Astronauts & Aliens Soap Making

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 astronaut and alien rubber duckie toys and decorate the tops with green soap curls, to make it look like grass. At the end of the workshop each participant will take their handmade soap home, it can be removed from the mold the following day and used right away. Soap is approximately 4 oz. with a 2” rubber duckie and overall measurements of 2.75” wide x 2.75” high.

Space is limited and registration is required.

Ages 5-12 years old with adult supervision.

Author Talk-A Ligurian Odyssey-with Alan R Fridkin

From the book:  "Savoring Riviera Delle Palme! What are the odds than an American couple with no Italian DNA and very basic language skills would find happiness in a slighltly faded Italian beach resort? Very good! This is not so much a Panglossian tale, but one of serendipity, savoring genuine friendship, character and craft. Over fifty years, could a small region regain its allure? Certo!"

Author Alan R Fridkin has lived in Westfield over 40 years. He is a Captain, USN Retired and a citizen of the world. He lives part time in Italy.
