All of my workshops are in person only. Do not reserve a spot or pay for a class if you do not live in the Northern New York area. My workshop is located in Lisbon, New York in St. Lawrence County.
This class will teach you the basics of making hot process soap in a crockpot. You will be weighing out oils, fats, and lye. (We take safety precautions when working with the lye so rest assured, you’ll be fine. It’s not as scary as you may think!) After weighing everything we mix it together in the crockpot and let it do its thing for a while (by that I mean that it slowly heats up and turns into what looks like applesauce!). After it’s done cooking it needs to cool down so that the essential oils that we will be adding don't just burn away. While the soap is cooling you will create your own blend of essential oils to add to your soap.
Each participant walks away with one mold full of soap which they can cut into 3-4 bars.
The fee for the class is $40 and includes all materials, you don't need to bring a thing except if you have a particular essential oil that you would like to add. I usually offer lavender, eucalyptus, peppermint, orange, rosemary, and lemon.
My soap workshop is located at 225 Wood Road, Lisbon.
Off of rt. 28, near what used to be Miller’s Greenhouse. If you need further directions, just let me know.
When you arrive, please pull in the driveway and park on the grass to the right-hand side of the driveway. If you would park facing the fence then we could fit more cars in.
Winter parking: we are going to try to keep the grass area cleared of snow but if we’ve had a lot of snow and couldn’t clear it please park in the driveway as usual. It’s a pretty wide driveway so you should be able to park side by side.
To enter the shop, walk around to the left side of the garage and around to the back (follow the red brick path and lights!) The entrance to my workshop is on the backside of the building.
Any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me!
