Lye Soap Making

  • The Foxfire Museum & Heritage Center 98 Foxfire Lane Mountain City, GA 30562 USA (map)

Come join Miss Jenny and her family as you spend an honest day making old-fashioned Lye soap. Old-fashioned in the sense that you can pronounce the ingredients and understand the process. We will make the one and only “Lye soap”, a product that has stood the test of time. Lye soap does not need scent or colors to make it what it is. This all-day class will cover basic “hot process” soap making skills. We will render fresh hog lard down into cracklings and grease. The cracklings will be used for snacking and the grease for our soap. We will cook a large cauldron full of lye soap. Upon finishing, the soap will be poured into special molds for each person to take home. Everyone will leave with soap, a new-found knowledge, and hopefully a love for old-fashioned Lye soap.

All tools and materials will be supplied in the class. Be sure to pack your lunch!
