Event description

Do you love scented soaps? Have you always wanted to learn how soap is made? Learn how to craft your own bars of all natural soap using the cold process method! Cold Process is the method of making soap from raw ingredients like shea butter, oil, and lye. You will be instructed in the basic chemical process, saponification, safety tips and practices, proper handling of lye, and how to customize your soap batter with color and fragrance. ​​This class is taught by a professional soap maker who has many years of experience making cold process soap. This is a great class for individuals who are interested in learning how to make their own soap from scratch, whether for a hobby or as inspiration to start a business. Each participant will go home with a loaf of custom scented soaps decorated with natural botanicals.
