    Soap Making

    (1)
    Are you feeling down? Well, you know what they say -- "Lather is the best medicine!" In this two-hour workshop, Erica Recto will walk you through the process of creating your own bars of soap. With an emphasis on the long-lasting quality of handmade and slow-made objects, Erica's work results in high-quality aromas and colors that are integral to a well-made product. She will break down the process for you step-by-step to explain the basics of creating your own combination of scents and textures. By the end of the class, you will leave with your own batch (about 1 pound, or 4 bars) of your very own soap. We don't think this class will make you sweat, but if it does, at least you're going home with some fresh soap!
