6-9 pm - 711 Amsterdam Ave./Private Teaching Studio at Little Shop of Crafts, New York, NY

This is a 3-hour, hands-on, immersive soapmaking workshop offered by 20-year soapmaster, Marla Bosworth. In this class students will learn how to use elements from the plant kingdom to create organic, natural soaps from scratch using the cold process method. 

What in nature inspires you? What can you share through a beautifully designed botancial soap to inspire others? It might be locally grown produce or honey from the farmer's market, wildcrafted elements from a nature hike or water from a river or stream. This is just a sampling from where we can source our inspiration. Come learn how to weave sacred energy from these places, the physical elements (water, fire, earth and air), and the wisdom of nature into gorgeous bars of soap to give as gifts or to sell.
