Like you, I have a passion for making natural products. I also love teaching & sharing what I know with other Makers. I started teaching in 2001 & opened The Nova Studio in Point Richmond in 2003. We held classes there until 2015. Now, I live in Ohio & our classes are predominantly online... so you can learn from anywhere!

The Nova Studio currently offers many opportunities for you to learn from home - like eClasses, Class HandoutseBooks & eZines by many talented teachers. We also have a helpful Blog with free tutorials, tips & tricks, recommended suppliers, exclusive discounts and more to help your business grow & thrive. 

One of my favorite things is helping Makers get farther in their businesses. Whether it's troubleshooting, product formulating, or help with teaching classes, if you tell me what you need I can let you know if I'm a good fit for the job (if I'm not, I'll refer you to someone I know who can help you). We can accomplish a lot in just a few hours (through video or phone consults). If you're near Dayton, OH, I also do private lessons. Connect with me at email@thenovastudio.com

Video eClass: Exfoliants in CP Soap

Company: The Nova Studio

Date & Time: Anytime

The Nova Studio

Curious about what can be safely added to your Cold Process (CP) Soap to create lovely exfoliating bar soaps?

Not sure what your options are, exactly which type of ingredient to buy, or precisely how much to use?

Want to know which additives contribute to gentle exfoliation, moderate exfoliation, or heavy-duty exfoliation?

Hope to confidently create different exfoliating soap bars that your friends or customers will love?

Many natural ingredients can be added to handmade soap to create an exfoliating bar. Seeds, nuts, shells, grains, dried foods & herbs can be added to soap to help slough off dead skin cells. They can be used whole, chopped, or powdered.

After teaching soapmaking for 20 years & I’m happy to finally have a thorough, research-based class on exfoliants to share with you!

Have you ever wondered what was involved with making all-natural soap, from scratch in your own kitchen?

Many commercial soaps contain cheap petroleum-based ingredients & synthetic detergents that can be harsh on sensitive skin. By learning how to make soap in your own kitchen, you can tailor it to suit any skin type as well as insure that only the most beneficial ingredients go into your finished bars.

Video eClass: Fizzy Bath Bombs & Shower Steamers (7 Demo Videos + Class Handouts)

Company: The Nova Studio

Date & Time: Anytime

The Nova Studio

In my 18+ years of making & teaching Bath Fizzies, I've learned a lot. This eClass comes with 7 Demo Videos & Printable Class Handouts (my 55-page Fizzy eBook)... is the most extensive in my collection! It's super organized & easy to follow, with a hyperlinked Table of Contents to find topics quickly.

My goal in offering this Fizzies eClass is to share as much info & insight as I can about making Fizzies, to help you become an expert & make more successful batches. I don't believe in a “perfect recipe” for making Bath Fizzies. No one recipe will work for everyone, every time, in every season & every location. (This is very unlike making CP Soap or handmade Lotions & Creams.)

That said... once you to understand all the potential ingredients & influencing factors… all that YOU can control, I know you’ll be formulating your own recipes & creating unique tub-time treats in no time.
