We are a soapmaking school. Offering all of our classes in our Apothecary Lab located inside our retail store called Mossy Creek Natural downtown Historic Perry Georgia (south of Atlanta). Our students attend from all over the country to learn how to create soapmaking works of art.

We enjoy helping you create something unique and having the confidence from knowing that we are PROFESSIONAL soap makers, who make a living by producing a product and selling it daily.

We believe in creating a product that is not only good for you but made properly and safely. We take pride in knowing that each student that has come through our doors leave with the experience and knowledge of the instructor who gave the class. While it is easy to find someone to teach you how to make soap it is another to embody the experience with openness and a willingness to truly teach.

Whatever your reasons for choosing us, the bottom line, however, is that almost everyone that has, has not been disappointed.
