This is how we make some beautiful soap!

About once or twice a month, I teach a soapmaking class at The Nova Studio. I really love being able to share what I know about soapmaking. And it gives me a great excuse to try out new techniques and ingredients: it’s research!

This past weekend I taught the first day of the 2-day Soap Making Boot Camp. In that class, I explain and demonstrate all kinds of ways that a soapmaker can make her/his soap more interesting visually. We cover things like swirling, layering and embedding. And I love teaching this class because I get to make 4 different batches of soap, with the students helping me choose colors and cutting out the soap shapes for embedding. Everybody has fun that way!

Here is a slideshow of some shots from the class, and of the soap that we ended up making. Enjoy!
