Soapy Affair with Viriya

Hello. This is Hemantha from Viriya Handmade Store.

Viriya is born out of my passion towards everything handmade, my love for making handmade products and my urge to learn and create something with my hands and heart. Through Viriya i would like to share my interests with like minded people who are open to explore and promote new ideas of creating and learning simultaneously.

My dream for Viriya is to build a self sustainable creative learning and making space through collaboration with like minded people ( of all age groups) who are passionate about working with hands and heart.
I am hoping to work towards that dream through my interactions with my fellow community members whenever possible.

I have been making handmade soaps for the last two years. With a lot of support and encouragement from friends and family, I started selling them since the beginning of this year. I will be sharing some of my experience in soap making at Courtyard Koota.
