New! Organic Hot Process Soap Making Class - March 22


This is a brand new class, inspired by requests from our students! Learn to make hot process soaps in this fun 2.5-hour, soapmaking workshop in the Upper West Side. Hot process soap making requires very little cure time - a few days to a week at the most, depending on the recipe. The benefits of hot process soap making (a cooked method) over cold process is the lower cure time, control of which oils and butters are superfatted, the ability to add tricky ingredients that otherwise are problematic in cold process, and more.

What is hot process soap making? Hot process soaps are made using a method that involves making soap from scratch by combining a lye mixture with oils and butters. The soap mixture is heater, usually in a crockpot, to speed up the saponification process.

We will make two batches of hot process soap with different techniques. Instructors for the class are Marla Bosworth of Back Porch Soap Co. and Cae Byng of Soap Studio on Fifth. 

Students will receive an information-packed class handout with instructions, recipes and valuable supplier list and of course get to take home soap!
