Join master soapmaker Marla Bosworth and learn the fascinating, alchemical process of cold process soapmaking. During this lively, 3-hour, hands-on workshop we will make two batches of luxurious, moisturizing bar soap from scratch. Attendees will take home 12 bars (a retail value of more than $72)!
This workshop is intended for students who wish to learn how to make cold process soap for personal use or to sell. No experience is required. Students will learn how to formulate soap recipes at home using all natural ingredients such as shea butter, olive oil, herbs and essential oils.
Together, students will make two batches as a class. Each student will receive hands-on experience, an information-packed class handout with instructions, recipes and valuable supplier list.
You will learn safety guidelines and reach a level of comfort to make soap at home. We'll discuss how to formulate your own recipes, properly use and store sodium hydroxide (lye).
