Event description

Description

Our skin is the largest organ in the body. Often times, we get so caught up with what we put in our bodies that we forget what we put on our bodies is just as important. Soapmaking is one way we can ensure that what we put on our bodies daily is nothing but the best for us. Through this workshop we will discover how much fun it is to create our very own custom soaps.

In this workshop, we will be learning the basics about soapmaking. At the end of the workshop, you will have learned the following:

  • Soapmaking safety when working with lye
  • Mixing and incorporating ingredients
  • Basic essential oils and botanicals used in soapmaking
  • Terms and tools of soapmaking
  • How to properly line your soap mold for easy release
  • Cutting your soap bars
  • Curing times and soap use

Participants may want to bring a hand held stick mixer (we have four for use to share amongst the group if you do not mind taking turns). You will be provided with safety glasses, gloves, and a basic disposable chemical mask. Bring an old towel with you to class. If you wish to have your own safety glasses and chemical mask, they can be purchased at a hardware or home store such as Lowe's or Home Depot.

Please wear comfortable clothing with close-toes shoes. Wear a long sleeve shirt and pants to protect your skin as we will be working with lye. You will leave with a box loaf of soap that yields approximately 8+ regular bars of soap. It will take at least 4 -6 weeks for the soap to cure before use.

You may bring a beverage of your choice. We will provide water and small bites.

The workshop will be held in the School House kitchen. Ticket sales will end 48 hours before the workshop and space is limited.
