite you to step into our world and join us in learning the secrets of crafting your very own candles and soaps using only the finest natural ingredients.

This is a fully immersive experience, allowing you to get your hands dirty (or rather, waxy and soapy) as you create your very own products. Additionally you can enjoy some locally sourced produce, visit our state of the art workshop and purchase complementing products at a discount. The best part? You get to take home your handmade candles and soaps as mementos of your Lake District adventure.

Soap masterclasses start 21st February 2024
