Beginners Soapmaking is a class for anyone who would like to learn the basic steps to making homemade soap. We teach traditional soap making methods using a blend of oils and lye. The objective of this class is for students to understand the soapmaking process and be comfortable creating their own soap recipes at home. Each student will make 1 lb of soap that they get to take home with them.
This class will focus on the basic soapmaking process: safety, blending oil and lye, adding single colors adding fragrance and molding.
We supply the raw ingredients: oil, lye, fragrances, colors, soap making equipment and safety equipment (gloves, goggles, mask). We do not supply a soap mold. Students may purchase a silicone soap mold (this can be re-used at home) or bring a mold that can be used. Household items can be repurposed as molds such as a milk cartons, pringles container, etc. If you would like a professional soap mold, we offer a 6 bar silicone soap mold that can be purchased below for $20.
Maximum Class Size: 6
Minimum Age: 15 (must be accompanied by adult if under 18)
Class Duration: 3 Hours
Dresscode: Students need to wear long pants, closed toe shoes and bring a long sleeve shirt.
This course covers traditional Cold Process soap making using a blend of oils and lye.
No, we do not cover any scope of melt and pour soap.
No, we will not be discussing the method of hot process in this class.
We allow children over the age of 15 when accompanied by a parent. Cold process soap making uses lye which is an extremely corrosive material and will burn the skin. We do not allow children under 15 in the soap lab.
Our class is very hands-on. You will be learning the soap making process and making your own soap.
