Making Courses Might Help
Every now and then I see some mention of soap
making courses being offered somewhere. It
really might be helpful
to some people to attend such a class.
Personally I've never had a soap making class in my
life. And I've made a whole lot of really nice soap.
But, like I said, a
class might be a good thing.
I imagine though that most of what you're going to
learn in a soap class won't do a lot of good. You're
really going to have to just mix up some soap and have a
go at it. You'll learn as you make a few messes. It
probably won't be all that many messes though.
Let's face it, making
soap is really pretty simple.
All you're doing is mixing
a lye and water solution with fats or oils.
You have to have the right amount of each. You have to
do things in a certain order too.
Soap Making Courses As A Short-Cut
There are easy ways to find the right amount of each
ingredient to use. There is also a lot of information on
how the various oils work as soap oils. The information
to formulate soap is all quite easily obtained.
Part of the problem with trying to learn to make soap
is all that information. It's a bit overwhelming. When I
got started a few years ago there was much less
information out there and it was still confusing. It was
hard to get a straight answer on what I thought were
simple questions. It's a lot worse now.
When you step back and just look at the basics it's
really quite simple really.
It's just getting a few ingredients mixed together in
the right amounts and in the right sequence and you get
You can progress from the basics to add all kinds of
subtle variations. That's where it really gets
interesting and where you might pick up some tips in a
soap making course.
Chances are though that most of the classes will be
pretty basic. After all, if the members of the class are
beginners, getting beyond the basics will confuse them.
That's no way to teach a class.
