I had a great time at your last class!

I'm already slowly gathering all my soap making tools/supplies to get started on a new batch.

Do you ever hold classes that are dedicated to the chemistry of soapmaking?   I'm studying the fatty acids chart, using sap values to figure out my lye, humectants,  surfectants (for my other products)....but I want to know it all lol.

I want to know why and how the chain links itself in the order that it does, why an additive that is moisturizing in one capacity is drying in soap long message! 


What would you charge for a private class of two?

Looking forward to our class in March. 

Called to book a class of 4 march 20th

Hello  I would LOVE to learn how to make soap but I have hard to come to any class but surprise that you provide private class because I would 

love to have private class..  I want to know if you have experince with deaf before and I am interested and where is the location?



Are there any spots left in the Feb 28 class?

Hi there! Do you ever do cp workshops on weekends? I work fulltime during the week is all.
