Soap making Workshop Schedule

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

We have now constructed a classroom space at The Soap Shed that allows us to teach soap making onsite as well.

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.

Learning how to make soap under the guidance of a retired science professor who can help you get started; create your own recipes and determine your own mold, batch and bar sizes; step up to managing large batches and beginning a business, is a rare opportunity.

You can take the classes you need, as your journey along the soap making continuum progresses.

Take advantage of learning from Tim, and learn by doing!
