You've heard of "Sex and the City", right? Well now get ready for "Soap and the City"...NYC, that is! Held on the Upper West Side at a great studio inside Little Shop of Crafts (711 Amsterdam Ave. at 94th Street). This class is expected to fill up quickly. (Sign up by March 10, 2010 and save $20 off the regular price of $145.)
This class is perfect for new students and those wanting a refresher course. You'll learn to make organic cold process soap from scratch. This is always a lively class, filled with interesting students. Come hear their stories about why they want to learn how to make soap, perhaps start a business, and tell yours. It never ceases to amaze me the connections that are made in class. Don't miss it!
We'll make several batches together as a class. Each student will receive hands-on experience, an information-packed class handout with instructions, recipes and supplier list, and followup with me via email after class. (I keep in touch with many of my students for troubleshooting with the batches they make at home, supplier info, etc.)
You will learn safety guidelines and reach a level of comfort so that you can finally make soap by hand at home! We'll discuss how to formulate your own recipes, properly use and store lye, mixing lye and water, oils for soap making, fragrance oils vs. essential oils, superfatting, additives and exfoliants, coloring, molding and curing. Students will receive soap recipes and a list of my favorite places to buy soap making supplies and equipment.
Each student will take home 10 handmade bars of soap (worth $80 retail).
Date: Thursday, March 25
6 p.m.- 9:30 p.m.
Course: $105 + $20 materials fee (increases to $145 on 3/10/2010)
