Learn how to make 100% natural bar soap from scratch in our private advanced cold process soapmaking course.  This course is completely hands on, you make the soap under direction of the instructor.  This class will last anywhere from four to six hours long.  

 

The course will cover the following topics:

  • How to formulate your own recipe using the cold process method (you actually do this with Randi in the class, with the ability to use most of Creations from Eden's products).  
  • ​How to use a lye calculator and what those numbers mean.  
  • How incorporating different ingredients into your soap affects the outcome (you get to choose the ingredients to your skin type and preferences).  
  • Using lye safely and other safety information.
  • You will make a premeasured batch of unscented soap at first.  This will show you what the terminology means and what to watch for in the soap making process.  Then you will make a batch of soap completely formulated by yourself (with Randi's help) following all the steps and incorporating scent, colourant and additional ingredients and additives.  This last batch of soap will go home with you in the soap mold.
  • How to unmold and cut your soap.  (You will do this on a premade batch of soap that Randi has made for testing purposes).   

 

Upon completion of the course you will go home with eight 4 ounce bars of your wonderful  handmade cold process soap, a 2 lb wooden soap mold and a customized workbook to recreate your own soap time and time again. 

 

All materials and supplies are provided with the exception of safety goggles (available at any hardware store) and rubber gloves (need to be up to the elbows, cleaning or dish gloves will suffice).
