Make Soap with Melanie

Register for our class Dealing with Stress & Anxiety below

Taught by Melanie Skelton

There is usually an $80 cost for this class, but I wanted to try doing it as a Zoom class for free this one time. So jump on board for this opportunity to make soap with me. 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.

Cold process soapmaking involves lye and is not intended for children under the age of 14. Students under the age of 18 should be assisted by an adult. Caustic ingredients are used, and appropriate measures must be taken to keep yourself and your surroundings protected. We will discuss all of the ways to keep yourself and your surroundings safe.

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.

We’ve chosen Zoom to make this experience most like a classroom and let you ask questions. So please feel free to come with your questions and get the most out of this opportunity.
