We are looking forward to welcoming community member, Tanya Kranc to the Spoon, bringing her experience and knowledge of making natural soap from scratch. At this unique, hands-on workshop we will get familiar with the ingredients and the process of how to make soap, and each participant will get to take home 10-12 bars each! We will have peppermint and lavender essential oils available, and participants are welcome to bring their natural essential oils from home to make their unique blend if wanted.

This workshop has limited space, costs $40, and registration is required here.
