Les Mains Guidées: Soap Making
Vermilionville is continuing to host monthly workshops that will allow you to learn crafts from our master artisans. On the first Saturday of every month (unless noted otherwise), we will highlight a different craft from the old Acadian, Creole and Native American ways of life. Topics will range from woodcarving to textiles to foodways and many things in between.
During this workshop, you will learn the techniques of traditional soap making using lard and lye with one of Vermilionville’s talented artisans! The cost is $55 per person, which includes your registration fee as well as lard and lye for making your first batch, a stainless steel pot, a soap mold, a mixing jar, a thermometer, wooden spoons and gloves. We will provide a few scents to add to your batch, but feel free to bring any other oils or herbs you’d like to include in your project. To register, click here.
