Join Pop Shop America and the Houston Public Libraries for a fun Maker Workshop and Summer Activity! At this craft class we’ll make men’s salve and aftershave. But don’t you worry ladies – this cooling gel will feel great on your skin too! All kids will get to create a salve which is a thick and dense moisturizing lotion and an aftershave. You will get to scent it with tons of different essential oils to choose from and you’ll get to package it to make it look super special. And then you get to keep it! So fun! RSVP at Smith Library to attend this workshop.

Free to Attend – RSVP to Smith Library Required

Handmade Men’s Salve and Aftershave Workshop takes place:

Wednesday June 29th 2-4pm

at Smith Library

3624 Scott St. Houston 77004

This is a 2 hour completely free craft workshop hosted by the Houston Public Libraries Summer Reading Program. The Summer Reading Program is the coolest way to find new awesome books during the summer. School’s out which gives us extra time for our favorite activity – reading! These art classes and craft workshops are a fun way to integrate some of our favorite books and try out new experiments and projects that we would never get to try in school!

We’ll bring all the supplies, knowledge, and everything you need to complete this workshop. Each kid will get to make their own salve and aftershave and keep the results. We’ll have so many essential oils to scent our products and we’ll have a lot of fun figuring out what scents we like and what scents we don’t! We’ll walk you through every step of making the salve and aftershave so you can understand how to make more of these products in the future.

This workshop is best for kids 8 and up because dripping essential oils requires some patience and dexterity. Got kids that are under 10? No problem – we would love to have them there! But please be sure that you are prepared to lend a helping hand to your kid if they need it.

Pop Shop America has been teaching art classes and craft workshops at the Houston Public Libraries for over 3 years! We love bringing awesome activities to a community that makes education fun. Got questions about our workshops? We’re glad to help! To RSVP, please contact the Library Branch or please contact us anytime here.
