Learn about turquoise and how to trace specimens back to their mines and tell natural turquoise from faux turquoise. Then, create turquoise-inspired soap.


This "Inspired by Nature" is brought you by your State Gem, Turquoise!  Learn all about this iconic Southwest stone and how you can trace specimens back to their mines and how you can tell natural turquoise from fake turquoise.


Then, let’s get our craft on and create turquoise inspired soap!  You will come away from this workshop with a full pound of homemade, nature inspired soap!  This is a perfect way to get ready for the holidays as each pound of soap will make up to 6 bars of soap.
