Chris will lead us in this fun-filled activity where we will all make swirled soap!

This will be a team project, by tables of six attendees each.


"A plain square column or spindle and 6 or more colors make up the design for the column swirl cold process soap project. The shape of the column dictates the swirl and colors tell the story. Every bar of soap, in the batch, will appear to be individually made by you."

Join us for a fun time of learning and networking with fellow soap makers

while also having time to rest and relax!
