Tpod C - Learning Hub The University of Northampton


This event is part of a series called ‘So, here’s the thing…’ which gives people an opportunity to talk to an audience about a subject they are passionate about.

Hosted by The University of Northampton, students, staff and members of the public are all welcome.

Do you know what goes into a bar of soap or how it is made?

Fancy having a go at making your own soap and want to learn what it involves?

Join Joanne Farmer (Academic Librarian) to find out all about soap making, including typical ingredients, processes, jargon used and some of the ethical issues that Joanne explored before making their own products. Other than soap, you will hear about the new trend of making shampoo bars and the different types you may come across.
