Soap Making 101

  • @ groundcover 209 Main Street Bridgton, Maine 04009 (map)

Come have some fun and learn to make your own soap! The folks from Lally Broch Farm will be at Groundcover in Bridgton, ME to help take you through all of the steps to make your own "Cold Processed" artisan Goat's Milk soap or (if you prefer) Vegan soaps- perfect for gifts or for your own personal use!

This class is suitable for people ages 7+. Parents/Guardians are encouraged to bring their child to create a batch of soap together. Soap making can be hazardous so please consider the child's maturity when making your reservation. We want this to be a fun and positive experience for everyone. :) Each student ticket ($50) can be used to reserve 1 adult OR 1 adult and 1 child working together to make 1 batch (8 bars) of soap. If you will each be creating your own batches of 8 soaps each, 2 tickets are required.

What you NEED to Know:
We will guide you in creating 8 bars of soap (a $56 value). The cost of the class is $50 per person and includes all the materials necessary to create your own soaps. Pre-registration is required. You may choose to bring your own soap molds or purchase a professional silicone mold from us (order in advance by April 12, 2019) to bring your soaps home with you that night. OR you may use our molds and we will return your soaps to Groundcover for you to pick up about a week after our class is held. Each student will receive a 3-page hand-out after class detailing our soap making method, three soap recipes (including the one we create together) and a list of resources for supplies. Seating is limited to eight students so that we can provide personal attention and answer questions. Don't delay in reserving your spot. :) We hope to see you there!

Our Cold Process Soap Ingredients: Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil, Sunflower Oil, and (responsibly sourced) Palm oil. Sodium Hydroxide.

Assorted Optional Additions: Essential Oils, Dried flowers and herbs, Clay, etc.
