this was such a fun experience! With such a large group I feel that the 2nd "teacher" should have been more experienced/informed/confident because, there was a lot of miscommunication from her. This led to people starting before they should have and at time mixing ingredients that out of order etc. The work space was a bit squishy with all the people but other than that this was amazingly fun! I LOVE that shop and and plan on coming back with my friend to take the cheese board class!
The influx of late sign ups the morning of the class t made it more difficult for instructor. It was a bit hectic and made the experience less enjoyable.
Our facilitator was great at explaining the process. The space was kind of tight, I wish we were able to work on two tables so that we weren't on top of one another. Also, this is not the biggest deal in the world, but I would have preferred not to share stick blenders because there was no consistency in how folks stored them after they used it. If a general announcement about placing them in a clean bowl or something was made, that would have made it better. People were just leaving them on the tarp, close to other used materials like spatulas and lye bowls. Lastly, it would have been helpful to have written steps on a board or wall for reference during the session. Overall this was a great time! Those were a few things that could have made it smoother for me, personally.
I realize that I have so much more to learn!!
I liked how all of the work stations were set up from the start with most everything we would need. Great to walk out of class with up to 10 homemade soaps! The colors and scents available were all good. However, the class was way too large making it crowded and hard to move around the room. The instruction was weak at best. For a beginner class, the teacher needed to give an overview of equipment in front of each person and walk slowly through each of the steps of the soap making process. Having the steps on a sheet of paper on the wall with small print that nobody could see was unacceptable. I was also concerned about having kids in the class working with such potent materials like the lye (sp?) That stuff is seriously dangerous if not handled with care. With some improvements, the class could be outstanding.
