About the Event
Led by Artist and Marketplace member, Albert Hutchings, you will learn how to make handmade cold processed soap. You will learn how to mix and measure the oils and safely use lye. Your soap will be made from ingredients you can readily buy from the grocery store; olive oil, coconut oil, castor oil and lard. You will also learn how to resize the recipe to fit your mold and how to add color and scents. Basic experience preferred but not required.
NOTE: This is a two part class:
May 27 from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm to make the soap
May 28 from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm to unwrap and cut the soap into bars
You will need to bring:
- 8 ounces of olive oil (Light oil, golden in color, not green) to produce the best soap.
- Rubber gloves.
All other oils and equipment will be provided.
