Safety protection (goggles, nitrile gloves, and basic disposable mask) will also be provided for you. If you would prefer to purchase your own, you are more than welcome to do so.

In compliance to our COVID precautions, we ask that you wear your mask while in close proximity to others. We will have light food and beverages available, so of course remove your mask for that purpose. We ask that you attend the event if you are feeling well. If you are not, please contact us no later than 24 hours before the event. There will be no refunds for this event.

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!
