The class also includes an exposť on clean water-soluble colorants versus water-dispersible colorants that may leave a gritty coating inside the bathtub. Students take home bath treats made in class.

Beginning Cold Process Soapmaking

August 7 at the Soapmaking Studio

Cold Process Soap Batter in the Soap Pot

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.
