Cold-Process Soap Making with Jessica Newens

The Artful Gift Series: Cold-Process Soapmaking JESSICA NEWENS Friday, November 15 | 10am – 3:00pm | $75 + $25 materials (FOR TEENS & ADULTS) Learn the art of cold-process soapmaking while transforming your notion of what soap is – not just a basic cleansing tool, but rather an item to please all the senses. Participants will learn how to properly measure vegetable oils, safely mix lye, and add essential oils, textures and colors to create beautiful, emollient, nourishing bars of soap. After a few weeks of curing time, the finished bars will make perfect holiday gifts (if you’re willing to part with any, that is). Students should bring eye protection, long rubber gloves, and wear clothes that can get stained. This class is part of our Artful Gift Series: Create unique gifts with a personal touch that family and friends will cherish.
