ABOUT THIS EVENT

Education

Event Overview

An introduction to the cold process method of soap making, taught by people who've been doing it professionally for over a decade. Commercially made soaps are full of detergents and chemicals that strip skin of its natural moisture. Our soaps only contain all-natural ingredients, making them safe for even the most delicate skin.

The thought of making soap often intimidates most people (think Fight Club), but we teach it in a way that makes it fun and understandable for almost everyone. If you can follow basic cooking instructions, you can make handmade soap. In this class, the student will learn a brief history of the origins of soap, the chemical process of how the ingredients turn into soap, where the materials can be obtained when making soap at home, a run-down of the tools and equipment used, then boom-- we're going to put all that information together and make a batch ourselves! All materials are provided and each student will go home with a pound of their own handmade soap (a $30 value)! Please keep in mind that handmade soap takes about 4-6 weeks curing time before it is usable, so please plan accordingly if you are making your soap as a gift. Class time runs about an hour and a half.

*Parking is located across the street in the bank parking lot.

MORE ABOUT YOUR HOST

Kate Bethel started off making soap as a hobby back in 2005. By 2007, she had opened a small brick and mortar shop called Maven in downtown Maplewood, making all of her creations in the back of the store. Today, Maven sells handmade soaps both retail and wholesale all over the country.

    Kate is not only an amazing entrepreneur but also a fantastic teacher. We learned about the history of soap and different processes for soap making. Kate did a great job of highlighting differentiation in process during each step and is incredibly knowledgeable about her craft. I would highly recommend this class. Also consider attending with friends. We did the class with a group of four and two other people who signed up individually and it was a great time. Thank you Kate and Maven!

    Really fun to see and participate in how soap is made. I enjoyed both the hands-on and brief lecture portion. The class only ran about an hour as opposed to an hour and a half, which might be good news for some folks on a work night.

    Great set up - easy to follow - lots of fun options for scents and textures. Easy to follow instructions - very safe and clean environment to work in. Everything laid out and ready to go, yet everyone left with their own 1 lb (about 6 bars) of soap that was different from everyone else.

    I had a great time at this class. Loved that it was a small group, we all got to know one another. The instructors made the class very easy to follow along and answered all the questions we had along the way. After friends saw the soap I walked away with from the class , I have 4 other people that want to go with me when I go again.

(Also depends how thick you cut it). The class also lets out a little early and you can have a private shopping experience. Highly recommend.

    This was such a fun date night for my husband and I within walking distance from our home. We love homemade soap and it was a great experience getting to make our own. The process was fun and the instructor made it easy and interactive. We were able to customize our scents and add salt for an exfoliation effect. We were able to take home enough for 8-9 bars each and gave some to family as gifts!

    It was a neat experience. Very bland and reading off paper and make sure you bring a drink and eat something before as this is right during dinner. Teacher and helper seemed a bit stressed and it showed. No music and six chairs. I feel like this could have been done in 20 minutes and not an hour. Not worth the price point, I'd say $35 per person tops. Great concept just needs honest and more thought out and put together. Maybe refreshments and some background music or something. I legit sang to make it more interesting. Overall 3/5.

    Very glad that I took this class. When I saw all of the paraphernalia and heard of the steps we were about to take, it felt a bit overwhelming, but directions were clear and teacher and assistant were helpful and I conquered a lovely block of soap. Very interesting. I think it is great when artisans share their craft.
