What you'll do

Learn everything you need to know to safely create a beautiful variety of handmade soaps with food grade oils & lye plus your choice of herbs, essential oils (or phthalate free fragrances), colorants, clay, butters, exfoliating nutrients, oats, honey...so many choices. You will learn a soap making method that is safe, efficient, & fun!

The soap making basics will be presented in a simple and user-friendly hands-on method. Watch, learn & then you create two (2 lb) batches of your own soap with assistance if needed. You will pour your raw soap into molds to take home and unmold & behold the following day on your own! I demonstrate the unmolding and soap cutting process on a batch of soap made the previous day. This fun filled & upbeat Saturday promises a productive and creative experience.

Leave with 4 pounds of soap, optional affordable soap supplies to make more at home, and soap making confidence for life! Class includes e-booklet with lots of recipes and helpful information.

All you need to bring is an apron, latex or vinyl gloves (the kind used for washing dishes) and your creative self.
Other things to note
Wear comfortable casual clothes and shoes.

I have a unique teaching style; simplifying complex information to a hands on practical approach anyone can learn. I have a great passion for teaching people how to make top quality herbal body care products. I love to offer my own trial and error experience and general guidelines and let my students do the formulating. My classes are a fun and personal experience with lots of choice and guidance when needed.

Where you'll be

My studio is located in the one of a kind Goat Farm Art Center which is a converted 19th century series of warehouses featuring a creative art complex & coffee shop in West Midtown, Atlanta. It is a popular film location with regular film tours boasting The Hunger Games and The Walking Dead. Before/after class, students are encouraged to take a stroll around this fascinating art center where you can see (and feed) live goats, donkey, & alpaca.
