New site, new season

We are thrilled to have our new website up and running! One of the difficulties was that we were having a hard time editing and updating events with the old format. The popularity of our events, and the need to be able to repeat them, prompted a swift website change. So... ta-da! This current rendition was born.

A few updates around these parts:

- The Summer Kid Makers Mini-Camp series will have its last rendition on Wednesday, August 22. From that point forward, our 3-hr drop-in camps will morph into a 5-hr drop-in camp available on school closure days and school breaks. Same concept, longer day, and only slightly higher price ($45). We anticipate these will sell out so book your Mini-Camp asap if you are a planner-type!

- We've had a fair number of people ask about private parties. We list our standard packages with prices on our website, but we're always happy to arrange for special events for smaller groups, depending on availability! If you have a group of people you'd like to get together for a fun evening making cheese, or soap, or whatever you please, get in touch and we'll sort it out. It would make for an awesome Ladies' Night!

- We are working on putting together our calendar of fall and winter festivities. Think spooky Halloween candles and homemade gifts! What is something you'd like to be able to give your people this season? Soapmaking is a great skill to learn because homemade soap makes a fantastic present. But don't forget: you need to let your soap cure for a minimum of four weeks before it can be used, so you'll need to start learning your skillz in October and November!

- We're also gearing up for a big event on Small Business Saturday! Cannot wait to share the details, but for now, we'll leave it mysterious... :)
