-Herbal Soap-making Workshop

-Make your own natural soap with local herbs in time for holiday gift giving.  Using the cold process method, we'll create a vegetable oil soap filled with your choice of herbs and essential oils. You will learn techniques for achieving various colors with plant dyes, different qualities various oils will impart to your finished soap, how to calculate the required amounts of lye and water for your recipe, and safe handling of lye and the lye solution. You'll take home recipes, instructions, a list of ingredients suppliers and soap-making resources, and the soap made in the workshop in a reusable, insulating box. Please bring rubber gloves, goggles, and a heavy towel or blanket to use over the soap insulating box. Please pack a sack lunch. Instructor: Robin Mari, of Mari Botanicals, has been inspired by plants and flowers from a very young age and has been creating herbal products for over twenty years. She teaches regularly and loves to share information, techniques and plant stories. 10 am-2 pm
