Goat Milk Soap Making Workshop

Join us at kricklewood Farm for a Sunday afternoon of soapmaking!  Using the cold process method,  we combine  goat milk, a variety of fats, lye, herbs and essential oils to give a high quality all natural bar of soap.  This is a hands-on worskhop with small groups making their own batch of soap.  All workshops begin with a lesson in hand milking so bring along your rubber boots! Sessions begin at 1:00 pm and run approximately 3-4 hours.  Classes are small and cost is $35 tax included.
