    If you are interested in learning  the basics of relief printmaking, this beginner-friendly class is the perfect time to do it. Students will learn to design prints, carve them, and print them. One color prints will be the main focus but multi-color prints are a possibility for those who are interested. We will primarily be working with linoleum blocks and potentially wood. Printing is possible on both paper and fabric. Students are encouraged to bring an 18x24 pad of drawing paper, a sharpie, a sketchbook, and their creativity.

    f you've ever wanted to learn how to make soap, then this is the class for you! You will learn to make goats milk soap using the cold process method. At the end of the class you will be taking about two pounds of soap home with you. We will talk about using essential oils and natural colorants in your soap to keep it as pure and natural as possible. The soap will be molded into milk carton, which will be provided. If you would like to use a decorative mold, please bring only silicone molds, since plastic molds do not work well with the cold process soap. Silicone molds may be found in the cake decorating isle at local craft stores or online. You will be working with lye and will learn how to handle it properly. Please wear long sleeves, pants and closed toed shoes. Gloves and goggles will be provided, as well as all the ingredients for the soap. If you wish to use essential oils, please bring only 100% pure oils from a reputable company. This class will be fun, informative and easy to do!
