(note: pictured soap is not the actual soap we will be making)
Join us at the farm store for a soap making class using our very own pastured pork fat, rendered into lard. The class will be led by Laiken Arslanian, a seasoned soap maker. Each person will receive instruction and a bar of soap. It is a holiday scent, using the hot process with a cinnamon, clove, anise scent. This will not be a hands on class, but rather a demonstration.
Main items coverered include:
How to render fat, how to handle and work with lye, basic processes (hot or cold) for any form of soap, focus on hot process soap, specifically, individualize/develop your own soap recipe, pouring and cutting.
*This class is for anyone ages 12 and up (due to the nature of lye), younger indivuduals should be accompanied by an adult.
