What you'll do

This class is a 4-hour, hands-on, immersive, and highly experiential soapmaking workshop. You will learn how to use plants and other organic, natural ingredients to make soap from scratch using the cold process method. Each student will design and create their own batch of soap to take home (which equates to up to 10 bars when cut). I am keeping this class small to work side-by-side with you. You'll also have the pleasure of meeting other likeminded people. Students will take home an information-packed handout with instructions, recipes, 1 wooden soap mold with silicone liner, protective goggles, soap cutter, ready-to-use soap bar, and of course the batch of soap made in class. The class will cover the following: Necessary materials, supplies, equipment Safety consideration when working with lye Taking proper measurements Using essential oils to scent your soap Coloring soap with natural herbs, spices, or clay Preparing your mold Cutting, curing, storing your soap

Where you'll be

We will conduct the class at our headquarters in BF Paranaque. The place is perfect for soap making as all materials will be provided and will have enough legroom to get crafty as I am keeping the class small to work side-by-side with you. You'll also have the pleasure of meeting other likeminded people.
