Basic Soapmaking

Make Soap with Melanie

This is a free class, but you do have to pre-register so that we can send you the link to the class in Zoom.

This class will be held online. You may participate in the DIY project at the end by having the ingredients ready so you can do your project at home during the class and ask any questions as we go. This project is not intended for children under the age of 14. Caustic ingredients are used, and appropriate measures must be taken to keep yourself and your surroundings protected. We will discuss this in the class, but make sure you pay attention to the details of the supply list if you are going to make the project with us.

I’ve been making soap for over twenty-five years. In this class, we will discuss safety and equipment. We will make a batch of soap together during which I will share the benefits of particular oils and ingredients. We will also talk about the process of soapmaking and how to cut and cure the soap after it is made. I will share recipes and resources, which will be sent out to you in a handout for your future reference.

Some of you will want to just watch and learn. Others may want to get the ingredients and make your soap along with me. Either way, come ready to ask questions and take notes.
