What We've Been Doing

We had a great time at our first meet up!  Together we made a ghost swirl soap (and just used insulation no oven to acheive the effect), bold and bright colors to make a funky funnel pour, and we continued with the bright color theme making pink bubble scoops!  Thanks to all who attended and looking forward to more meet ups!  What are you interested in learning more about?  Do you have a special skill?  Would you like to lead a session and teach others?  Message us with your ideas at: HSCGNewEngland@soapguild.org

Please Join Us!

Our activities are generally open to all. The more the merrier! Getting involved with a local group of like-minded makers is a great way to network and stay connected with others in your field. If you have any questions about what we're doing or how you could be involved, just email us: HSCGNewEngland@soapguild.org.
