I'm teaching at Windy Point September 23rd & 24th

I'm so excited to be returning to Windy Point Soap in Calgary, Alberta, on September 23rd and 24th to teach four half day classes!

Solid shampoo and conditioner bars - Saturday morning

Liquid shampoo and conditioners - Saturday afternoon

Facial products - Sunday morning.
This is an all new class with all new formulas exclusive to Windy Point including a foaming gelled facial cleanser with foaming silk, a moisturizing Asian skin care style toner with extracts, two micellar waters, and a cold process moisturizer.

Advanced lotion making - Sunday afternoon.
Join this advanced lotion making class to learn how to increase and decrease the water phase, increase and decrease the oil phase, modify an existing formula to use a new emulsifier, and how to add botanical extracts, proteins, hydrosols, and more. We will have a few formulas to follow, but we'll be adjusting it as per the interests of those attending. This is truly an improv type class! (I'm so excited about this!!!)

Please note for this class you will be expected to know how to interpret a formula in percentages, scale a formula up and down, use a digital scale, and understand the concept of emulsification, how to heat and hold, and the differences between a preservative and anti-oxidant and when to use each as there will be no time to cover these concepts during the class. Ideally, you will have made many lotions at home and wish to attend this class to understand how to alter your existing formulas, learn new formulas, or learn how to use new emulsifiers.

We had so much fun last time, and I can't wait to visit Michele and Keith again, and teach some classes in Calgary!
