Event Details

Introduction to Cold Process Soapmaking will teach participants how to make handmade soap with simple ingredients and little equipment. During this three-hour class we will make a batch of soap and cover:

  • A brief history of soapmaking
  • Safety gear and precautions
  • Basic cold process chemistry
  • Ingredient selection and storage
  • How to create your own recipes
  • How to cut, cure and store soaps

Each participant will leave with a bar of soap and a resource guide to help continue the adventure at home!

We're located in Ponyride, a coworking space near the old train station and on the border of two neighborhoods: Corktown and Southwest Detroit. Ponyride is on the corner of Vermont St. and Porter St., just south of Bagley St. and west of Rosa Parks Blvd. This venue is accessible by bus along routes 19 (Fort), 29 (Linwood) and 49 (Vernor).
