What you'll do

The activities can be performed in English, 한국어(Korean), and 日本語(Japanese).
The moment you come in, relax with a cup of tea, coffee or water, while I show you my previous works and the things that are possible. Then, we chat about what you want to make: What shapes, colours, what scents and see if you want to buy an essential oil to include in the soap you will be making.
Once you have chosen what and how you want to make your soaps, then, we bring out the necessary tools for you and you start making them. If you want me to help you, I guide you through. If not, you are on your own! Then after we put the liquid soaps in their molds, we spray them with alcohol. Then we wait until they are hard.
While we are waiting, we prep the note to keep with them. We can write on it like a card, or put date and signature, and put which scents or essential oils are in the soap on the note.
Finally, you can take it with you home or wherever the adventure takes you!
Other things to note
Puppy Princess Poli (long haired Chihuahua) is always at home, so please be sure you won't be allergic to dogs.

I've been an artist all my life, and found this activity to be really soothing. I got into a car accident and retained a traumatic brain injury on my left brain so I lost the ability to use my right hand to do the things I love to do like drawing, painting, make clothes or writing stories with pen and paper. It will come back!
Then I thought my art life was over, but this sparked so much joy! It was also something useful, that we can give away as gifts, or use with a story to tell whoever is interested!
We will make desserts or lovely flowers or beautiful clusters in the colours we love, scents and essential oils

Emily is so wonderful -- what a ray of sunshine! My partner and I loved her energy and listening to how she got into soap-making. Our soaps turned out beautiful and now we're inspired to make some of our own at home! Thank you again, Emily -- best of luck to you!

Emily was simply wonderful. During our session she was hospitable and patient. In a relaxed and unhurried atmosphere, we all learned something new about the soap making process. Emily is very open and throughout our discussion it became clear how creative, artistic, strong and inspiring she truly is. I loved every minute of our time together. Also, her dog is well trained and absolutely adorable!
