If you want a soap that you can use minutes after it is made, then melt and pour soap is for you!

In this fun workshop, you will learn about the types of melt and pour soap bases, the basics of melting your soap, various options for coloring and scenting, different and creative molds, and how to cut and package your soap. After covering the basics, you will learn and practice techniques such as layering, embedding, marbling, making soap embeds, and adding additives to your soap. The class uses a high quality natural soap base that is SLS-free and has no animal ingredients. You will receive a helpful handout and make and take home four impressive full sized bars of soap, all packaged and ready to gift. Each student will learn how to make & take home:

  • Loofah Soap
  • Layered Soap
  • Soap with Embeds
  • Marbled Soap

Melanie Monteverde has been coming to The Nova Studio since 2006 and has taken (and been a teacher's assistant) for nearly every class taught by Lori! She is an avid crafter who enjoys knitting, beading, pouring natural candles, and making bath and body products. Her kitchen gets more use from making bath and body products than it does from cooking! She has taught students of all ages, ranging from preschoolers to adults in a corporate setting.
