Class Description

Have you ever wanted to learn how to craft your own soap but didn't know where to start? Now is your chance! This goat milk soap class is a great entrance into the world of soapmaking.

Goat Milk Soap is known for being a gentle cleanser, rich in nutrients with a natural exfoliant. If you are looking for a soap that is not harsh and keeps your skin healthy come make your own goat milk soap with us. You will have more than 40 scent options (including 100% all-natural essential oils) along with color and texture to tailor your suds to you personally.

In this hands-on workshop, you will be given a brief history of soap, safety tips and practices, how to properly handle sodium hydroxide, how to use a lye calculator, the basic chemical process of soap, how to customize your soap, and what to do with your soap after it saponifies (chemically changes into soap).

Each student will create 16 bars of handmade goat milk soap. You will have enough to keep and share. The class fee includes the instructor cutting your soap into bars. Your soap will be ready to pick up from Mid approximately two weeks after class. If you would like the soap mold and instructions on how to cut your soap into bars you can pay an additional $10 fee during the class.

NOTE: Participants must wear safety goggles, long pants, a long sleeve shirt, and close-toed shoes to this class. Because we work with basic chemistry (combining fats/oils with lye), this class is for adults (16+ years) and is not recommended for younger children.


We'd love to answer them!
