Learn to Make Soap | Monday, February 11th 5:-7:30pm
Want to learn to make cold-process soap from scratch?
Then this is the perfect class for you! Students will receive soap recipes and a list of places to buy soap making supplies and equipment. Although it may seem complicated when you are first starting out, making your own soap from scratch using all-natural ingredients can be both fun and rewarding ~ not to mention extremely addicting!
At the shop 15 N. 3rd Ave W in Duluth.
Why are people drawn to making their own soap from scratch? Many of us start making soap to have inexpensive, homemade, natural gifts for all the holidays and birthdays throughout the year. Or, some of us begin soaping because we have friends or family with problematic or sensitive skin that is easily irritated. Many commercial soap companies use cheap petroleum-based ingredients (like mineral oil) that can be harsh on delicate skin. By making soap in your own kitchen, you can tailor it to suit any skin type as well as insure that only the most beneficial ingredients go into your finished soap. The class will cover the following as we make a 2-pound batch of soap (about 8-10 bars) using the cold process method:
~Brief history and basic chemistry of soap making
~Necessary materials, supplies and equipment
~Safety considerations when working with lye
~Accurate measurements and proper mixing temperatures
~Coloring soap naturally with herbs, spices and clays
~Using pure essential oils to scent your soap naturally
~Preparing your molds and molding options
~Insulating, cutting, curing and storing your finished soap
You will learn how to make all-natural cold process soap through creating a batch of your own.
Email: firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a date for you and a couple of friends, learning to make soap together if you don’t see a date on the calendar that works for you.
Along with the confirmation email I will also send you a small supply list of things you will need to bring such as gloves and some utensils. These are common kitchen utensils so there should be no need to purchase anything for the class. If there is something you don’t have I probably have an extra one, so let me know.
You can register as a team of two if you want to make one batch of soap together.
I don’t allow children under the age of 10 to attend because there is a point in the class where it becomes slightly dangerous and I don’t want any distractions.
Cancellations: If you cannot make it to your class please be kind enough to let us know 48 hours in advance so we may give your spot to another eager soaper! No refunds for no-shows and late cancellations.
