Les Mains Guidees: 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, 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.
Join Mimi DelGizzi as she teaches the techniques of soap making using lard and lye. This is one of the earliest forms of soap making dating back to 2800 BCE and is still being used today. The class will provide you with all of the necessary materials and tools for you to develop your very own soap from scratch.
You will be given pots, soap molds, and utensils. And, the best part is that everything you use is yours to take home, including your first soap! Sounds exciting?! If so, tell a friend and learn this new skill together. Vermilionville will provide some basic scents to add, but we invite you to bring your own scents, oils, or herbs to add to your project!
