Class Description

Description

What you'll learn in this soap making class:

Make your own batch of cold process soap in this 2.5-hour, hands-on, in-person immersive soapmaking workshop in the Upper West Side taught by master soapmaker, Marla Bosworth. Students will learn how to use plants and other organic, natural ingredients to make soap from scratch using the cold process method. Each student will design and create their own batch of soap to take home (which equates to eight bars when cut).

What in nature inspires you? What can you share through a beautifully designed botanical soap to inspire others? It might be locally grown produce or honey from the farmer's market, wildcrafted elements from a nature hike or water from a river or stream. This is just a sampling from where we can source our inspiration. 

What makes this class special? With Marla's guidance, you will create your very own batch of soap by selecting botanicals , colorants and making very own essential oil blend. Marla is keeping this class small to work side-by-side with you. You'll also have the pleasure of meeting other interesting and likeminded people.

Student will receive hands-on experience, an information-packed class handout with instructions, recipes and valuable supplier list and of course get to take home a custom batch.


What we will cover:

  • How to work with lye safely (you're going to measure and mix your own), how to formulate a great soap recipe, where to buy supplies and everything "cold process" that you want to know!

More of What Makes This Workshop Unique:

  • A small, intimate class.
  • Each student will bring out their inner alchemist by making their own batch of soap from scratch. You'll select wildcrafted botanicals as well as create your own essential oil blend.

Marla creates high experiential workshops - a holistic perspective of learning by transforming new information. If you've ever attended any of her classes you know the energy she creates is positive, supportive, educational and fun.

    I had a blast learning how to make soap. Marla and Kay provided us with everything to make a legitimate batch of quality soap, along with instructions to easily duplicate the process at home. Highly recommended.

    My two instructors Holly and Angela were Amazing! Collectively they have more than 30yrs of knowledge. They guided us through the safety standards when working lye, safety of equipment and it’s proper use, the different type of oils needed and how to clean and store your area once you complete your project. If you enjoy working with your hands as I do; then you’ll truely love this class and the energy collaboration that they share. You will totally leave there with real knowledge that will bridge the gap between online (Youtube),books, and inspired you to make more soap at home!
