Soap-mak­ing

Time Out Malaysia Kids - - Learning -

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!
