Kick-off a great Mother’s Day Weekend with an activity you can do together! You and your child will learn to create gorgeous designs with melt-and-pour (MP) glycerin soap. MP is an excellent choice for a beginner soap making project – with no lye to handle and no cure time involved, each participant will leave class with finished, gem-like, sparkly soap ready for use. Choose between making full-sized or creating adorable “minis” – perfect for guests, favors, or friends! In this two-hour class, we’ll use shimmery cosmetic micas with your choice of clear or white bases, plus creative flourishes (like soap “gummy” bears, curls, hearts and…mermaid tails!), to create unique works of soap art. You’ll leave with finished, packaged, gorgeous little soaps and wonderful memories of making them together!
This class will be held at BVSD Arapahoe Campus, 6600 Arapahoe Rd, Boulder, CO 80303. Cost: $60/person + $25 for supplies, register here.
