Let’s make soap! In this class students will learn about the history of soap, how it has changed over the centuries, and modern soap making methods. Then, we’ll get into making soap itself! Beginning with a plain soap base, students will have the opportunity to make their own batch of custom crafted Fresh Snow soap.
