Soap Making With Birgit

SoapBirgitClass

Join us for a soap-making class with Birgit on Friday, April 4, 5:30-7:30pm.

Let’s craft fresh beautiful spring soap in this beginners workshop. In this soap making class you’ll get to learn how to incorporate gorgeous spring herbs into natural soap and how to choose essential oils that are right for you. Lots of herbs and essential oils will be on hand, but feel free to bring your favorites.

Take home 4 bars (1 pound) of luscious palm kernel oil free – because we love orangutans – soap you made yourself and a handout with recipes and great information.

When you take our Natural Soapmaking – Beginner class, you will learn to safely make your own batch of natural, cold-processed soap from scratch. Cold process soap making is a very popular method because you can control just exactly what beautiful oils and butters will go into your soap and what the end result will be. In this fun & engaging workshop we will cover safety procedures, the chemistry of soap making and the process to make a cold process soap.

Be sure to wear long sleeves and bring a pair of saftey glasses (don’t have those? Not a problem! Extras are always on hand!!). $45
