I was just wondering if you guys give out lessons. My friends and I were interested in doing this over the summer but we're too scared to do it by ourselves. Thanks!


I wish I could give lessons but unfortunately I'm not set up to do so. I've recently moved to Vancouver Island and my home is very small.

You can do this very easily without an instructor.

Print out the instructions for each of you and study them. It's much easier if there are a couple of people because it's more likely that a step will not be missed.

When it's time to make your soap, place out all the tools and ingredients and start weighing them. Don't mix until you've got everything set up and put away what isn't needed.

Take your time and you'll do just fine.

Good luck,

Soap Making Tutorial

If you'd like to purchase a great tutorial, visit the Bramble Berry website. They have a wonderful cold-process soap making DVD. Anne Marie (Bramble Berry's owner) does an excellent job covering all of the steps in her tutorial.

Good luck and happy soaping!

Classes in Vancouver

I took my soapmaking class at blim (www.blim.ca) and it was a pretty decent "starter" class if you're worried about playing with lye for the first time without someone showing you what to do. It was very basic, but a good place to start. :)
