Learn how soap becomes “soap” through the process of saponification and how to use online calculators to custom create any soap that suits your personal preference! Participants will have hands on practice creating and following a recipe, learn important safety tips and will leave class with at least one pound of “raw” soap to take home to cure the 6-8 weeks necessary. This is a fast-paced course designed to give the basics of soapmaking. Please bring an old bath sized towel to insulate soap for the ride home. Lisa Hoyt has been teaching soap making for over 20 years. $52 workshop for ages 18 and up, includes all supplies. Meets at Green Ridge Recreation Center from 1pm to 4pm on Saturday, February 29.
