Goat’s Milk Soap Workshop

April 29, 2017 at 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

| $95

 

I am not a soap-snob. At least, at one point, I wasn’t a soap-snob.

Whatever was on sale became my family’s soap du-jour. A friend gave me a bar of her goat’s milk soap, determined to change my soap-buying habits. I planned to enjoy her soap until it was gone, and then return to my budget bars. But then…

Our family uses Dancing Goat Soaps exclusively now. If I run out, I experience withdrawal symptoms. It is that special.

Sue Chidester, founder of Dancing Goat Soaps (established on Lummi Island in 2002) uses a formula especially rich in olive oil and goat’s milk. (She chooses to use locally-sourced milk from naturally-raised Kinder Goats because it is higher in butterfat than that of most full-sized dairy goat breeds.) Workshop participants will have a choice between natural essential oils or synthetic oils for fragrance (fragrance-free is also an option!)

This is NOT a melt-and-pour soap class. Crafting home-made soaps from scratch is a skill that takes time and experience to perfect, but following this workshop, you will know everything you need to know to get started. AND, you will go home with a few bars of soap.

Please note that the event fee includes all materials. Most soap-making classes charge a class fee as well as require participants to provide their own costly materials.

 

COMMUNITY CONTRIBUTION: Please bring at least one personal toiletry item to the workshop (toothpaste/toothbrushes, razors, shampoo, etc.) . Items will be donated to The Lighthouse Mission in Bellingham. For more information, see: thelighthousemission.org  Additional donations gratefully accepted.
