Beginners Class
Palm Oil Free
Cold Process Organic Soap Making Class
3 hours $60

Cold process soap making is the foundation for all other natural soap making techniques.

Learning cold process before moving on to a more complicated class is essential.

You will need to complete this class
before you register for the following classes:

  • Organic Hot Process Soap Making Class
  • Natural Liquid Soap Making Class
  • Cream Soap Making Class
  • Wine, Beer and Juice Soap Making Class
  • Natural Art Soap Making Class
  • Milk Soap Making Class

 

During this 3 hour class, you will make a recycled soap mold
to hold your fresh 2 pound batch of soap.

You will also learn to make an organic soap recipe that you
can call your very own.

Once you decide how you would like your soap
to benefit your skin (moisturizing, exfoliating, acne prevention, etc),
we will work together to customize a blend that you will be making during class.

You will learn about blending essential oils and will be given several of my
favorite essential oil recipe blends that I have created over the past 15 years.
You will be able to choose any of these blends to add to your soap batch.
Please note, I do not use artificial fragrance oils.
The only fragrances I work with come from natural sources.

There are many choices for natural colours.  Some of these colours are typical
and others are very unusual and creative.

We will discuss the huge amount of options when it comes to natural colours
and we will discuss some sources of colour that you need to avoid, both natural and synthetic.

We will talk about natural ingredients that help to make your soap harder and last longer.

We will be unmolding and cutting a freshly cured batch of soap
so you will know what to expect when your soap is ready to cut.

We will take a look at different ways to wrap and package your soap,
how to cure it properly and when you will be able to use it.

This class is not a demo class, it is very hands on.
I will make sure you are comfortable with each step of the soap making process
so you are confident and successful when it comes to making your soap on your own.

You will leave with a full Cold Process Soap Making manual (over 50 pages) containing
detailed pictures of each step, as well as the step by step recipe creation worksheets with
everything laid out so you can’t go wrong,
and any notes you have jotted down as you went along (I will help you with this).

You will also take home your customized recipe with any information you need to
duplicate it and all the information you need to create even more personalized
recipes for yourself and others.

Some of the members have made these Cold Process soap blends in past classes:

- Bamboo Charcoal soap with Rosemary and Mint essential oil
– Complexion soap with Black Salt and Lime essential oil
– Natural Indigo Blue soap with French Lavender essential oil
– Dead Sea Mud with Australian Pink Clay and Patchouli essential oil

Your soap will be packaged in a transportation box and you will be able to take it home after the class.

You can unmold and cut the soap the next day.

Once you have taken a Soap Making School Class, you become a Soap Making School Member.

You will be given your own password and login so you can access the
Soap Making School Members Only Forum.
This is a place where all the members from both the local classes and online classes can
come together to share ideas.

This is a very exclusive group of people from all over the world.
The forum is not open to the public.

I look forward to answering all of your questions both during and after the class.

extractions and CO2s and absolutes.

cold process soap making.

Hot Process Soap Making also allows many other options for
natural colours than cold process soap.

We will talk about natural ingredients that help to make your
soap harder and last longer.

We will be unmolding and cutting a freshly cured batch of
Hot Process Soap so you will know what to expect
when your soap is ready to cut.

Palm Oil Free
Organic Cream Soap (for cleansers and shaving cream),

Chunk Soap and Antibacterial Laundry Soap
3 hours $60

(must complete Palm Oil Free Cold Process Organic Soap Making Class before enrolling in this class)

Not many people think of their soap scraps or left over soap as a raw material
that can be used to make other products, but it can be a very valuable ingredient.

What can we do with these soap scraps or batches that just didn’t turn out?

This class is a great way to either use your soap scraps or
batches of soap that are just not your favorite.

During this class we will create a batch of cream soap using soap scraps and liquid soap.
This cream soap is a terrific base for shaving cream and face cleansers.
It is also the base I used in my extremely popular Bamboo Charcoal Face Scrub.

In this class you will also create a 2 pound batch of either cold process or hot process chunk soap.
This is where you introduce these scraps to a new batch of soap.
I will show you how to adjust your soap recipe to accommodate these scraps.

Powdered Laundry Soap will also be created in this class.
This will be made without the use of Borax or Soda Ash
which are both non-biodegradable as well as a skin irritant.

In this class you will make:

- Natural Cream Soap
– A 2 lb Batch of Cold or Hot Process Chunk Soap
– Powdered Environmentally Friendly Laundry Soap

Whether it’s for yourself, or a special person including the babies in your life, you will never need to buy
another chemical filled “natural”cream or lotion again.

You will know every ingredient that is going into your creation and you will know why it is in there.

We will cover a few of the tricks that commercial lotion and cream making manufacturers use to get away with their label claims.

A good lotion can change your skin for the better.  Along with the lotion and cream you will create, you will leave with all
the information you need to successfully make any lotion you want on your own.  Class includes literature.

You will leave with a lotion and a cream or an incredible hair conditioner that you will make and customize for yourself or someone special.
All ingredients are natural!

You will learn the difference between an antioxidant and a natural preservative
as well as learn when to use one or the other in your formula.

    Studio Time For Soap Making

    Many soapers have been asking about using the studio to make their soap instead of making it at home.

    ****You must have attended  one of the classes in order to use the studio. ****

    I will be there to guide you if you need any help, but this is not a class.

    This is free to those who would like to purchase a kit.
    $25 – 2 pound
    $40 – 4 pound  (yes you can split it into 2 different batches.)

    This has been a very popular option because:

    #1 You don’t need to invest in a large quantity of expensive oils to make soap making cost effective.
    #2 You can make several different types of soap and explore which oils you prefer.
    #3 You don’t have to worry about using oils that have a short shelf life before they expire.  I go through a lot of these oils, so they are always fresh.
    #4 You need to dedicate all your tools used in the soap making process and can’t use them for food.
    #5 I will look after the mess!  You don’t need to worry about contaminating your kitchen with soap ingredients.

    Here are a few guidelines:

    The schedule for Studio Times are in the class schedules below.  If there is a different time you would like to come in, I will need 2 days notice so I can plan my day to be in the studio.

    It won’t be a problem unless I have a meeting, class, show or market to attend.  I try to reserve Monday as a book keeping/ computer day, so if you can avoid Mondays that would be great.

    No more than 3 participants at a time, since I will be working on my own products and we all need the elbow room.

    The students can use the studio and the tools and equipment to make their soap, I will be present, but will be working on my own products.

    I will be available for questions, but this is not a class. I am providing you with the space to work on your own.

    The use of the studio is free with the purchase of the kits.

    The use of the studio is $10 per hour if you choose to bring your own ingredients.

    The average time it will take to make a batch of soap is anywhere from 1 hour to 2 hours.

    You must also bring your own soap molds and a container to transport your soap back home,
    unless you would like to come back the following day to cut it and take it home.

    If this idea is appealing to you, then please feel free to set up a time to come in by sending me an email.

    The kits include the base oils (organic Olive and Organic Coconut) ,

    essential oils of your choice, special oils of your choice and natural colours of your choice.

    This is a great time to get all of your gift giving soap completed.  I know it feels too early to be thinking about winter,
    but I have already made most  of my soap for the winter season shows.  This gives it lots of time to cure and allows
    you time to think about how you want to package it.

     

    —————————————————-



    Introducing Soap Club

    Joining the Soap Club is free.

    It is similar to a loyalty coffee card.

    When you come in during studio time you receive a stamp on your
    Soap Club loyalty card for every batch of soap you make.

    Once you purchase and make five batches of soap, you will get your sixth one free.

    The price is $25 for a 2 pound batch or $40 for a double batch (2 @ 2lb batch).

    You would have a different card for both the single batch and the double batch options.
    You can also use your single batch loyalty card to make liquid soap.

    Once you reach five single batches ($25 each), you get to make your sixth batch for free.

    The same goes for the double batch. Pay for five double
    batches ($40 each) and the sixth double batch is free.

    Once you complete a Soap Club card, after your free batch,
    the card goes into a monthly draw and the winner gets another free batch.
    Whether it’s a free single or double batch depends on which card you’ve completed.

    You can then begin a new card. You cannot share a Club Card with a
    friend or family member. Each person will have their own Soap Club Card.

    What type of soap can you make to receive a stamp on your Soap Club Card?

    Cold Process:

    Includes all of the same ingredients that
    are available during class time.

    Organic coconut oil, organic olive oil, pre-mixed sodium hydroxide,
    essential oils, colors and special oils (sweet almond, grapeseed etc).

    Hot process:

    Includes all of the same ingredients that are available during class time.

    Organic coconut oil, organic olive oil, pre-mixed sodium hydroxide,
    essential oils, colors and special oils (sweet almond, grapeseed etc),
    hydrosol’s, wine, beer and tea

    Liquid soap:

    Organic coconut oil, organic olive oil, pre-mixed potassium hydroxide,
    use of phenolphthalein, ph balancers (citic acid and potassium hydroxide).

    liquid soap makers, please stay in the studio and work with your liquid soap until
    it reaches the paste phase. I will continue to look after the cooking process and
    we can make arrangements for you to come back and dilute your soap for testing and balancing the pH.

    Guidelines and other benefits to using your Soap Club Card:

    Soap Club cardholders also receive 10% off ingredients and products.

    This does not include classes.

    The cardholder must have at least one stamp on their loyalty card in
    order to be eligible for a discount.

    There is a 1 year time limit to use up the card and the due date will be
    written on the back of the card. (1 year from the date of your first stamp).

    You must have taken the classes in order to make the soap during studio time.

    For example, if you have only taken the cold process class, you cannot
    make hot process or liquid soap during studio time.

    I will be in the studio to help you. I don’t expect you to remember how to
    make your soap step-by-step and I will be there to guide you through.

    You cannot share a Soap Club Card with a friend or family member.
    Each person will have their own Soap Club Card.
