Six Week Soapmaking Course

This six week course will introduce you to cold process soapmaking and take your soapmaking to the next level. Learn and practice the basics, how to formulate your own recipes, and an assortment of techniques to impress your friends and family.  Each class will cover a different topic, include a demonstration and give you the opportunity to make a batch of soap consisting of 10 bars.  Local soap maker and business owner Michele Sauve will provide guidance and support during the hands on portion of the course.  
Bonus: Course includes one silicone lined wooden soap mold (makes 10 bars of soap) which you will reuse each week.  Additional molds/supplies available for purchase if you would like to make more than one batch per class.  Keep your mold and safety equipment for making soap at home! Bring them to future classes for a 10% discount on workshop fees.  Don't think you will use the mold again? Return it to us for a $10 refund.
