Workshop - Soap Making with Dawn Kitching
Please check in-store for current availability...
Nothing better than spending a Sunday afternoon creating... especially amazing soap!
Get hands-on and grow-your-confidence using carrier oils such as olive, coconut, grapeseed and castor in the soap making process. The special holiday bar you'll make in class is aquamarine-blue and we will be adding aquamarine oxide-pigment to achieve this gorgeous colour, as well as ground pine needles infused in olive oil, and essential oils of pine and rosemary. This will all come together as a four-pound loaf, with each participant taking home one love-infused bar!
A note from your instructor, Dawn: The pine in this recipe is symbolic of saying, “I miss you” while the rosemary says, “I’ll remember you until we can be together again”… this Blue Holiday Bar was created as a gift for a friend whom I was not able to spend time over the holidays… you’ll love the aromas and texture of this soap, whether you keep it or share it with a friend too!
Registration for this workshop includes detailed instructions and hands-on experience on how to create high-quality soap using natural ingredients. The soap you make in class requires an extended curing process, so your instructor is making a batch ahead of time so all participants can take a fully cured bar home.
