Felted Soap Workshop & Fundraiser 

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 6:00—7:30 PM

 

felted-soap-1

COST IS $25 PER PERSON

To secure your spot:  Payment is due prior to the event in cash or check and may be mailed to or dropped off at the Library, and you must register online by the deadline of Feb. 16 at:  newburylibrary.org/events.   Thank you for helping us to fund programs!

Pauline Fabiano, our Library Associate, will teach us how to make colorful wool felted soap bars (soap and washcloth all in one).  Soap will be provided but if you have a favorite brand, please bring two bars with you.

Each no-slip bar gently exfoliates, is unique and environmentally friendly. When completely used, it is a small wool “scrub pad” to use or compost.  Another idea is to cut in bits and sprinkle outside for the birds to use.
