Beginner Cold Process Soap Making @ Parris House Wool Works
Jan 19 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

 

Join Beth’s other half, Bill Miller, for a fun morning of cold process soap making. We will be making an all natural cold process soap recipe using vegetable oils for the base and essential oils for the scents. These soaps are vegan friendly! Each student will leave with a 2 lb. soap wood soap mold with silicone liner filled with his/her own fresh cold process soap (it will need to cure 4-6 weeks at home), accessories needed for soap making, and a booklet for use at home. This class never fails to be fun and surprising (as in…it really IS easy to make your own soap!).
