Soap n’ Sip with Judith @ Yisrael Family Urban Farm
Sep 28 @ 11:00 am – 2:00 pm

Round up the crew and join us for an early afternoon of soaping, sipping, and socializing! This Beginners cold-process Soapmaking class is a perfect space to bring the in-laws, have a date, gather with your girlfriends, visiting relatives, or to just lather up your own creativity! Soapmaking is a delicate art that has been practiced by homesteaders for many years. For this class we will be recapturing the craft and taping into the homesteading spirit. 


In this beginners class, local soap artisan, Judith Yisrael, will provide a thorough lesson for anyone who inspires to be a soap crafter! Making natural, personal-care products is a science, so it is very important that you understand why you are doing something, not just how to do something. In addition to Judith's class instruction, participants will also:



  • Learn the history of Soapmaking

  • Understand safey procedures (demystifying the lye! NaOH)

  • Receive soapmaking recipes and instruction booklet

  • List of materials and ingredients needed (best places to purchase them!)

  • Take home 2 pounds of your very own homemade soap (approx 8 - 10 bars)

  • Enjoy Mimosas (must be 21+ for sips) and snacks. Non-alcoholic beverages will also be available.


No experience is necessary! 


*Class is only open to 18 and over due to use of caustic chemicals.


*Limited scholarships are available. Priority will be given to people of underserved communities and Oak Park residents. Apply here!
