Soap Making (Ages 18+)

Monday, May 21, 2018

The science of soap! Learn how soap becomes "soap" through the process of saponification and how to use online calculators to custom create any soap that suits your personal preference! Participants will have hands-on practice creating and following a recipe, learn important safety tips and will leave class with at least one pound of "raw" soap to take home to cure. This is a fast-paced course designed to give the basics of soapmaking. All supplies are provided. Bring a dinner or snack if desired. Instructor Lisa Hoyt has many years of experience instructing arts and crafts classes. She has taught for Michaels Craft Stores, a Parks and Recreation agency in New Hampshire, after school in Salem City Schools, and many more. She looks forward to sharing her knowledge and interest with others and you or your child in her programs!
