    Soap Making

    These days, there's no telling what's in the soap you buy in stores. In some cases, you might not want to know. DIY soap is the best way to eliminate that mystery. During this introductory soapmaking class, you'll be using goat's milk as the base to make a natural, gentle soap. A veteran soaper will first give you an introduction into the world of soap making techniques, then you'll be immersed in hands-on exercises that will lead to you producing your very own soap. At the end of the class, you'll even get to take two bars home with you. Of course, you might be too busy showing them off to friends to ever use them.
