Soap Swirl and Design

Roberta Devers

Do you love the different designs you see in handmade soap? Then come to this advanced workshop and learn various swirling techniques that will take your plain bar of soap to the next level. We will learn the hanger swirl, drop swirl and the "in the pot" swirl. We may even do a layering technique if time permits! You will go home with a minimum of 10 bars of soap and after the 4-week curing process they will be ready for use or gifting. NOTE: The February 2nd class will be with a "Vegan" Twist using a cruelty free, no animal product recipe and natural colorants.
