I am super excited to announce (to anyone who doesn’t follow our Facebook page), that we have begun planning and preparation for our VERY FIRST event! We will be hosting a soap making workshop in conjunction with our friend Sandra Walker (formerly of Free Home Farm). We have decided to limit the event to 10 open spots for guests. One spot is $10, which gets you your very own bar of homemade, lye based soap! We will be using various herbs and essential oils in the soaps, so if you’re planning on coming, bring your ideas! Refreshments will be provided. The workshop will start at 1 o’clock in the afternoon on April 14 (Saturday), and run until we have the soaps in the molds and they have begun to cure (could take 2-3 hours or 1 hour, depending on the turn out). I made the event BYOB for anyone wanting to bring their own spirits along.
I am excited to learn how to make lye soaps myself, and am even more excited for the opportunity to learn with others, and converse with other interested parties. If you’d like a spot, let me know. The $10 is due the week before, by April 7, so that we can gather necessary supplies prior to the workshop.
I am asking that, due to limited parking space, people attempt to carpool. We will be having people park at the top of the driveway in the cul-de-sac, and we will cart you down to the house in the truck.
I am so looking forward to this event! Can’t wait to see who turns out for this fun spring day of learning!
