I attended the 9 Day Soap Making Intensive Course in Huddersfield. There is only word that I would describe the course and that is “Fabulous”. It’s a must for anyone looking to start up in business or if you just want to do it as a hobby then you can. Sarah & Shaun run the Soap School and I couldn’t have wished for better. They made everyone feel part of the extended “Soap School Family”. I was honoured with the warmth that they showed to me and my fellow classmates. If you want to go somewhere else then that is one’s own prerogative, but Shaun and Sarah treated everyone as “people” rather than commodities. Not only was I enriched with the wealth of knowledge disseminated but most importantly I gained in terms of forming lifelong friendships.
The 9 day course was fun and broken down into manageable chunks it was suited for everyone. Normally, you go on a course where the person teaching rushes through without having patience or regard for the learner but with Sarah and Shaun it was a different learning experience. If you had a question then that would be answered in manner that was neither patronising nor condescending; Sarah and Shaun would go over the problem until you felt comfortable. Upon completion of the course you don’t just think that’s it and walk away, but where Soap School differs from the competition is with their after care service. You can call them up or send an email and they will respond to whatever issue one may have.
Shaun has many talents apart from his intellect boy can he cook I tried some amazing dishes, my stomach can vouch for that! Sarah what can I say about her but she is simply an amazing person, with a warm smile who genuinely cares about everyone; she is in my eyes, “simply the best”.
