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!

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.
