Sun, October 01, 11:00am - 2:00pm
Join soapmaker Em Blood as she guides you through tried and tested process of making cold-processed soap without additives, parabens, fragrances, artificial colorants, or freaky additions. Cold-processed soap is considered “true” soap, compared to manufactured liquid soaps, and this has been the traditional way of making (with lye) since the beginning. The class will cover safety, supplies, how to make a full set of soap, the post-pour process, how to cut, bevel and store soap until ready for use. After this class you should feel confident to go home, purchase supplies, and make your own. This class is suited for beginners, all abilities. Because of lye safety, anyone under 16 should be with a parent/guardian.
