I made my made my first Soap from scratch with a kit 20 years ago and was hooked from that first batch. This process captures the Artist and the Scientist and combines both in the wonderful world of soapmaking. If you love scents and colors and being crafty have we got the class for you. Come and play and get hooked!
Sorry to announce this but I am canceling my in-person classes for the rest of the year. I normally invite people into my home for my soapmaking classes but with Covid19 I feel that it is too soon.
I do not have the proper facility to have in-person classes and be safe.
I am looking into doing an online class later in the Fall but need to work things out with supplies and especially with the lye/sodium hydroxide.
Thank you for your patience with all of this as I look forward to inspiring you all to learn to create soap.
I have entered to hopefully start in-person classes next year as future options with exact dates to be confirmed.
I will keep all informed later this summer about online zoom classes later in the Fall.
When was the last you were inspired to create something?
How about coming to my house and spend learning a new craft? I welcome you into my space and I will teach you about the process of making soap from scratch.
We will play with luscious oils and butters and of course colors and scents.
You will leave with your creation of a 2lb batch of soap and lots of handouts.
Each class runs from 10 AM to about 3 PM with a break for lunch in the middle. There will be a short demo and lots of information shared before your deep dive into making your own batch of soap from scratch.
We will review various soap ingredients including oils and butters for great soap, natural colorants, and additives, essential oils for scenting and most importantly lye safety. We will also go over making your own recipes.
Each student will receive a pack of handouts with recipes, ingredients, soapmaking instructions and resources for soap supplies.
Fee includes class, handouts, and supplies. Please call 336-403-1662 with any questions.
****I need to know at least a week in advance if you are considering taking the class so that materials and supplies can be prepared ******
Please inquire if the dates below do not meet your needs. If you can gather 2 more friends we may schedule a separate class.
Marilyn Schendel is an Advanced Certified Soapmaker with the Handcrafted Soap and Cosmetic Guild. She has been making soap and bath products since 1999 and has been teaching cold process soapmaking since 2010.
Again if dates below do not meet your needs, you can gather one or two more friends and we can maybe schedule another time.
