Saturday, October 9, 3:30 pm – 6:30 pm, and Sunday, October 10, 1:00 pm – 6:30 pm – Soapmaking

Cold-process soap is made from scratch using vegetable oils and lye.  Learn the basics while making a batch of honey-oatmeal soap, then experiment with colors and fragrances.  Soap made in class can be picked up the next day or next week.  Glycerin soap is already made, but can be personalized with scents, colors, pearlescent powders, flowers or embedded items.  Soap will be ready by the end of class.  Both classes, taught by instructor Kymberlee Keckler at the Eliot School  of Fine and Applied Arts, 24 Eliot Street in Jamaica Plain, include written instructions and resource guides for venturing out on your own.  Take one workshop or both – all materials are supplied.  Easy Glycerin Soap will take place Saturday, October 9 from 3:30 – 6:30, and Cold-process Soap will be held Sunday, October 10, from 1 – 6:30.  The cost for Easy Glycerin Soap is $30 plus $10 materials fee payable in class, and for Cold-process Soap, $50 plus $10 materials fee payable in class.  Take both sessions for $70.  To register, and for complete information and directions, log on to
