Dress comfortably, in casual work clothing, and wear long sleeves or bring a jacket to protect your arms. You will leave with a box loaf of soap that yields approximately 10+ regular bars of soap. It will take at least 4 - 6 weeks for the soap to cure before use. Class times start promptly. Please arrive at least 10 minutes before class time to get settled. We look forward to seeing you soon!
