TCR Maker Series

Hands-On Artisan Workshops

At Triple Creek Ranch we are constantly seeking new ways for our guests to engage with the sights, scents, and tastes of Montana. We are excited to announce our new Maker Series, where guests can spend some time with our on-site expert in hands-on workshops, crafting unique treasures to bring a little piece of Montana home. Maker workshops are an included experience, currently available upon request and offered as regularly scheduled sessions during our winter season. Please request information from the Guest Experience team.

Soap Making

Select from olive oil, shea butter or goat’s milk to pair with your glycerin base, then add color, texture, and scent to create a soap of your own design. Organic herbs and clays such as alkanet root and spirulina will imbue your soap with rich color. Perhaps you’d like to add some oats for a textured scrub. Choose the perfect blend of organic essential oils like lavender, cedar or lemongrass to add delicate scent. Pour into molds to set, and we will package up your soaps to bring home.

Candle Making

When you light this candle back at home, we hope the flame conjures warm memories of your days in the Bitterroot Mountains and your Triple Creek Ranch experience. Select from a wide variety of organic essential oils such as orange, fir, clove and cedar to blend with your beeswax or soy candle base. Choose a wick of beeswax or wood and pour into custom glass jars. Once set, we will cap it off with its wood lid and bundle up to tuck in your suitcase.

Cheese Making

A craft older than time itself, the artisan cheese movement has filled our local farmer’s markets and groceries with delectable offerings. Discover how easy and fun it is to roll up your sleeves and pull your own mozzarella cheese! We’ve partnered with Victor, Montana based Lifeline Farm to source local, organic cow milk. Our process, which uses organic vegetable rennet, has been developed to allow you to participate in the most important hands-on steps – cutting the curds, straining, and (best of all!) kneading and stretching the mozzarella so it firms up to shape into a fresh new ball of cheesy goodness.
