Beginner Soap Making Class

July 23 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Soap making is a rewarding process which leaves you with a product you can use many times.


Soap making can be a very rewarding process as the final product is something you can use every day until it’s gone. In this class we will be utilizing the cold method of soap making, which will involve the use of lye and a few different fats and oils. All soap making ingredients will be provided, so just bring yourself! No prior experience is necessary, but if you have done some soap making in the past, feel free to reach out and tell us about your experience.


Q: What age is this class for?

A: Due to the use of lye we are limiting this class to 13+ with anyone below the age of 16 to be accompanied by an adult.

Q: Should I bring anything?

A: Yes! We highly encourage that you bring your masks as we will be using lye in our soap making recipe, which can cause lung irritations if inhaled too deeply. 

Q: Is using lye dangerous?

A: Not particularly. Instructors will be aiding in the use of lye and safety gloves and eye protection will be provided. Feel free to bring your mask as well as an extra precaution.

Q: Will I be able to take my soap home?

A: Absolutely! Soap does take a little while to harden however, so be prepared to come back to Catalyst Space the next day to pick up the finished product.
