Are you an established soaper & really looking to learn some new skills? Founder of Loft Soap Jen Grimes & founder of Mission Peak Soap David Critchfield have collaborated to create Liquid Soap Making and Transparent Soap Making Class Handouts. In addition, David has compiled all his knowledge from years of experience making large batches of soap into his Big Batch Soap Making Class Handouts.

Please note that the above handouts do not cover the basics of making Cold Process Soap and we assume you already know how to make soap from scratch (using lye) on your own, or have purchased our Cold Process Soap 101 Recorded Video eClass.

For a limited time, you can purchase all David & Jen’s Class Handouts in this handy bundle & save $35! Regular price is $117, and you’ll pay just $82 (that’s 30% off).

david critchfield teacher picDavid Critchfield, veteran Soapmaker & founder of Mission Peak Soap Products began soap making in 1995 when his wife presented him with a beginning soap making book. From the early days of ugly soap and vanishing fragrances, David turned his hobby into a steady stream of income producing fine, aromatic, handcrafted soap for fund raisers, local health food stores and specialty retailers. He joined forces with Lori way back in 2005 to expand the variety of soap making classes at The Nova Studio. Even though he’s retired from teaching classes (after 10 great years), we’re thrilled to have the products of his years of expertise available for sale as instant PDF downloads. Learn how to make really big batches of soap (his specialty) as well as other intermediate/advanced soap making topics from David.


Jen headshotJen Grimes started her descent down the make-your-own cosmetic rabbit hole after stumbling over books with vintage cosmetic recipes in her local library. After picking up and putting down books on how to make soap (all those bizarre ingredients and safety measures!), she took the plunge, promptly became addicted, and was certified as a soapmaker through the Handcrafted Soap & Cosmetics Guild (HSCG). Today, Jen is a proud member of and volunteer for HSCG & owns and operates Loft Soap. She has a passion for hot-processed soap, loves funny-looking soap and can often be found communing with other soapmakers at The Nova Studio. Learn intermediate & advanced soap making topics from Jen.
