Nearly a decade ago, Winter learned the art of soap making from a master soapmaker in Vermont. Each spring and fall, she hosts soap making classes drawing participants from around the country who wish to learn traditional methods of making natural soaps by hand.
“My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed your beginner soap making class…the day was so special for us… your enthusiasm, such a joy to be around your energy…your place there is so sweet, the weather was beautiful and the soap making fun. We are gathering the items needed to try it at home! Ever have one of those days where everything is so very cool? That was our Sleepy Moon soap making day with Winter! Thank You!” Sharon
Have you ever wanted to learn to make soap? The best way to learn is by doing it yourself with the guidance of an experienced soap maker! Our intensive, hands-on classes will cover aspects of soapmaking including: ingredients and sources, process, finishing, and design techniques. The Sleepy Moon soapmakers will help you create cold-process soap using ingredients selected for their beneficial skin-care and aromatherapy properties. You’ll take home over 1 pound of soap!
