Why keep buying soaps when you can safely and easily make your own natural soap at home?  In this hands-on class Pam will guide students through the full process of making soap.  Each student will make their own “loaf”, taking home 11 bars of soap and a handout with soap recipes, where to find ingredients and products, and packaging ideas.

 In class you’ll learn:

  • Ingredients needed
  • Safety with ingredients
  • Saponification process
  • Colorants and fragrances and when to add them
  • Various soap molds for different shapes
  • Unmolding, cutting, and trimming choices
