Make the greatest holiday gifts yourself this year! You will create beautiful soap even as a beginner with the guidance you receive in this class. You’ll even be able to use your new skills at home after class!
Details: Saturday, October 28th from 10am-Noon at my shop located in Duluth at 2301 Woodland Ave.
Many commercial soap companies use cheap petroleum-based ingredients and detergents (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 ensure 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:
- 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. Receive a soap recipe 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 is both fun and rewarding! You can register as a team of two if you want to make one batch of soap together.
Children under the age of 10 are not permitted. There is a point in the class where it becomes slightly dangerous (because the soap is made with lye!) and we 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.
Limited seating for each workshop/class. Class Size: 6 people. Private event/class times may be available for groups of 3 or more.
Sign up now to reserve your spots.
** Please note that it takes at least 4 weeks for the cold process soap to cure and ready to use from the date you make it! The soap made at this workshop will be ready to go right in time for Christmas!
