All-Day Soap Making Bootcamp on March 21; Meet New Friends & Aspiring Soapmakers!

Our monthly, full-day soap making class has been a huge hit the past two years, and March is no exception! Join me for a day of making beautiful, glycerin soaps.

This month, soap making bootcamp is Saturday, March 21 from 9-4 in my Duxbury, Massachusetts studio. We are located 30 minutes south of Boston.

Class is completely hands-on; students will learn how to measure their own batches, color, scent and pour the soap into molds.

(The photo on the top is of Sandy and her top three favorite soaps from February Bootcamp. She is from Harvard Business School and ranks at the top as one of my favorite students: fearless, creative, and fun! Here she is showing her ocean sea glass embedded soap, two-layer creamsicle soap, and orange starfish with coconut soap!)

Go at your own pace, I'll be there to assist you throughout the day. We'll learn the basics: adding various exfoliants, herbs, herbal and oil fusions, superfatting with shea butter and other moisturizing oils.

(These are just some of the additives you'll use in class!)

Then we'll move on to techniques, including embedding, swirling, layering, simultaneous double-pours, and other special effects.

Some students take this class with a friend, and then swap creations at the end of the day. This soap making class is completely hands-on, which means you won't be standing around watching an instructor for the day. You'll have your own workstation. (See picture on left.)

This is the perfect class to jump in and learn everything you wanted to know about soap making in one day. It is also a great class to take if you are making wedding favors or stocking up on gifts to give.

A bit about your instructor for the day. My name is Marla Bosworth, and I'm the founder and owner of Back Porch Soap Company. I've been making soaps and teaching soapmaking for 12 years. My wholesale clients include Whole Foods and upscale boutiques around the world. I teach classes because I love sharing my passion for soap making.

Price for the full-day class is $325. Lunch is included in the fee, as are all supplies. Plan to make approximately 10 individual batches and take home around 50 bars (which retail at $6.00 each).

(The photo to the right isn't lunch, it's some of the early morning pastries that I pick up for you from world famous French Memories of Duxbury.)

Students must prepay to register. Sign up now! Check out my other classes while you're there.
