Q&A with La Shonda Tyree, Owner/Lead Instructor
How is your approach different than that of other professionals in your field?
Hands-on classes, and small class sizes.
Do you or your staff have any special certifications or degrees?
I'm a certified advanced soap-maker.
What aspect of your job, or the services you offer, most often surprises people?
That I make and teach soap-making full time. And many people are surprised to learn that there is actually a fragrance for soap called "monkey farts."
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
The building the classes are held in is a reclaimed 19th century mill that has been converted into artist studios. It's located in the Great Falls Historic District of Paterson, home of the Great Falls National Park.
