Getting bored with your cold process soap? Juice it up! Dump the boring distilled water and get turned onto a variety of interesting liquids that can be used to make soap: coffee, tea, juices, beer & wine! Each one can bring something fun and exciting to your handmade soap!
Of course, you always need some kind of liquid to dissolve the sodium hydroxide before making cold process soap, but it doesn’t have to be water. Alternative liquids can bring new (natural) colors, scents and unique qualities to your soap that water just can’t.
In this special "next-level" soapmaking from scratch class, you will:
Each student will take home three full-sized (cured) bars of soap, just like the ones made in class, along with a thorough handout that includes the recipes made in the class and resources for finding ingredients.
Prerequisite Details: This intermediate-level soapmaking class is designed for students who have either taken our Cold Process Soap Making 101 class, the 2-Day Soap Making Boot Camp, or who have experience making soap from scratch on their own. If you have never made soap from scratch before (cold process or hot process), you must first take our Cold Process Soap Making 101 class that demonstrates soapmaking using a 4-pound batch and teaches the basics (including lye safety) needed for all beginning soap makers. This is an age 18+ class since making soap from scratch involves working with lye (aka sodium hydroxide).
