Carnegie Hall’s 2023 classes and workshops continue Saturday, Mar. 11, from 10 a.m. to noon, with an Appalachian Heritage Class – Beginner Soapmaking with Tommye Rafes. This class allows students to have a hand-on experience right away by participating in the introduction-style class followed by a design your own soap pour class on the same day.
“Beginning Soapmaking” gives the student information about oils, butters, fragrances, and essential oils so that students can create their own soaps. Rafes will demonstrate how to make your own all-natural soap from scratch using natural ingredients, how to calculate how much soap is needed to fill a mold, and how to create your own recipes. Each student will go home with a beginner’s recipe for making soap and one bar of homemade soap.
Section 1 takes place on Saturday, Mar. 11, and Section 2 takes place on Saturday, Mar. 18. Both sections are from 10 a.m. to noon. Cost is $40 ($35 for members). Class size is limited and students must be at least 18 years old.
Once students have taken the beginner class, there are four different pour technique hands-on workshops from which to choose. Two are on the same day as the beginner classes, so students can do all in one day.
