Take a private soap making class with me. I can tailor a class specifically for you and give you my full attention.
Interested in learning how to make your own handcrafted soap, but a little shy about taking a class with others? Or maybe you just want someone to teach you one-on-one.
Is there is a certain technique you’d like to learn? How to layer soap? Do an in-the-pot swirl? Is there a trick to using embeds?
Do you want to learn how to make a goat milk or a beer soap? (Yes, you can make a soap with alcohol!)
Maybe your curious about incorporating color into your soaps. We can use natural botanicals for color or micas.
In a private soap making class, you’ll be the only student. Once we get the basics done, there’ll be time to talk about move advanced topics.
This class will teach you
1-How to work safely with lye. We will use gloves and goggles.
2-The properties of soap making oils and why we use them. Each oil we put into the soap adds something special to it.
3-How to use an online lye calculator.
4-An understanding of what superfatting is, and what actually happens during the soap making reaction (saponification)
5-How to make a great bar of soap. You’ll feel comfortable formulating your own soap recipe.
You’ll leave class with a handout that includes
1-Safety instructions (general and lye related)
2-Necessary equipment list.
3-Detailed step-by-step soap making instructions.
4-My supplier list of where to purchase ingredients.
5-10 soap recipes.
6-3 pounds of soap.
8-The confidence to make soap at home on your own.
