* Soapmaking IntensiveSoapmaking Intensive

Time: 10:00 am

In this workshop with La Shonda Tyree, who turned her hobby and passion for making her own soaps and lotions into a highly successful business, we will learn how to make a range of exquisite self-care products. We will begin by discovering the history and chemistry of soapmaking, and the safety practices required to manufacture soap. We will then get hands-on instruction in soapmaking using sodium hydroxide with the cold process method. We will explore how to unleash our creativity by customizing our soaps with colors, fragrances and/or essential oils; learn how to create luxurious soaps using alternative liquids such as Goat’s Milk; and make fabulous swirl patterns and embedding designs utilizing a couple of different methods that will make your soaps rival mass market soaps. Other topics will include: resources for supplies and industry websites; proper product labeling and preservation; and tips on how to start a business.
