Introduction to Cold Process Soapmaking will teach participants how to make handmade soap with simple ingredients and little equipment. During the class we will make a batch of soap and cover:
Safety gear and precautions
Basic cold process chemistry
Ingredient selection and storage
How to create your own recipes
How to cut, cure and store soaps
Each participant will leave with a bar of soap and a resource guide to help continue the adventure at home!
How do I get to the venue and where can I find parking?
This class will be held at Urbanum Detroit in New Center, located on the west side of Woodward between Milwaukee Avenue and West Grand Boulevard. Urbanum is accessible by public transportation on the Woodward bus (#4) and the QLine (Grand Blvd. stop). Drivers may find metered parking along Woodward, Cass, W.
