Teens will make their own fun and quirky swirl soap using a glycerin based soap, colorful soap curls, color, cosmetic glitter and a variety of scents. We will discuss the process of making cold process soap, blending of essential oils and the role of exfoliants in soap making. There is no lye exposure since the process does not involve traditional soap making techniques. Once the concoction has cooled slightly, we will add the glitter, colors, essential oil (optional) and embed the soap curls. At the end of the workshop each participant will take their handmade creation home, it can be removed from the mold the following day and used right away.
For entering Grades 6 - 12 only. Online registration required and starts on June 28. Space is limited.
