Goat Milk Soap and Lotion Making Class!
Come to the farm to learn to make Soap and Lotion with milk from our own goats! You’ll learn to make an all natural goat’s milk and olive oil soap and goat’s milk and coconut oil lotion. You’ll take home everything you make! Once you take your soap home, cut it and cure it, you’ll have 20-24 bars and you’ll take home about 8 oz of lotion.
We use the cold process method, mixing lye with the goat’s milk. Because of the precautions required in making lye based soap, we cannot allow children under the age of 16 at the class. But, you are welcome to come and then teach your kids at home!
Some supplies are required (see below).
Students Provide The Following Supplies for Soap/Lotion Class:
Tall Stainless steel pot. (Arc), Wooden spoon, Candy Thermometer (Walmart or Ace or Grocery Store), Stick Blender (Ace), Rubber dishwashing gloves, Eye Protection (sunglasses work fine), 2 Rubber Spatulas, 1 Glass, Ceramic or Stainless Steel Bowl (Arc). (All of these items will be used only for soap making in the future…you won’t be able to cook in them again, so be sure they are things you don’t mind giving up in the name of soap making)
The Goat Cheese Lady will provide all other supplies.
See the Schedule of Classes.
Soap And Lotion Class Graduates!!
Sandy and Gloria graduated from the Soap and Lotion class on January 8, 2011. They had both attended soap making classes at other locations before, but had never made Goat Milk Soap! Sandy is a chemistry teacher and plans to teach other teachers how to do it in April!
“The goat’s milk soap making class was a delicious experience – as delicious as the goat’s milk itself. The small class size made the experience very hands on and allowed for lots of questions. Lindsey has clearly mastered the art of soap and lotion making and the use of her own goat’s milk really brings this craft home!” - Sandy and Gloria
Barbara and Janet graduated from the Soap and Lotion Making Class on December 4, 2010!
They are sisters and plan to take the Just Cheese Making class also!
“Healthy! Fun! Learning experience!! Love goats!! Teacher was so great and patient with everything! Getting back to earthy living and the basics.” -Janet
“I loved the class. I loved that Lindsey was so careful about chemical usage. I have taken other classes before and this was by far the best! So educational at the same time fun. Can’t wait for the cheese class!” - Barbara
Trina graduated from the Soap and Lotion Making Class on December 5, 2010.
“I am pleased with all the soaps and lotion I made in one afternoon!”
