Soap Making
Making soap is a basic chemical reaction between fats or oils and lye; that is it!

In this atelier, you will learn the traditional cold-process soap using natural oils and lye. You will also learn how to choose oils and infuse healing properties.   

We have it all here, but if you like to add your personal touch and take your soaps home, bring with you:

  • Some vegetable oils;
  • A fragrance or an essential oil, as desired;
  • A natural or synthetic colorant, as desired;
  • A mold to pour the raw soap into;

And let your creative inspirations flow and make all sorts of wonderful soap creations!

Acting is the “Art of Making Believe”.

In order to deliver true feelings to the audience, the actor has to be real. In this atelier, participants will learn self-awareness through different exercises and acting techniques such as breathing, body language, voice, rhythm, and timing. In addition, they will acquire tips on interacting with the camera and the audience.

Participants will exercise “Teamwork” at its best, from brainstorming for more creativity, to communicating, listening, and emotions exchange, to end up with perfect synchronization.
