Hand & Foot Scrubs

6:30pm - 7:30pm

Is your skin feeling the burn from the winter cold?  Join us to make your own scrubs with all natural ingredients to leave your skin soft, smooth and silky.

During this hands-on workshop you will create two different scrubs, a hand scrub and a foot scrub. We will be using 100% natural ingredients such as luxurious salts, coffee grounds, oils and essential oils. These scrubs not only buff away dead skin cells but they will also hydrate and nourish the skin. They are a 2 in 1 product: exfoliant and moisturiser. No preservatives will be added to the final product.  This workshop is perfect for beginners and/or anyone wanting to make exfoliants. At the end of the session you will go home with two 2+ ounce jars of scrubs and all the information needed to keep making more.  Registration is required and there is a 25 participants maximum.  

Presented by Gariné Arakelian

An evening with Isaac Fitzgerald, author of Dirtbag, Massachusetts

7:00pm - 8:00pm

Join us for a very special author event!  Isaac Fitzgerald has lived many lives. He's been an altar boy, a bartender, a fat kid, a smuggler, a biker, a prince of New England. But before all that, he was a bomb that exploded his parents' lives-or so he was told. In Dirtbag, Massachusetts, Fitzgerald, with warmth and humor, recounts his ongoing search for forgiveness, a more far-reaching vision of masculinity, and a more expansive definition of family and self. 

Fitzgerald appears frequently on The Today Show and is also the author of the bestselling children’s book How to Be a Pirate as well as the co-author of Pen & Ink: Tattoos and the Stories Behind Them and Knives & Ink: Chefs and the Stories Behind Their Tattoos. His writing has appeared in The New York TimesThe AtlanticEsquireThe GuardianThe Best American Nonrequired Reading, and numerous other publications. He is Boston born, raised in Athol, and currently lives in Brooklyn, N.Y.

The discussion will be moderated by Daniel Ford, host of The Writer's Bone Podcast.
