Private Soapmaking Workshop

Have a group of 4-8 and would like to book a private soapmaking class?  Private groups can enjoy a hands-on class on soapmaking (class tailored to soapmaking level). Local soap maker and business owner Michele Sauve will go over the soap making process, demonstrate how soap is made and guide you as you make your own batch of soap to take home with you.  This 3 hour workshop will cover the process of making soap and touch on such topics as safe lye handling, basic terminology, soaping tips and options for customizing soap.   Gift Cards Available.
Bonus: Workshop includes a silicone lined wooden soap mold (makes 10 bars of soap).  Keep your mold and safety equipment for making soap at home!  If you have attended a workshop with us before, bring your mold and safety equipment and save 10% on workshop fee (use coupon code MYMOLD).  Don't think you will use the mold again? Return it to us after the workshop for a $10 refund.
