Getting little ones to wash their hands or shower isn’t always an easy task. That could change if they sign up for a soapmaking class at The Craft Crowd, possibly one of coolest art spaces in KL. The two and half hour class covers the process of soap making’s fundamentals, from calculating formulas to lye handling. Budding soap artisans will receive their own ingredients, gloves and aprons to wear as they whip up their own concoctions. The kids are free to choose their own scents, colours and shapes. Classes are kept small (ten to 15 kids at a time) and everything is provided, including refreshment because tummies are known to growl after adding cocoa powder to a batch of soap!
