Beginning Cold Process Soapmaking
September 4 at the Soapmaking Studio
Soapmaking 101 is a beginning-level soapmaking class designed to teach students to make soap by hand at home. The main focus of this class is the "cold process" soapmaking method; although the class does briefly describe "melt & pour" soap crafting. After learning soapmaking safety, students learn to formulate soap recipes and calculate lye quantities without using a "lye calculator." The objective of Soapmaking 101 is to have students understand saponification values and be comfortable creating their own soap recipes at home. Students make cold process soap during the class session and take home a bar.
This class is also available online: Description of Online Soapmaking 101.
Intermediate Transparent Bar Soapmaking
September 11 at the Soapmaking Studio
Learn to make clear transparent bars of handmade soap from whole oils. Soapmaking 214 is not a "Melt & Pour" soapmaking class. Transparent soap has a superior rinsability when compared to opaque cold process soap and is more suitable for use as facial soap. Learn to make prized transparent bar soap, similar to Neutrogena-type facial soaps. Create beautiful clear soaps from whole natural oils using cold and hot process techniques. Register for Soapmaking 214.
