Great class! Simple, well explained information for melt and pour soap making. As a wheelchair user, the only problem was that the tables aren’t wheelchair friendly (very difficult to get close to the tables in a wheelchair, plus, if your wheelchair doesn’t raise like mine, the tables are too high to provide access to the table tops).

It was quite interesting. This seems to be another great hobby for me, since my recent retirement. I would like to learn techniques to make the soaps exciting. Josephine
