DIY Soap and Candle Making
Saturday, November 25th 11-5pm

@ the School Farm


Come join us for a day of practical kitchen magic as we turn lye and vegetable
oils into luscious and healthy soap scented with essential oils, and all made off
the grid with pedal power and solar heating. We'll also show how to make simple
beeswax candles with hand built clay holders. Either one makes a perfect homemade
holiday gift, and gives us insight into how the stuff we use everyday is made,
especially the soap!

12pm - Candle making workshop including hand building our own candle holders with art clay.
1pm - Off the grid Soapmaking workshop using our pedal powered mixer and solar heater
for melting the oils. We'll cover materials saftey, mixing, adding essential oils and setting.

3-5pm - More discussion, candle making and hangin' out
