Library Duck Soap Making!

4:30pm

 

Each participant will make their own soapy creation using glycerin based soap and adding colors, glitter and scents. There is no lye exposure since the process does not involve traditional soap making techniques. Once the concoction has cooled slightly, we will add cosmetic grade glitter, colors, essential oil (optional), embed the rubber shark bath toys, and decorate the tops with white soap curls. At the end of the workshop each participant will take their handmade creation home, it can be unmolded the following day and used right away.

Since the soap can get hot, a parent or guardian must be present for children under the age of 10 to lend a helping hand.

Space is limited, please click below to register.

Candle Making for Adults

6:30pm - 7:30pm

Join us for an evening of candle making. You’ll be surprised at how much you don’t know about candles! This workshop is an introduction to warming fall fragrances based candle making. We will discuss types of candles and waxes, wick and container sizes, the difference between scents and fragrances and directions on how to burn a candle. Each participant will make one container candle using soy wax and can choose from a variety of Autumn inspired fragrance oils and dried botanicals such as lavender and calendula petals (optional). Once the concoction has cooled undisturbed for about one hour, the participants will take their candle home and may burn it after a seven to fourteen day curing period.   Please register.  Presenter: Gariné Arakelian.
