From colorants to essential oils and fragrance and the science and math behind recipe building to lining a mold, everything a beginner may need to know is covered in this course. Both soaps pictured are demonstrated in step by step videos.
This class covered quite a lot of information. I was not expecting to learn exactly what occurs during saponification. While it isn’t necessary to know for making soap, no one really explains this. Also, I really felt the recipe formulation information was worth its weight in gold. Everything was thorough.
This course was excellent for a beginner ! I learned so much at my own pace ! This was a plus for a working artisan.
I loved this class! I can’t wait to start the next one…
This class is also available in person at local classes in North Carolina.
