Artisan Workshop: Soap Making
Learn new ways to enhance your well-being and that of greater Philadelphia through new one-session workshops focused on sustainable living. You will end each workshop with samples and the knowledge to continue crafting on your own at home.
Join Rebecca Hahn, founder, and creator of WillowWildCrafts, and discover how to make soap from scratch! Learn the chemistry behind hot and cold saponification processes, and how to safely combine lye with a variety of fixed oils ranging from olive oil to tallow. We will be exploring the use of additives such as herbal nutrients, exfoliants, colorants and essential oils to create the right bar of soap for you.
All materials will be provided. Each participant will go home with their own bar of soap, a soap mold for making soap in the future, and a handmade booklet of procedures and recipes to help you hone your new skill.
Rebecca is the creatrix behind WillowWildCrafts, a project of small-batch herbal tonics and nourishing self & skincare products. You can find more about her products at www.willowwildcrafts.bigcartel.com.
