Private Soapmaking Class


Are you looking for one-on-one, individualized soapmaking instruction?  Whether you are a new soapmaker looking for a mentor, or a more seasoned soapmaker looking for guidance with advanced swirling techniques, we are pleased to offer private, one-on-one instruction tailored to meet your individual needs. 

Let us come to you! Private classes are taught in your home by Ann Herman, owner and operator of River City Soapworks.  Ann is an experienced soapmaker with Advanced Soapmaker Certification through the Handcrafted Soap and Cosmetic Guild (HSCG).  After purchasing a private soapmaking class, Ann will contact you personally to explore your goals for the class and to coordinate a mutually agreeable class date and time.  With YOUR goals in mind, Ann will develop a 2 1/2 to 3-hour soapmaking curriculum that begins at YOUR level of expertise and comprehensively addresses each of your goals for the class.  Make your own 2-pound batch of handmade soap, and learn to perfect the art and science of soapmaking in a hands-on private class that moves at YOUR own pace, in YOUR own home, under the guidance of an expert in the field of soapmaking!

Ann is a wonderful instructor! I signed up for a private lesson walking in as a beginner. She told me everything I needed to know on how to make soap. I walked away confident and excited to start my first batch of soap. I would highly recommend Ann if you are looking to sign up for a soap class at any level. You won't regret it...I promise!

Individual Class

Written by Samantha Mohler on Apr 18th 2016

I took the individual class with Ann and learned more in that short time with her than I could have found in books or on the Internet!! She was incredibly helpful and informative, and I would highly recommend this class to anyone interested in soap making! She walked me through every step of the way, and I walked away with a beautiful 2 pound loaf of soap that I never would have been brave enough to try on my own. I'm so glad I was able to find her!!
