Artistic Melt & Pour/Glycerin Soap Class
Date: Thursday, June 8, 2017
Time: 6 PM to 8 PM
Location: North Boulder (Private residence - you'll receive details upon registration)
Cost: $40.00 (+ $10 materials fee)
Here's a recipe for a great time: A creative group combined with melt-and-pour glycerin soap! MP is an excellent choice for a beginner soap making project - with no lye to handle and no cure time involved, you'll leave class with finished soap ready for use!
As it happens, I recently won a third place ribbon for the melt and pour goat's milk soap (pictured) at the 2016 Denver County Fair. So, let's just say that I'll have a few tips to share.
Most MP/glycerin soap uses synthetic colors and fragrances - in this class, we'll use more natural ingredients and both clear and goat milk bases, plus creative flourishes to create unique works of soap art! You'll also leave with instructions and a supply list for future soapy projects, in the event you become enamored of this fun and fanciful creative outlet (I apologize in advance). ;)

Making soap outside, with the sounds of chickens and goats in the background - does it get any BETTER?!? Clean and green, for sure!
Join us at Lafayette's organic Three Leaf Farm, the perfect setting to learn the value of bypassing commercial “soaps” - actually detergents that can wreak havoc on both the environment and your system beyond dry skin. Thoughtfully crafting your own soap with a few simple, skin supportive ingredients is both a creative and environmentally savvy alternative.
In this hands-on workshop,you'll learn the basics of making classic cold-process soap. We'll review safety tips, create a beginners' supply list, and get creative with customization techniques. You'll leave inspired with simple recipes, a resource list, handcrafted soap, and (quite possible) a happy obsession with a new creative pursuit. :)
