Have you ever thought about making soap yourself but weren't quite sure where to begin?
Have you read all the books and bought all of the supplies, but are unsure about how to get started?
The Soap Shoppe is thrilled to offer you the wonderful opportunity to experience soapmaking first hand and hands-on!
Join us at our farm in Laingsburg, Michigan for a soapmaking class where you will learn the basic principles of crafting cold-process vegetable and herbal soaps. Each participant will craft 5 pounds, approximately twenty-two 3. 5 ounce bars, of luxurious soap.
We will be crafting soap from a base of olive, palm and coconut oils. Your soap will be scented with essential or fragrance oils of your choice. We will also have a large selection of botanicals, clays and spices to complement your soap. All base, essential and fragrance oils and herbs/botanicals/spices are included and supplied by the class.
Participants will take home approximately five pounds of soap, a complete soap making kit, including a wooden mold with lid, safety goggles and instant read thermometer. You will also receive instructional materials which include your soap recipe, a list of suppliers for soapmaking ingredients and equipment as well as information about various resources and associations for soapmakers.
The cost is $180.00 for a private class or $140.00 for 2-4 participants. Class fees include all of your materials, equipment and supplies.
Class size is limited to 4 participants.
Classes are held on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the year.
