I've received so many requests for names of soapmaking teachers that I decided to provide a list of them, at least for the United States. Some teachers give individual instruction, some have classes, some do both. Since I have not been a student of any of the listed teachers, I can't give personal recommendations.
Also see this guide from the Handcrafted Soap and Cosmetic Guild.
Do you offer soapmaking instruction in the United States? Please use the contact form to let me know. Include your name, location, and preferred email address or other way for students to reach you.
