Mr Jim Ryan will demonstrate the art of using honey and beeswax in making fabulous soap, hand balm and lip balm. This is a great way to see how to make these beautiful items and will guide you in creating them yourself. The workshop will be on at the Tribes Clubhouse in Kilcornan. You do not need to bring any equipment. On the day please bring a packed lunch or snack you may require as the shops is a good bit away from the club’s lecture hall.
The Workshop runs from 10:30 – 16:00 on Sat 22 April
