My soap classes are very small, only four students at a time. It's designed to provide plenty of personal attention, and ensure that you're making soap properly and safely. The class moves along slowly, making sure you understand each step as we go along.
Together we'll explore everything you need to know about the cold-process (traditional) method of soapmaking. Everything we discuss is written down in a folder for you to take home. It includes:
-Basic Supplies & Recommended Suppliers for Soapmaking
-Sodium Hydroxide/Lye Safety
-How to formulate a recipe using SoapCalc (a FREE online lye calculator)
-History of Soapmaking- What is Soap?
-(2) Starter Recipes
-Tips on Unmolding, Cutting, & Curing
-Troubleshooting, tricky fragrances & more!
You'll also be taking home about two pounds of your own soap, (6-8 bars) and the confidence to try out your new skill at home.
I've been making soap since 2011 and spent heaps of time and money, learning how. It's lots of trial and error, but so much fun!
I'll save you some trial & error, because I love sharing everything I've learned with you. I'll give you my best advice and help you avoid some really common mistakes new soapers make (like buying all the things)
Okay, I'm in! What's next?:

I can’t recommend this class enough. To learn this primitive craft by such a knowledgeable person like Valerie is so valuable. I appreciate what she and other soap makers do all the more.
Great people to spend the day with in a clean, organized environment to learn. Valerie has years of experience, expertise in this field that she so graciously shares. A true Master of her craft. Very inspiring, providing so much knowledge and information to safely create soaps for yourself if you choose. Thank you so much Valerie. 😊
This is the first review I have ever written; but I had so much fun with Valerie, I wanted to share my experience. Being a craft junkie, I've always wanted to learn to make soap, but wanted to do it in person, not on line or through books. I tried to find a class on Long Island, but it was during the Pandemic and Val, rightfully so, was not holding classes. I asked to be contacted when classes resumed and about a month or so ago, Val reached out. My crafting buddy and I took the class together. It was great. Val was so friendly; she made us feel at home immediately. She answered all our questions, provided advice, guidance and tricks of the trade. Taking her class is like hanging out with a well-informed best friend. Her studio is amazing and her products are divine. We had a blast and look forward to making soap on our own. For anyone who enjoys crafting and wants to learn to make soap, Val's class is a must.
I have always been fascinated with making homemade products. I love cooking and sewing and crafting. I was a little afraid of soap making since it can be dangerous because you are using lye which can be very toxic. But Valerie's class was so easy going and relaxed that all those fears were gone the minute she started talking to me. She is very informative and easy to talk to and also a great teacher and gave a personal touch to her class. I can't wait to share my beautiful soap with friends and family. I will definitely will recommend her class. Thanks again Valerie :-)
Had a wonderful experience learning how to make hand made soap. Valerie is an absolute wonderful teacher! She shares so much soap making information. She is welcoming and makes you feel at ease. She shares so much soap making information. You not only leave with the beautiful soap you created, but also a folder of soap making information.
What a great class gives you a healthy respect for the craft, Valerie is a very knowledgeable and giving teacher enjoyed myself would do class again
