Join Jan - for a class in making herbal and vegetable based soaps. Together we shall make an excellent basic herbal soap recipe and a batch of a surprise exotic soap. We shall explore different ingredients, methods and sources that you might use to make a variety of exciting soaps. You will learn about simple equipment necessary to make soap, some trouble-shooting tips, a few historical tidbits and ways of decorating/icing your soaps.
