Since 2001 many aspiring soapmakers have joined Tim for weekend and week-long soap making workshops at the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, North Carolina, to learn how to make cold process Soap.

We constructed classroom and workshop space at The Soap Shed which allows us to teach soap making onsite as well. The making, cutting, selling and shipping of twelve tons (24,000 pounds) of soap each year - all by hand - requires a special kind of operation, all on view for you to see and learn about when you take one of our classes.

All soapmaking classes are hands-on soapmaking classes - meaning that after watching Tim demonstrate making the first batch so that you see the process and safety procedures used, YOU become the soapmaker!

This fact alone makes our classes unusual, because many soapmaking classes and workshops are primarily demonstrations which allow participants to watch, but not make any soap themselves.

Learn how to make soap under the guidance of a retired science professor who can help you get started, and later support you in creating your own recipes, determining your own mold, batch and bar sizes, as you step up to managing large batches or beginning a business.

You can take the classes you need, as your soapmaking journey progresses.

All our classes can be offered privately, customized to your needs. Let us help you accelerate your progress! Email us for details.
