    I cannot tell you how much I loved this workshop! We had such fun and I met some great people. I now regularly make my own soap to sell and use in my guest house, Camissa Cottage. Zikhona is a wonderful, generous teacher and a great hostess xxx

    As an educator, who also has experience as an entrepreneur, I was so impressed and inspired by this fabulous workshop. Zikhona’s passion, professionalism and personal touch made this a really memorable and worthwhile day for me. I have attended many developmental workshops and this has, by far, been one of my favourites. It was creative, thoughtfully and expertly delivered, and I left with my package of hand-made soaps feeling like I had really accomplished something great! Under Zikhona’s motivational leadership and engaging delivery, I managed to design and produce my own unique creation. I, for one, will most certainly be returning for another session.
