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. As an experienced, award-winning soap artisan, I'll show you some tips that elevate beginner soap design into something special.
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. :)
Because we work with basic chemistry (combining fats/oils with lye), this class is for adults (16+ years) - not recommended for younger children.
You're welcome to do this class with an older teen, but please note that the fee is per participant.
Want to make soap with younger children? Check my current Glycerin Soap Class offerings or get a few friends together and book one of my glycerin soap-making private parties. (Great for Birthdays and Girls' Night Out events, too!)
