September 16, 2015

Posted By: Shaunescy

Soap making is a lot of fun and natural soap makes great gifts. Soap maker Susie Hartman will guide you through the basics of natural cold process soap making. Working in groups, participants will create a vegetable oil soap with customized scents and colors that they will be able to take home with them at the end of class.

The workshop will cover:

Basic soap chemistry

Lye safety

Tools of the trade

Natural colorants and scents

This workshop will be taught by Susie Hartman from Basin, Montana. Susie loves sharing this craft with others and specializes in tallow soaps. She has even taught a primitive soap making class using only sheep tallow and wood ash. Living on a high altitude, off-grid homestead, Susie spends time with her family, raising small livestock and practicing permaculture techniques. She is passionate about developing local food systems within her community and is currently working to develop a forest garden on a city park within the community of Boulder, Montana.

This workshop will be held at Broken Ground in Bozeman.  Location and directions will be e-mailed upon registration. Space is limited so sign-up early! Please register in advance. Cost is $45 (includes materials).
