This is a 5 day intensive, fast tracked workshop covering natural cold process soap making for the first two days, and handmade bath & body cosmetic products the following three days. We will be covering several hands-on studio training classes per day with short breaks in between. We will also conduct at least one lecture class per day.

You will need to arrange a hotel room locally (see suggestions below), as well as your own meals & transportation. This is a very intensive workshop. Class starts at 10:00 am, breaks at noon for  lunch, resumes at 1:00 pm, and lasts until 4 pm each of the five workshop days. You will leave with product from each class (approximately 20 lbs), a training manual with lessons, instructions, and many  recipes to go home and make again on your own. This class is taught by Kelly Bloom, owner of former BloomWorks Soap Company, and Southern Soapers..

Payments can be made in installments. If using the installment plan, you MUST allow for your Boot Camp being paid before your class date. We will invoice you for your subsequent installment payments.
