Soap Making



Traditional Soap Making

Christine Eberhardt

Create soap just like Grandma, but better! Join Chrissey and Patricia for an enjoyable Sunday afternoon as you learn how to make soap that not only smells good but is all-natural and feels great on your skin. This fun class will teach you how to create soap using the cold-process and natural/organic ingredients. You will learn all about the basic process, oils, and the difference between fragrances and essential oils. You will create soap from a recipe while learning how to handle lye safely. Finally, you'll take home your hand-made soap. So, say good-bye to store-bought soap and start using soap you made yourself!

Holiday Soap Making

Roberta Devers

Come and make soap for holiday gift giving! You will design and create a holiday soap scented with your favorite pines, peppermints and more. You can design your soap to look like cupcakes or other holiday treats! On the second day of class, you will cut the soap with a professional cutter, and design labels and will receive helpful hints for packaging. The timing of this class takes into account that soap must cure for 4 weeks prior to using.
