Soap and Art Fusion

Hard to believe, but these are actual soap carvings. Turning humble fruits, vegetables and, even, soap into gorgeous pieces of art sculpture is a talent developed and cultivated by Kae Sa Luk, a grandmaster of this inimitable culinary art.

Carving Institute was established in Bangkok based on the culmination of over seven centuries of history and heritage in this art form. Soap carvings are colored using a batik process. It's truly amazing that these masterpieces are hand carved from just a block of soap.

Tired of making traditional CP and Melt and Pour Soaps? Consider a week long course at the Carving Institute and learn soap sculpting. Classes take place on weekdays from 9 am until 3 pm leaving afternoons and evenings free to explore and enjoy the many and varied attractions of Bangkok. The course takes five days. A great adventure in learning for your next vacation (and a possible a tax deduction as well!)
