Soap Workshops

Lakeside Acres Workshops

Lakeside Acres has taught close to 200 people the art of making their own all natural soap with many returning participants.

We are professional soap makers and we take pride and care in the products and services we provide our clients.

Our workshops have proven to be events loved by people of all ages and have provided great opportunities for participants to not only learn, but to make new social connections and form new friendships.

In addition to bringing home your own batch of self-made soap products, Lakeside Acres’ supplies and products are available to purchase at each event!
