Donna Bryant Winston Sharing the Secrets of Soapmaking

Sharing the Secrets
of Soapmaking

Saturday, October 17, 2015, 12-4pm
at Radiance, in downtown Lancaster, PA

This class is offered to those who want to experience the fine art of making herbal and natural vegetable-based soaps.

Join us in the delightfully fun, hands-on, workshop as we discuss the history of soap and go through every step of the soap-making process, sharing tips and techniques along the way.  Our goal is that participants will leave feeling confident about making soap on their own at home.  You will learn how to incorporate the healing power of herbs, essential oils, and natural ingredients into your luxurious handmade soaps.  This class will make a goat’s milk soap.

Discussion will include troubleshooting and diagnosing signs of trouble in the soap pot.  Handouts, recipes, and samples included!

Cost for this class is $40 in advance, $45 on the day of the class.

We will meet in the classroom at Radiance.  To register call 717-290-1517, or stop by the shop at 9 W Grant St, in downtown Lancaster, right across the cobblestones from Central Market.
