By this point, we all know that washing hands is one of the easiest ways to stay healthy - but why settle for harsh, mass-produced bars? How about learning to make natural, hand-crafted soap outside at a local, sustainable farm? Clean and green, for sure!

Join us at Dharma's Garden in North Boulder or Three Leaf Farm in Lafayette, each a perfect, idyllic setting to learn a new, creative yet practical skill.

We'll discuss the value of bypassing commercial “soaps” - actually detergents that can wreak havoc on both the environment and your system beyond dry skin. Thoughtfully crafting your own soap with a few simple, skin supportive ingredients is both a creative and environmentally savvy alternative. As an experienced, award-winning soap artisan, I'll show you some tips that elevate beginner soap design into something special.

In this hands-on workshop, you'll learn the basics of making classic, hand-poured, cold-process soap. We'll review safety tips, create a beginners' supply list, and get creative with customization techniques. You'll leave inspired with detailed notes, simple recipes, a resource list, handcrafted soap, and (quite possible) a happy obsession with a new creative pursuit. :)

NOTE: 
Because we work with basic chemistry (combining fats/oils with lye), this class is for adults (16+ years) - not recommended for younger children. 
You're welcome to do this class with an older teen, but please note that the fee is per participant.

*COVID-19 cancellation policy:
Registered, but feeling sick before class (or just found out you were exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID)? For everyone's safety, PLEASE do NOT attend class!

Both Dharma's Garden and Three Leaf Farm will refund payment or award you a credit for another class. Please contact Dharma's Garden @ (720) 893-2223 or Three Leaf Farms @ 720-334-4724 for details.
