Pittsburgh Producers Series: Natural Soapmaking with Apothecary Muse
Pittsburgh is loaded with talented makers and a few rise to the top as excellent producers of goods, with amazing products, a pure love for what they do and make with love for what they do. As part of our new Pittsburgh Producers Series, we highlight some of the makers to share the basics with you on making a great product that they love. Apothecary Muse will host a hands-on class blending science and art for the local soap enthusiast. Students will use all natural materials, learn safe handling practices, the basics of plant chemistry and fatty acid profiles. You will learn about natural scents, all the supplies, where to order and resources as you delve into soap making. Different techniques and blending processes will be covered in subsequent classes, so students may opt to register for repeat classes or just take just one. They will take home a small batch of the custom soap they made with instructions for cutting into atleast 4 bars at home.
Students should come prepared to work in a laboratory setting wearing long sleeves, pants, and closed toe shoes. Goggles, gloves and aprons will be provided.
