 Bubble, Bubble, Toil & Trouble: Soapmaking Workshop Saturday, August 27, 2011 9:00am – 1:00pm Registration Fee: $20/person Creating soap is not a difficult process – no more challenging than following a recipe for pastry and turning into a pie. Come join us in learning the art of making soap with the cold-process method. Participants will receive a booklet with soap recipes, several bars of home-made soap, and the knowledge of how to become squeaky clean! The Registration fee of $20 covers the cost of materials. Please bring protective clothing, as some materials used are caustic and can burn. Class size is limited; call (870) 878-6765 or email powhatan@arkansas.com to reserve your space today.
