Soapmaking 102

The color palette in nature provides perfect hues for your natural soaps! This class focuses on using herbs and clays to design naturally colorful soap. Learn how to add herbs and clays as well as a few swirl and layering design techniques to add interest and botanical benefits to your handmade soap creations! *Soap 101 is not a prerequisite but it is helpful to already know the basics of soap making as we will not delve into the specifics in 102.* All levels welcome! You will walk away with about 2-3 lbs of soap.

Fees cover instruction, safety equipment (apron, gloves and glasses) and all soaping-making ingredients. It DOES NOT include a mold. You may buy multiple one pound silicone square soap mold from us for $10 each or bring your own or up-cycle an appropriate vessels like milk cartons or similar. Read about it here: Recycle your Recyclables – Soap Molds. Keep in mind that you will need enough molds for 2-3 lbs of soap or 2-3 batches.
