Guests will create their own lotions, bath bombs, and lip balms in a two-hour hands-on workshop! We will start off with a simple overview of each project. Then, it's your turn! With an instruction card and ongoing guidance, you will see how easy it is to make your own bath and beauty products at home. We provide all equipment and supplies; you get to customize your creations to your liking. We have an array of scents and colors for you to select for each project, as well as a variety of molds and containers. When you have finished, you will be able to take everything home with you to enjoy. Typically, attendees leave with: - 3-5 bath bombs - 3-5 lip balms - 1-2 jars of lotion (depends on containers) Please note: variations in quantity is due to size of containers used, not the overall amount of product. It is our goal to reduce waste as much as possible in our workshops, and we LOVE when guests bring their own lotion jars! Our open, light studio can comfortably accommodate 15 people, most events are capped at 8.
I am the owner of Make + Take Studio (aka Frigg's Mercantile), a shop & maker space in North Portland. I have been making my own soaps, lotions, balms and other DIY goodies for nearly a decade. My goal is to make everyone comfortable crafting it up on their own by the time they leave the studio. We regularly host DIY camps and birthday parties for kids (ages 7+) as well as group events for grown-ups (bachelorette parties, baby showers, team-building, you name it!).
Outside food permitted Can arrange for food options, if desired
Supplies and packaging We supply all ingredients, molds, bath bomb presses, and containers needed (lip balm tubes, etc).
Workshops are hosted in our new studio, in the "spine" of the HUB building behind the toy store. Please allow adequate time to find parking, if needed. Our space has 20ft high ceilings, huge windows, and great coffee just steps away! :)
- We welcome children in the studio, but ask that they be 7+ years old if participating in a workshop. - Please mention any allergies that may be of concern when making body products
