Green Lotus Organics' in-house artisan employs more than 25 years of soap-making experience and natural and organic ingredients to provide students with attentive hands-on instruction. In the course of two soap-making classes, students are led start-to-finish through the steps of making all-natural soap bars, and, by the end of the final class, make their very own one-pound bar of soap, which they can cutup into slices for easier washing and slipperier sandwiches. The lotion-making course covers the ins and outs of creating liquid skin-food as students create their own batches of lotion, body butter, and a lotion bar. The small class sizes ensure plenty of student-teacher interaction, with instructors offing tips of sage advice and preventing students from accidentally creating the universe's most effective soap, antimatter.
