In a world of endless choice and stuff and chemicals, how lovely to have the skills to cover some of your own basic needs at home using simple ingredients. We are thrilled to welcome back highly experienced soap makers and workshop facilitators Kathrin Brunner and Andrew Hodge of For the Love of Body for this educational hands-on afternoon.
Kathrin and Andrew will demonstrate how to make two kinds of soap: a glycerine based melt and pour soap and a traditional cold-process soap using natural oils and lye to make soap from scratch. Both options are free of animal products.
You will learn how to infuse soaps with different healing properties, which oils to use and various soap-making techniques prior to making your own soap. You'll leave the workshop with an instructional booklet and several bars of soap. As with all of their classes, they offer a full follow-up support to help you become a soap making master.
Lather yourself up! Barter with friends for their garden-grown goods! Give the nicest smelling gifts in town!
No experience needed, and all supplies are provided.
Saturday, March 23rd, 1-4 pm at Watson & Lou, 383 Water St. Peterborough.
