Thanks to people like Kirstie Allsop there is a huge revival in homemade crafts and there is a large number of people worldwide who have a love of craft as their hobby; be it quilting, machine embroidery or felting.

I have discovered soap making and at the moment am addicted. Look out for little homemade soap packages in our bedrooms with an option to buy to take home.

I have also discovered that the beautiful Cockington Manor in Torquay offers a soap making workshop and working with them have put together a two night bed and breakfast package which includes learning this new skill here in Devon at the Cockington Manor.

The price per person based on a two night stay bed and breakfast and attendance of a craft workshop will be from 85 depending on season. There would also be an option for an evening meal. The maximum number of people for attendance would be 12 so get like minded friends or family together and have a fun break learning a new skill.
