      Soap Making - Holiday on the Farm Workshop Festival

      Discover the simple method of cold-process soapmaking from scratch! Learn how to (safely) combine lye with a variety of fixed oils ranging from olive oil to lard. We will be exploring the use of additives and their properties, along with carrier oils, fragrance oils, essential oils, scents, nutrients, exfoliants, and colorants to create just the right bar of soap for you. You will make your own 1 lb. batch of soap to take home – enough for 5 large bars! Location: Creamery Classroom Class Fee: Members $70, including lunch. Non-members $80, including lunch. All materials included. Requires advance registration, limited to 6 participants. Your workshop includes a great boxed lunch, and you may choose from the following options: Turkey or Ham Sandwich Chicken, Ham or Hummus Wrap Salad with or without Chicken, avocado optional. All lunches come with a cookie, bottle of water and a bag of chips. Please let John Ferguson (j.ferguson@farmersmuseum.org)  know of your choice by 4 pm on Monday, November 12th.  Due to the use of lye in this class, please wear full-length sleeves and leg coverings, as well as closed-toe shoes. You will also need to bring elbow-length rubber gloves and an apron. All other materials will be provided.
