Soapmaking 101 Workshop: Soap from Scratch 
Octagon Center for the Arts, 9:30 a.m. - 12 p.m. 
Explore the art and science of making soap from scratch. Using the centuries-old, cold-process soapmaking technique, students will combine plant-based oils and lye to create soaps that are mild, moisturizing and eco-friendly. Each participant will create a one pound batch of their own custom batch of soap just in time for holiday gift-giving. Long sleeves, long pants and closed-toe shoes are required of all participants. (Younger students may be able to participate with advance permission from instructor.) This workshop is for ages 16 and over and costs $48. For more information and to register, please visit online. There is a class limit of eight students.
