Soap 101 – Beginning Cold Process Soapmaking

The beginner Class can take ~ 2.5 hrs. We'll spend the first part covering what soap is, the soap process, choosing fats and lye safety. You will make 1 lb of soap you get to take with you to cure at home. The cost is $85/each and includes all instruction, materials, handouts, and ingredients. We also have aprons, gloves, and safety googles that you will borrow... so basically you just show up!

Soap Making 101 is a beginning-level soapmaking class designed to teach students to make soap by hand at home. The main focus of this class is the “cold process” soapmaking method. Although it may seem complicated when you are first starting out, making your own soap from scratch (the way some of our grandparents did) using all-natural ingredients can be both fun and rewarding ~ not to mention extremely addicting! If you’ve ever measured, mixed, and baked anything then you can make soap. We will cover what soap is, soap process, choosing fats and lye safety. Each student makes 1 lb of soap they get to take with them.

NOTE: This is an age 15+ class since making soap from scratch involves working with lye (aka sodium hydroxide). Also, cold process soap needs about a month to cure before using. To take part please wear or bring a long-sleeved shirt, closed-toed shoes. You’ll also need rubber gloves and safety goggles. Private sessions will have gloves and goggles provided for you.

We provide:
- instruction
- materials and ingredients (including your choice of one pure essential oil to scent your soap (Lavender, Lemongrass, Peppermint, or Scotch Pine)
- apron, gloves, and safety goggles

You provide:
- wear clothes you won't mind getting dirty (long sleeves, pants, and close toed shoes for safety)
- a willingness to learn and a smile!

This is a physical class only offered at our workshop in Athens, GA. This offering is meant for those that are near enough to travel to the workshop in Athens, GA. Cold process soap takes 4+ weeks to cure. Your soap will be ready to use 4 weeks after making it in this class.
