About Your Host

Annie has been in the San Francisco Bay Area her whole life. She began making soap over 13 years ago - teaching and sharing that with others soon after. With that interest she challenged herself to begin to learn how to make perfume several years ago. They have a studio space where they teach classes and have birthday parties for soap making, perfume, candles, lip balm, nail polish and more. They also have a bridal shower perfume making set up that we can take to ladies' days at your location.

What we'll do

Learn how to make soap from scratch The wonderful, natural soaps you see at specialty stores and farmer’s markets. We use only vegetable oils ... and lye to make beautiful, creamy lathering soaps that are actually good for your skin. We incorporate essential oils and botanicals. A really fun craft to learn that can easily be a passion. We will go over the process, get familiar with the equipment needed, learn about different oils, safety with working with lye (sodium hydroxide) and how to create a formula, working with colorant and fragrance and essential oils. We'll make at least one batch of soap. Soap made in the cold process method takes 4-6 weeks to cure, so you'll take home 3 already cured cold process soap samples. The class handout will be sent to you via email before the class. The class handout has the whole process from start to finish, properties of different vegetable oils, terminology of soap making, info on colorants and suppliers list. Cold process soap takes 4-6 weeks to cure before you can use it. You will leave with sample sized bars of soap that has already cured and a small block of soap that we will make in class for you to take home and cure. Payments are non-refundable. If you need to cancel (for any reason) and you call us with at least 24 hours notice, you are eligible for a half credit of your class fee to use for any future class. This is not a refund, but a future credit. No credits for no-shows. If we cancel the class due to low enrollment or illness, we will fully refund your payment.
