One of the great things about the Mother Earth News Fair is all that it offers a wide variety of classes. The classes cover everything from how to make foods such as breads, cheeses and sausage, to composting techniques and even herbal soapmaking. Today on The Herb Companion stage, Katherine from Bramble Berry and Otion gave a presentation/demonstration titled Cold Process Soapmaking 101. I met up with her after her presentation and chit chatted with her about soapmaking and how it's not as intimidating as it seems.
