ONLINE ONLY: Take-and-Make Craft - Soapmaking

Saturday, November 27, 2021, 9:00 PM - 9:30 PM

Registration is required to receive a program kit, which will be available for scheduled pick-up at your preferred library prior to the event. Supplies are limited.

Explore the melt & pour soap-making process.

Beginners wanted! Learn a new skill and have a bit of fun at this introductory workshop led by Community Librarian, Roxanne M. Renteria. In this hands-on workshop, DIY enthusiasts will explore an accelerated soap making technique called "melt & pour" using a microwave and various ingredients. The program will include a brief overview of the history of soap making, various soap making methods, and library resources to encourage future exploration.

No skill required. Microwave and microwave safe liquid pouring container required (a Pyrex measuring cup, for example).

Community Librarian Roxanne M. Renteria has worked for Deschutes Public Library since 2014, and serves the La Pine Library area. As the child of two librarians, she grew up in her local public library - sneakily taking candy from the reference desk drawer, and ensuring VHS tapes were rewound for the next customer. Roxanne began volunteering in her teens, and has worked a variety of jobs in academic and public libraries across a handful of states. She wears many hats as a rural librarian, but her favorite duties are story time, outreach and program planning. She spends her free time tackling new DIY projects.
