Cheeky Suds makes vegan-friendly, unusual and fun bath and body cosmetics, and was started by Chloe Morais from Brixton.
At Making Uncovered on 20 April Chloe will be showing how to make body products and teaching a workshop.
What do you like about your craft – and how did you get into it?
I started working on body products because I wanted a change of career and longed to do something more creative than what I was previously doing.
The thing I love about cosmetics is that it gives me a chance to be creative in terms of design, fragrances and product ranges. I can make anything, from soaps, lip balms and body scrubs to bath melts, creamers and soufflés. The possibilities are endless so I can always explore and add new products to my range.
I recently made soap for my brother that smells of freshly mown grass because he loves the smell. Chocolate is another favourite!
Why are you taking part in Making Uncovered?
I’m taking part because I’d like to share my craft and creativity with people who might not otherwise have the opportunity to try it for themselves. It’s also a nice way to meet lots of other crafts and local people and give something back to the community.
What will you be teaching at your workshop?
I am doing a workshop on making bath bombs. If you want to add some fun, fizz and sweet aroma to your bath time whilst learning a new craft, then my workshop will be a great place to be!
Bath bombs make bathing fun and fizzy – and smell lovely. They also make a fantastic gift to give to someone else.
Chloe’s workshop is at 11am at Making Uncovered / Brixton East Gallery, lasts 1.5 hours and costs £15. There are 6 spaces. The price includes ingredients and packaging, and you’ll be able to take everything home with you. You can book your space on Eventbrite: http://makinguncoveredworkshops.eventbrite.co.uk/
