ABOUT THIS EVENT

Arts & DIY

Event Overview

In this workshop, start out by making a poured soap. Learn this hands-on, step-by-step method to create a unique colorful and scent-filled body soap. Think about lavender soap with sprigs of lavender… or maybe an oatmeal soap with little flecks of oatmeal for texture. The possibilities are limitless. They make the perfect gift and fun to make! While your pour soaps are curing, there is a detailed demonstration showing how to do create soap using the cold-process method (these soaps are made from lye, natural oils, natural color, and fragrances). This class is filled with tons of useful knowledge about how to make soap at home, proper tools and techniques, and the many different making and baking methods. You'll take away your finished pour soap you made in the class, along with another full-sized bar of soap made by the cold process method. Roll up your sleeves and get clean! It’s time to make soap!

    I had a great time here with my friends. The teacher was knowledgable, entertaining, and fun. We got to make some soap ourselves as well as watch another type of soap making technique, and the soaps we made we were able to take home. I would recommend this experience and hope to do other experiences here in the future.

    Joseph was an amazing host! We had a great time making our soaps. I feel confident that I could do this on my own with the easy steps we were shown.

    Loved the class! It was fun and exciting to learn how to make soap. Now I know what everyone is getting for Christmas: HAND MADE SOAP!!! 😁 The place is easy to find, the room is cozy and nicely decorated. I am definitely going back for more classes!

    We had SO much fun at this soap making class! I had no idea what to expect walking in as this was my first class and ended up having the best time. Joe was super friendly, informative and entertaining, and so was his team who was also in helping out. The venue he has cultivated is so cozy and cool, it was such a great place to learn and drink wine on a snowy Chicago night. The soap we made looks and smells amazing, I can't wait to test it out. I've already suggested the class/venue to a ton of friends, and am already planning my next class over there.

    My middle school daughter and I went to this class and the teacher was great-- he gave us all of the directions to make soap and we took the bars home that we made. He kept us engaged, it was a nice group of people to take the class with, I highly recommend it!
