June, July, and August, Oh My!
We're feeling the heat at Frigg's! As we draw closer and closer toward summer, we're planning all kinds of awesomeness, and thought it worth a blog post to update. We'll give you the low-down on some of the fun stuff we have scheduled for the upcoming weeks, and a few things that are still in the works. We're working hard to get this info into our website calendar, Facebook page, and online shop, but here's the scoop in its most basic form!
Also, we'd love to schedule a private party or event with you! These have been a great success and tons of fun! We can offer group events for you and your friends to make any of the following (or a combination): candles, cheese, kombucha, soap, bath bombs, lip balms, lotions, balms, deodorant, canning, pickles, natural cleaning supplies, nail polish, and fermented veggies. We typically rent out the entire space for private parties, and pricing varies depending on time of day, number of people, and selected project. Get in touch and we'll sort it out! Here is a little bit more information about our events and you can see specifics on our popular birthday packages here.
Here's a list of some of the events we have planned, with more in the works! Links coming soon for those who lack them. :)

A quick note on our online calendar: We are working on getting everything posted! We are in the incredibly fortunate situation of having high demand, so sometimes there is a lag between booking something and getting it on the calendar. We have had a number of people ask about how easy it might be to drop in and do an activity, and we're looking into ways of working that into the online calendar. Because there's always something new cropping up from one week to the next (in a good way!), it's sometimes hard to say FOR SURE when drop-in activities will be available. For example, we will be having mini-camps, parties, and grown-up workshops, as well as non-Frigg's groups in the shop/studio throughout the coming months, and saying, "Sure! Come in any time and make something!" doesn't seem like a good plan. We are considering the possibility of scheduling drop-in times, in which case: yes, drop in then! We'd love to see you! So look for scheduled drop-in hours in the coming weeks!
