During this workshop, we will demonstrate with easy steps, how to wrap and felt a bar of soap using colorful wool. Your child will decorate and personalize her/his felted soap while learning the fundamentals of felting and its history.
Felted soap kits will be available for purchase at the workshop. That way your child can keep practicing the technique they learned at home and create unique handmade gifts.
The soaps we will be using are made locally, are made with all natural ingredients and are scented with essential oils. I will provide various scents to choose from.
