We really enjoyed our visit making loads of soaps. Good fun for all the family.
Thanks so much Gili, the kids and adults really enjoyed your explanations, expert guidance and patience.
We'd recommend it to anyone with a couple of hours to spare.

What a fun activity on a hot august holiday! Gili is so nice and explains the whole soap making process in an interesting and engaging way even for the little ones (one 9 year old and two 7 year olds). We all had a great time and came back with sweet smelling and beautiful soaps. My kids even were happy to use their soaps and wash up for the first time ever!

Soap-making workshop - it was great fun. We learned about the ingredients of hand-made soap, got to pick colors and scents, overall a great time. Filing, the owner and instructor is very knowledgeable and super nice.

We had such a wonderful time spending our time at the Soap cake factory. The owner, Gili was exceptional! As soon as we walked in, my daughter saw that she also had bath bombs there. So we asked if we can also learn how to make bath bombs. She immediately said yes, even though she admitted she had never given a bath bomb lesson before. And it was amazing! She was kind, fun, generous and very knowledgeable( we even had a one minute chemistry lesson about making soaps as she is a trained chemist)
The soaps themselves are luxurious and ALL natural. You will love going here! Highly recommend!

A fun, creative activity for a rainy morning. Gili is friendly, cheerful and helpful. Our three grandchildren aged 11 ,8 and 4 had a great time and went home with beautiful soaps. The grownups enjoyed it too!

My teen son is on the Autism spectrum. We are always looking for therapeutic, hands-on activities to do. Gili’s studio is bright and sunny, spacious and colorful. It’s a lovely space to spend a couple of hours in. Gili makes for a welcoming and friendly host and was very accommodating of my son’s needs. Her well trained assistant Yael, was a great teacher. Gili is running a professional business - she has everything soap makers could ever need, right at her fingertips! I highly recommend a visit. It’s a memorable experience. Our next visit will be our 4th!
Thank you Gili!
