Learn how to make natural soap using wine as your soapmaking liquids. Sounds scary? Well, with a few safety precautions you can create a unique line of soaps using white or red wines from your local vineyards. This class will teach you the chemistry of what happens when you use wine as your liquid, what to expect, how to create a safe formula, and how to make these types of soap. You will leave with a 1 lb batch of both red and white wine soaps to observe while curing. This is the perfect class to take if you leave near a winery and would like to market natural soap to them, for them, or to capitalize on a new product line.

- Hazards and safety issues when working with sodium hydroxide & alcoholic beverages
