Yay! I'm excited to be offering my
Hands On Soap Making Classes

In class we first go over and discuss each step of the process, the ingredients, tools and the chemistry of how Cold Process Soap is safely made.
Then students watch me make a batch and then everyone makes a batch that you'll take home and cut into bars.
You'll make around 8 average sized bars
There'll be three scent choices to choose from, a floral blend, a minty herbal blend, or coconut cinnamon blend along with some color choices.
We'll use only organic and natural ingredients for making our soaps.

Here's a tell all blog post from some ladies who took my class a few years ago.
There'll be a couple changes in ingredients that we'll use here in Hawaii, but you'll get a full idea of the class.

The class is four hours long so be sure to eat a snack before class - 'cuz once we get started there's no stopping until we're done.
The class size is limited to six adult participants. It's hard for me to watch over any more than that.

Class cost is $75 and a $25 materials fee.

The next scheduled class will be Tuesday, October 17th.
12:00 pm. to 4:00 pm.

The class location is:
The Stables
Hawaiian Shores Community Center

(Old Polo Grounds) 15-859 Kahakai Blvd, Pahoa, HI 96778

Wear some old casual art clothes to class that you won't mind getting an oil spot on - not that you will, but you might... and some closed toe sneakers.
And bring an ipad or something that has internet access so I can show you how an online lye calculator works.
