Explore the art and science of making handcrafted soap from scratch with Ann Staudt of Siberian Soap Co.! 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. This workshop is very hands-on, with each participant making and taking home 1 pound (4-5 full-size bars) of their own custom batch of herbal handcrafted soap. Long sleeves, long pants, and closed-toe shoes are required of all participants. Please bring an old towel or blanket to insulate your finished soap. Open to age 16+; younger students must have advance permission from the instructor. Pre -registration and payment of $40.00 are required to secure limited spots by February 23 before 4:00 p.m. Register by calling the Conservation Center at 641-752-5490,, or texting only 641-758-9777.
