Create Your Own Handmade Soap

  • Frigg's Mercantile 2809 Northeast Martin Luther King Junior Boulevard Portland, OR, 97212 United States (map)

Learn to make soap in time for the holidays -- makes a great gift! 

This introductory workshop will cover the basics of cold-process soap making, including common oils, different fragrances, optional additives, colorants, and accommodations for lye safety.

First, follow a demonstration on how to make a batch of soap start-to-finish, with step-by-step instructions along the way. Then: your turn! Each guest will have the opportunity to make their own round of custom soap, with a scent and color of their choice. Depending on comfort-level, we may try throwing in an additive or layering the soap for a cool effect.

Whatever you choose, each attendee will go home with over a pound of their own custom, handmade soap. And, more importantly, the knowledge of how to do it for next time!
