Upcoming Events

Members of the handcrafted soap and cosmetic industry like to get together to talk shop, network and learn new soap and cosmetic making techniques. Soapmaking groups around the country and the world often have "gatherings" of various kinds. Those that have been submitted to the HSMG are listed below. NOTE: This list does not include classes held by HSCG Teachers, which can be found on our Find Classes page.
