Let’s make soap; a cold process introduction
November 16 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm$25
This class will introduce the basics of cold process soap making. Instructor Gwen Weerts will lead discussion about the chemistry of saponification, and go over ingredients, supplies, colorants, and scents. She’ll touch on beginner design techniques, but that won’t be the focus. Most importantly, you’ll make a batch of soap! Everyone will go home with their own bar. Best for adults and children over 13.
The class fee includes materials.
*Gwen raises a heritage breed of pork, and is blessed with an excess of organically raised lard. Consequently, you will be working with animal fat in this class, in addition to vegetable-based oils.
