Gingerbread Spa Workshop
Saturday, November 14, 9 – 11:30 am
Bring on the holiday season! All of these projects will carry the comforting aroma of toasty gingerbread, fresh from the oven. The first project will be a gingerbread-scented glycerin soap shaped in the classic gingerbread man shape. A spicy solid lotion bar containing skin-loving butters and oils will keep dry skin at bay during the cold, winter months. And sparkly gingerbread-scented nail polish can dress your hands at all of your holiday parties. All projects will be gift-giving ready, complete with holiday packaging. Ages 10+. Registration deadline: November 6. Min. 10. Max. 20. Fee: $25/public; $19/Conservatory member or volunteer. To register, call (260) 427-6000.
