You’ve committed to a clean diet and reducing your carbon footprint, but what about the environmental and health impact of what goes on your body? Commercial “soaps” are actually detergents that can wreak havoc on your system beyond dry skin. Crafting your own soap with a few simple, skin supportive ingredients is both a creative and environmentally smart alternative. Plus, handcrafted soap makes a luxurious, practical, and thoughtful gift.

Join me, an award-winning, local soap artist in this hands-on workshop as I walk you through the basics of making cold-process, hand-poured soap. We’ll review safety considerations, the beginning soap maker’s supply list, and creative customization tips. We’ll make a simple lemongrass cedar batch with artistic touches - plus you’ll go home with hand-made soap! 

NOTE: 
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 (below, this page) 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!)

When was the last time you just kicked back and had some whimsical, crafty fun?

Grab a friend (or join us and meet other creatives) for a melt-and-pour (MP) glycerin soap class! 

MP is an excellent choice for a beginner soap making project - we'll play with a variety of molds, cosmetic micas and essential oils in both clear and white bases, plus finish off with creative flourishes for unique works of soap art. With no lye to handle and no cure time required, you'll leave class with finished, jewel-like, sparkling, mini soaps ready for use. Learn artistic techniques to make great travel, guest soaps, or just pleasing "eye candy" for your own soap dish!

Here's a wonderful recipe to kick-off a great Mother's Day Weekend: You and your child (or you and your parent) learn to create gorgeous designs with melt-and-pour (MP) glycerin soap! MP is an excellent choice for a beginner soap making project - with no lye to handle and no cure time involved, each participant will leave class with finished, gem-like, sparkly soap ready for use. Choose between making full-sized or creating adorable "minis" - perfect for guests, favors, or friends!

In this two-hour class, we'll use cosmetic micas with your choice of clear or white bases, plus creative flourishes (like soap embeds and botanicals), to create unique works of soap art. You'll leave with finished, packaged, gorgeous little soaps and wonderful memories of making them together!
