Everything old is new again! We (Ellen Prophater and Sue Sutherland) are moving forward as Creative Journey Studios. We are still in our wonderful facility (formerly Woman Creative) in Historic Buford, just north of Atlanta, Georgia. We are expanding our classroom area, enlarging our supply store and creating a dedicated tool room (with lots of fun 'toys'). We are setting up new individual work tables, putting up more lights and expanding the teacher's work area. We are scheduling more classes with a wider variety of teachers, even drawing on the international superstars!
We still have a fabulous gallery with work from over sixty artists, and our "historic" collection - 'Polymer ... from the Beginning', which presents significant works in polymer since the mid-80's.
We will miss Barbara McGuire, as she moves forward with new focus on writing and publishing, and hits the road again to teach (one of her first loves!) We wish her well and know that she'll be back with a face cane class when her life settles down again.
Patricia DiBona, one of our studio artists, has an exciting line-up of classes (silver soldering, book arts, collage, encaustic, painting, graphic design, and photoshop instruction.) We were fortunate to be able to call on Patricia to create our new logo.
Schedule a visit this year to immerse yourself in polymer clay art ... this place is mind boggling. Sign up for a class with Jana Roberts Benzon in December. Visit our supply store, Filigree & more, and stock up on American-made raw brass filigree, stampings and charms. Discover all the unique items we carry ... select Eurotools, Gilder's Paste, handmade Japanese paper collections, Nunn Design bezels, PYM II, Ranger inks and embossing powders, Renaissance Wax, antique keys, gold leaf, ethnic tribal beads from Afghanistan and Nepal ... all sorts of goodies to tempt you.
We're looking forward to seeing you soon. The coffee pot is on and we're ready to talk polymer!
