Saturday, Jan. 8 at 10 a.m. — WOODSTOCK — Try out new skills, embrace your creativity, and have some good, clean fun while learning how to make your own felted soap! The Billings Backyard Series presents felted soapmaking with fiber artist Tiana St. James on Saturday, Jan. 8 from 10–11:30 a.m.
Using locally made soaps and wool from Billings Farm & Museum’s own sheep, instructor Tiana St. James will walk participants through the processes of both wet felting and needle felting to make a charming and sustainable product. Felted soap lasts longer and helps exfoliate as it cleans. Felted soap makes a great gift too.
This presentation takes place at Billings Farm & Museum and is followed by a 30-minute Q&A period. The workshop costs $15/person; $10/BF&M member. Space is limited. Reserve your spot at billingsfarm.org/classes-workshops or call 802-457-2355.
Billings Backyard is a series of workshops designed to teach sustainable living skills to adult participants and is underwritten by a generous grant from the SpringRiver Private Foundation Trust. Each workshop includes hands-on demonstrations and concrete steps for incorporating these skills into everyday life.
