Weekend at the Nova Studio

The new Nova Studio Sign

I had a blast last weekend at the Nova Studio, where I participated in a Lip Sugar Scrub demo at the 7th Anniversary Party and taught the Simply Sweet Sugar Scrubs Class. The Nova Studio is a place to learn everything bath and body. The owner, Lori Nova is an expert soap maker offering classes in Cold Process soap making, and a 4 day Bath and Body Boot Camp. The studio also offers classes taught by a variety of teachers including Lotions & Creams, Healing Balms and Salves, Advanced CP soap Design, Eco-Friendly Candle making, the 2 Day Soapylove "Book" Camp, a 4 Day Bath & Body BUSINESS Boot Camp, and many more!

My class had students from all over the Bay Area and one couple that came all the way from Mexico City to take the class! I was honored. It was also nice to see some of my Facebook Fans there, after I figured out they were fans (darn those tiny avatar pics, and the fact that I suck with remembering names!)

The Anniversary party was a blast. There were a ton of raffle prizes generously donated by various companies which you can check out here. I was on a table featuring a demo and make & take lip sugar scrubs, Ruth Esteves of Sirona Springs  demo'ed the shrink wrap system from National Shrink Wrap which I own and which is awesome, Alice Duvernell did a make & take and Q&A session on Facial Steams sponsored by Mountain Rose Herbs, and Melanie Monteverde did a demo and samples of Aroma Beads sponsored by Elements Bath & Body.

Here are some pics!

  1. Erin, I hear your class was incredible and a total blast! Hope to catch your class next time! ~Danielle

  2. I am so happy that you heard good things about it Danielle! I will be teaching it again next semester so be sure to check in with the Nova Studio for updates!

  3. That afternoon was so much fun; the time just flew by! And Erin's class was great, too. I'll be making some scrub very soon!

  5. Thanks so much for this blog post Erin! It was SO awesome to have you there at the party. Everyone said they loved it and your demo was a bit hit. I can't wait to see what you will propose for next semester (I know you are working on that now). I've been using the 4 different types of scrubs that you made in the class since the party, and my skin is SO soft.

    Also, for those interested, I am almost done uploading the Sugar Scrub eClass to our website. That should be available for purchase in the next few days. Visit for more information.

  6. Loved your class and the demo you had at the Nova Studio. Look forward to seeing other interesting classes you will teach there.

  7. Sounds like it was a smashing success (and a ton of fun)!
