Learn to Make Cold Process Soap

Come learn how to make handmade, organic cold process soap with the fabulous Angela Carillo of Alegna Soap! This class is held on the Upper West Side at a great studio inside Little Shop of Crafts. Class size is limited to 10 students, so sign up today!

Each student will receive hands-on experience, an information-packed class handout with instructions, recipes and valuable supplier list.

You will learn safety guidelines and reach a level of comfort so that you can finally make soap by hand at home! We'll discuss how to formulate your own recipes, properly use and store lye, mixing lye and water, oils for soap making, fragrance oils vs. essential oils, superfatting, additives and exfoliants, coloring, molding and curing. Students will receive soap recipes and a list of my favorite places to buy soap making supplies and equipment.

Each student will take home handmade soap made in class.
