AGE RESTRICTION IS STRONGLY ENFORCED. ALL PARTICIPANTS MUST BE 18 AND OVER
Learn to craft cold process soap with your choice of scent and color. We discuss shampoo bars and how easy they are to create using castor oil apple cider vinegar or beer. Artisan soapers have started here to learn the basics and being that there are always new recipes, techniques, and advances this is this workshop attempts to be current.
Workshop includes the safe handling of sodium hydroxide (lye).
Safety First! A common question: is lye necessary for soap making? Yes! A base is needed with one hydroxide ion, so Sodium Hydroxide is used. But, don't NO WORRIES, there is no lye in the final product due to the chemical reaction that takes place between the carrier oils and the lye, which is converted into salt! Our goal is for you to understand what lye is, how to handle lye & to respect lye, not fear it! For this reason, we ask that you wear closed toed shoes, long pants, and a long sleeve top. We will provide safety glasses and gloves.
We ask that you bring a blanket to insulate your soap on the way home. Supplies may vary. Soap must cure for 4 to 6 weeks after it has been removed from your mold. Consider this when booking your workshop.
All supplies are included at no additional cost. If one chooses to make more than 1 batch, each add'l batch is $5.00 per batch (max of 2) and only after each participant has completed their recipe. For further clarification, kindly contact us
