What started 20 years ago while exploring the social history and material culture of the 18th century and Colonial America; Barbara, the owner of Bonnie Brae Soaps discovered the nearly lost art of soapmaking. From rendering her own Tallow and ‘boiling’ soap over an open fire as a historical reenactor, she advanced to the more delicate art of Cold Process soapmaking. Today she creates Vegan soaps with natural colorants and essential oils as well as fanciful soaps with vibrant scents, colors and flair. By using locally sourced ingredients whenever possible and the finest organic, sustainable oils and butters you can be assured of an environmentally conscious product. Barbara still does historical demonstrations for State and National Parks and offers private and group classes in Soap Making in New York and Texas.
Classes are available at her private studio in Upstate New York from April-September.
From October to March, she offers classes in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas.
