Class Date: June 10th
Time: 4-7 p.m.
Soap Making 101 is a beginning-level soapmaking class designed to teach students to make soap by hand at home. The main focus of this class is the “cold process” soapmaking method. Although it may seem complicated when you are first starting out, making your own soap from scratch (the way some of our grandparents did) using all-natural ingredients can be both fun and rewarding ~ not to mention extremely addicting! We will cover what soap is, soap process, choosing fats and lye safety. Each student makes and takes 1 lb of soap. If you’ve ever measured, mixed, and baked anything then you can make soap!
Please choose your desired Essential Oil Blend below.
NOTE: This is an age 16+ class since making soap from scratch involves working with lye (aka sodium hydroxide). Also, cold process soap needs about a month to cure before using. To take part please wear or bring a long-sleeved shirt, closed-toed shoes. We will provide apron, gloves, and goggles but you might prefer to bring your own.
