Event Details

Land of Oak & Iron are excited to host the next of our regular ‘Meet the Maker‘ events at the Heritage Centre in Winlaton Mill.  Our next Meet the Maker is Frances from The Nines Soap Works.

The Nines Soap Works is a small family run, artisan soap works based in Washington. It’s run by Frances Denton who hand makes all the soaps using the age-old traditional cold process method and all natural ingredients.

Frances began making soap five years ago, prompted by the need to find a mild and moisturising soap that could potentially help her daughter who suffers from psoriasis.

Looking at the various types of soap on the market she quickly came to the conclusion that the best way to ensure that a bar was free from potentially harmful chemicals was to make it herself.

So, after months of research, testing (only on willing humans), obtaining a Cosmetic Safety Assessment from a registered chemist and complying with all the current legislation, she decided to share her soaps and started The Nines Soap Works.

The soaps are made with the best natural oils and butters to which are added the finest pure essential oils, botanicals, clays, colours and honey.

They are all suitable for vegetarians and, with the exception of the ones that contain honey, are also suitable for vegans.

Come along to the Heritage Centre on Sunday 15th May 10am – 4pm to meet Frances in person and buy some of her lovely soap products.

Some of Frances’ soap products are also available to purchase for a limited period in the Heritage Centre shop for the 2 weeks running up to her in person event day.

‘Meet the Maker’ will be outside under cover of the gazebo unless the weather is cold/rainy – in which case it will be situated in the foyer area inside the Heritage Centre.
