My First Soaping Class

I so glad I registered for Shelley’s beginning soaping class, she is a great teacher and very patient with me since I am a newbie, she started with basics and broke it down to small pieces for me to graphs the lesson. I will take more with her when she a course.
By the way, she is available if you have any question and that’s so helpful for a beginner.

New soaper goes from scared to confident

I made my first soap ever in Shelley Noelle's Garden Moise’s beginners soap making class. Although I had researched and read and then researched some more I was still nervous about making soap. I was so afraid that I’d mess up. In fact, I was so scared I had planned on buying liquid castille soap forever until I realized the need for me to make my own and the fact that my customers want bar soap 🤷🏾‍♀️

In this private class for beginners Shelley was able to answer all of my 50/11 questions 🤣🤷🏾‍♀️ AND she was so patient with me. She even listened to my story, my why and helped me create a formula based on what’s important to me. 🥇

Because Shelley was able to explain the “why” to all of my soaping questions I am confident in creating my own formulas. I even snap pictures to let Shelley know how I’m progressing and to as questions if I run into any issue I don’t know how to resolve on my own ☺️

Thank you, Shelley 🙏🏾

Listen Linda...Linda Listen!! If you are new to soap making or if you think you're a novice I recommend Ms. Shelley's class. The classes are designed to meet you where you are on your soap making journey. Before I took my class I was afraid to use soap calc. After the class , Ive used Soap Calc everyday. Shelley broke soap calc down to the nth degree. She is very knowledgeable in her crsft and shares her resources. I can truly say, because of what I learned during my three sessions my confidence has increased and I am in my "lab" soaping more than I did prior to the class. Thank you Shelley!!
