Make Your Own Soap
Partnership with Duke Arts Create & Co-Lab Roots
About the Workshop
Soap… We all use it. It’s the most important invention in human history, but do you know where it comes from or how it’s made? Join us in this fun arts and crafts class where we learn how to make sudsy bars of usefulness. We’ll also learn how modern tools like 3D printing and online chemistry calculators can improve on this age-old process.
We will provide 1 soap making kit per student, all the gear to get you started and a few varieties of fragrances and dyes. If you would like a specific scent for your soap, feel free to bring your own essential oils. There are a limited number of spots for this workshop, so register today
NOTE: This event will take place outdoors and will be capped at 6 people to allow for proper social distancing.
