    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!

    Absolutely love this class! I have definitely learn a new skill that I will put to use. Kate was assume she made sure to explain what happens in each step and she make you feel stupid if you asked questions. My soap smells so good and I can't wait to use it.

    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.

    I had an amazing time! I learned something new in a great space. I cannot wait to use this soap. My kitchen smells like Hawaii.

    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.

    Introduction to Soap Making

    The class was great and very informative on the history of soap making. I was happy with the soap I made and the amount we made. My only negitave comment would be that I asked for a copy of the "recipe" but was told they didn't have one.

    Kate was an excellent teacher who made us feel safe and informed throughout the process. I had a really fun time making soap and would love to attend again in the future if she hosts an intermediate/advanced soap class!

    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.

    This was a fun class. I do wish that we would have gotten more into the swirl and fun colors of the soap that is displayed in the pictures however. Overall a good learning experience!

    We really enjoyed ourselves! It was more like an hour (not 2) maybe because there were only 3 of us in the class. I thought it was fun & informative. I am really excited to try out my soap & give it as gifts!

    Introduction to Soap Making

    I had a great time at this class! Great instruction and easy to follow along, plus you get to leave with some awesome smelling soap! I was expecing maybe 1-2 bars, but I ended up with 6! (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 class. It's something I would obviously never do on my own. The instructor was very helpful and knowledgeable, and in the end you get to take home a significant amount of soap that you made on your own. Can't wait to use it!

    This was a lot of fun! We came out with quite a bit of soap to use for Christmas gifts. I would suggest adding more fragrances and additives to the options.

    Such a fun class. The small size makes it easy to follow and ask questions. I'm really proud of the finished product, and soap is totally something I wouldn't have tried at home before.

    I had such a great time! The teacher was not only informative, but also engaging and comforting. Sometimes when you're working with unfamiliar materials it can be scary, but she made me feel comfortable enough to even make something like this in my home. I've been using homemade soaps for the past few years and I would never go back. Thank goodness I now have a pound more!

    I LOVED this class. The location was this great little store in Maplewood with the greatest daughter/mom duo. I had no experience making soap prior to this experience and had so much fun!!!

    I have always been interested in soap making but had been intimated by the equipment and needing to use lye. Taking this class was so fun and informative, and it gave me confidence to try soap making at home!

    The class was fun and informative. It was a great way to experience soap making for the first time. Highly recommend this class! Would love to see an intermediate class offered to learn other techniques like swirling or using more than one color.
