DIY Soap and Candle Making
Sunday, 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!
Activities:
11am-Fire up oven, morning refreshments courtesy of Arizmendi Bakery, and farm work.
12 noon-1pm - DIY 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.
1-2 pm-Break for pizza, and other nutritious, delicious food
2-3 Candle making workshop including hand building our own candle holders with art clay
3-5pm - More discussion, candle making and hangin' out
As always, the ovens will be blazing and we'll provide the dough so bring some pizza toppings, or some other local, seasonal fare to share and compare at our ultra-local potluck.
