A fun creative take on something so simple - soap. Great shape options for all occasions. Lots of scents and colors to choose from. We had a comfortable table to ourselves to work together on our creations.

I had a great time with my grandson making some soap and decorating them. It was fun, interactive and entertaining. However, the quality of the soap is very poor and my grandson was disappointed the first time he used the bar. It disintegrated into nothing...More

Adorable little shop to make your own soap. They have such a variety of options for shapes, scents and colors including paints. Last time I went it was a little too hot upstairs, but overall the experience was fun.

We found this place on Trip Advisor so we checked it out. It was fun making our own soap. We went on a Saturday, and it was VERY busy. The staff were helpful but spread thin with so many people there.

We have a $5 studio fee that covers essential oils, colors, etc, and then soap costs 5 cents per gram. Most of our bars are less than $5, and people who come and watch or don't make anything aren't charged a studio fee... More
