As y’all know, I love me some soapmaker gatherings – enough to even start my own in Kansas City called Central Soapers Workshop. It’s a ton of hard work to host an event of this caliber, but it pays off when you get to see all those smiling faces in person who learn oh-so-much.
So, if Kansas City isn’t local to you to join us in March, maybe Tennessee is your ticket!
And hey, guess what – I might have your ticket. 😉 Read on, superstar!
What’s the Tennessee Soap & Candle Social?
The Tennessee Soap and Candle Social is an annual gathering of soapmakers and candlemakers from Tennessee and the Southeast region.
As an informal casual group, they gather to socialize, learn from each other, and demonstrate their craft.
Their annual meeting is being held as a two-day affair on February 28th & March 1st in Paris Landing State Park in Buchanan, TN.
What can you expect from the TN Soap & Candle Social?
When you come, you can look forward to informative workshops, dazzling demos, and high-spirited conversation with some of the most interesting artisans around.
On the schedule this year, you’ll find the ever fabulous (and one of my absolute favorite speakers!) Donna Maria of Indie Business Network, as well as Michelle Rhoades, Kayla Fioravanti, Marge Clark, Amanda Griffin, Kristin Schleihs & Mark Williams, Deborah Bruijn, and Benjamin Aaron.
You can also use this opportunity to clear out the workshop, and bring some of your excess supplies to sell off at the Garage Sale.
Or do the opposite, and snag some new goodies by hitting up some of the amazing vendors like Rustic Escentuals, Soap Equipment, Cumberland Acoustic (I bought my first soap cutter from these fine folks!), and Exotic Butters & Oils.
This sounds amazinnngggg, how do I register?
Registration for the TN Soap & Candle Social is open, and for a two day event, is a total steal for the caliber of speakers and experiences you’ll have.
