   1:00 PM  -  2:00 PM Whale of a Tale Soap Making Workshop  
    Contact: Children's Library   499-9480 x203   
   

This free workshop is designed for children ages 5 and up. Since the soap can get hot, an adult must be present for children under the age of 10 to lend a helping hand. 

Space is limited and registration is required by 4/18. Please call the Children's Department at  413-499-9480 x203.

Each participant will make their own creation using glycerin based soap and adding colors, glitter and scents. The process does not involve traditional soap making techniques, so there is no lye exposure. Once the concoction has cooled slightly, we will add cosmetic grade glitter, colors, essential oil (optional), embed the rubber toy whales and decorate the tops with white soap curls, to make it look like waves. At the end of the workshop each participant will take their handmade soap home, it can be unmolded the following day and used right away. Soap is approximately 4 oz. with a 2” rubber whale and measurements of 2.75” x 2.75”.

Children under age 10 must be accompanied by an adult, age 18 or older, at all times.
