Super WOOL Party II

Hosted by Finger Lakes Art & Inspiration Retreat (FLAIR)

Who needs football when we have felted wool? Bring your super bowl snacks and woolly bits and we'll go to town! All humans are welcome--men, kids, friends--the more the merrier. Please bring 2-3 felted wool sweaters, and $5-10 to cover the space rental cost. Other helpful things are good scissors, embroidery floss, and tapestry needles. We'll have lots to work with, though, so don't let lack of equipment keep you from getting wild & woolly!!

Soapmaking Workshop for Home and Gifting

Soapmaking Workshop for Home and Gifting


Learn how to make 100% natural bar soap using an all vegetable base and the cold-process method. You'll have fun creating your own special blend, using essential oils, herbs, oatmeal, etc. Participants will leave with 1 pound of their own custom-crafted soap (6-10 bars), a soapmaking mold, and an instruction booklet.

What better way to save money AND create practical, beautiful gifts than by making your own soap! You'll also learn simple yet lovely packaging ideas for holiday gift-giving.

The instructor, Sharon Kaplan, has been teaching soapmaking classes and making her own soap for over 20 years. In addition to soapmaking, Sharon loves to garden, cook, and read. She once owned a handmade papermaking business, creating plantable wedding favors and invitations. For the past 11 years, she has worked as the Director of Volunteers at the Cancer Resource Center in Ithaca.

*Adults and responsible teens only please, as we will be using lye in this class. One ticket per person.*
