Why look, it’s a new hobby.

In my last post, it should be pretty obvious that one of these days, I’m going to have a new hobby.  Well, it may not be the only one.

I went to a soap-making class today.

The makings for soap

 

The workshop was held at The New Harmony Soap Company.  We got a quick history on soap-making and a rundown of the process, then we went into the basement and commenced the saponification.  At the end, we had a two-pound batch of sweet-smelling soap.  Mine is a lavender/vanilla/patchouli blend.

It’s the perfect mix of chemistry and creativity.   I love it.

A loom in January, a soap class in February – wonder what will March bring?
