    I was able to make a candle using the scents that I like from the selections available, which were plentiful. I was also able to get feedback and suggestions from the teacher about scent ratios and the curing process.

    The class was very informative. I was hesitant to make any soap because lye seemed sort of scary to use unless I was in a science lab. There were careful instructions for safety but it was much easier than I thought it would be. I might try to make some soap at home as gifts!

I love how casual she makes it, while still being a great teacher and facilitator. I had a bunch of questions, and she was totally patient with me. She was super helpful and attentive throughout the whole process too. I came home with a ton of beautiful, creamy lotion, and everything I need to know to make my own at home!

    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.

Lots of scents there on hand to choice from, so everyone can take home their own unique product. Grab a bunch of friends and go take the glass. Your lotion is good to use as soon as it is made.

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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!
