DIY Felted Soap Workshop | Beginner Friendly
Instructor: Alan Pippy | Includes: 1.5 hour of instruction and supplies

Age Group: Adult

Price: $50 + tax

During this fun wet felting workshop, participants will learn to how to make 2 of their very own felted bars of soap to take home and enjoy! The wool helps to extend the lifespan of the bar of soap, and shrinks with it as it's being used. It also acts as a gentle wash cloth to help exfoliate your skin.

We will be using pure goats milk soap bars, which are hypoallergenic, chemical free and build a luxurious lather for scrubbing! Through guided step by step instruction, you will learn the unique art of wet felting to create the exfoliation cover around the bars of soap. Please note: this is not a soap making class.

Why do we love felted soap?

🧼 Felting is an ancient craft

🧼 The felt shrinks with the soap

🧼 The felt prolongs the use of the bar of soap

🧼 The felt is exfoliating and has antimicrobial properties

🧼 The soap lathers well and you don’t use as much soap

🧼 The felt makes gripping the soap much easier

🧼 The wool dries out well between uses
