Soapmaking Master Class – 2 Day Workshop

December 21, 2019 @ 9:00 am - December 22, 2019 @ 2:00 pm

Make soap! Like, a lot of soap.

This workshop is a two day event and is geared toward the “serious” soapers that are interested in the science behind soapmaking to fine tune their recipes and/or hobbyists that are interested in turning their hobby into a business. Experience in the soapmaking world is not necessary, but this class is better suited for those who have researched soap extensively but have not done much with that knowledge base. Bring your questions and we will find the answers together while making five batches of soap per attendee over the course of two days.

Classes are from 9am to 2pm Saturday and Sunday, so plan accordingly. Snacks and beverages provided, bring your own lunch. I don’t know how to feed people; I only know how to get them clean. 😂

Day One:
—>history of soapmaking, basic chemistry
—>safety breakdown, tools needed
—>basic rules of soapmaking and when to break them
—>SAP chart, oil and butter characteristics
