What you'll learn in this soap making class:

This course is Organic * Vegan * Cruelty-Free * Palm-Free


This is a 3-hour, hands-on, immersive soapmaking workshop taught by a master soapmaker. In this class 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 botancial 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 our guidance, you will create your very own batch of soap by selecting botancials, colorants and making very own essential oil blend. Angela 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.

We create highly 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.

Question from Cindy L.
I'm 6 months pregnant, is it safe for me to attend the Cold Process Soap Workshop?
Answer from Marla B. Verified Educator
We use sodium hydroxide/lye for cold process soapmaking. Although I keep the room well-ventilated and all the students wear masks, I would recommend checking with your ob/GYN doctor first. My instinct is to say no, but I have had pregnant women choose to attend in the past.
