Please contact us if you wish to set up a group course. At this time we will not have any courses planned for the first half of 2021.

In Soapmaker Skills Group Courses we will cover all the key things you need to know to safely create soap at home for you and your family.  The purpose of this course is to give you the "tools" to take an idea and turn it into reality. 

If you attend each of these courses we will review safety, what supplies and equipment you’ll need to continue making soap at home, the basic chemistry of soapmaking, how to create recipes, how to scent and color your soap. We will also cover types of soapmaking, each class will either have a demonstration on how to make soap, or hands-on opportunities to make soap to take home and enjoy.  Below you’ll find a brief break out of what each course schedule holds.  

Course Outcomes:  At the end of each respective course students should be able to understand the basic soapmaking concepts covered.  If all classes in this series are attended the student should have the knowledge base to safely continue to make soap successfully for years to come. 

We strongly suggest if you have no experience in soapmaking that you attend basics 101 before attending any other soapmaking course we offer.

How we make our Soaps

Open tab

The Journey of Every Rock Creek Soap: Each bar of soap begins with sustainable ingredients that are prepared in small batches and hand-poured into our custom molds. Our soap rests for one full day before it is washed, hand-cut, trimmed and stamped. After curing for 30 days, our soap bars are placed in a biodegradable box made from recycled cardboard, then are ready to be sent directly to you!
