Lye Soap Making Workshop
October 22 @ 10:00 pm$99.00
Day long workshop explores the history of soap making ingredients used in commercially made versus homemade soaps. Learn how to make your own lye soap, chemical free. Cold process soap making involves creating custom soaps from scratch. The instructor will lead class and show you step by step how to make a batch of cold process soap. During the class you will learn safety tips and practices, how to properly handle sodium hydroxide (Lye), the basic chemical process of soap, how to customize your soap with color, scents and additives, options for molds and what to do with your soap after it saponifies (chemically changes into soap).Easy recipes and information booklet with instruction for home use. Come dressed in your old hippie clothes, include an apron and safety glasses. The soap you make in class that day will be ready to take home in about two weeks time.
This is not a glycerine soap making class! This is for lye soaps which need to cure for a couple of weeks before using.
