Learn to make soap from scratch with us! This class will give you a simple introduction to the proper method of cold process soapmaking which uses lye. By the end of the class you will have learned the skills to make a batch of soap. And we’ll send you home with a few samples, recipes and a supply list. This class is ideal for beginners who have never made soap before.
