Intro to Soapmaking Workshop With Melissa Housser, RA® EOT®
Intro to Soapmaking Workshop, Thursday, May 31st, 6:30 - 8:30 Pre-registration required. Space is limited.
Come enter a world of bubbles and learn how to make cold-process soap! Cold-process is one method of soap making where vegetable oils or fats are mixed with sodium hydroxide (lye) to create a soap making a chemical reaction that you can learn all about in this two-hour workshop. In this introductory level workshop, students will learn the basics of soap making through a demonstration by Registered Aromatherapist and longtime soap maker, Melissa Housser.
Students will receive a booklet of information including safety, supplies, resources, and recipes, as well as four "hotel-size" bars of soap to take home and cure. For this first level of soap making, we will be making a colourless soap using all natural ingredients and pure essential oils.
