We "heart" Ron....

.. especially when he hearts us! Ron Lehocky, heart pin maker extraordinaire, is coming to visit Creative Journey Studios. He and his lovely wife Peg are vacationing in Georgia, and Ron has offered to give a free demo on how he makes his amazing hearts. ( He has raised over $180,000 for his charity, The Kids Center for Pediatric Therapies  $10 at a time.) Come join us on Saturday, June 23 from 1 to 3 pm. We'll have lots of hearts for you to choose from. (Here's a link to see some of his hearts posted on Polymer Clay Daily before he topped 18,000.

Back from the hills....

Barbara McGuire has moved to the mountains north of Asheville and has settled in a darling little house outside of Mars Hill. She will be back in town to teach a one day, special class for us, here at Creative Journey Studios. Join us on May 26th from 10 AM to 5 PM to learn how to make "polymer cabochons with silver bezels". This two sided necklace will provide lots of possibilities for texture options, as well as color.

You'll need to decide how many beads you want in your finished creation, as you sign up and we'll reserve that many bezels for you (the silver is in addition to the class fee of $85) There is more information on the Spring Class page about this and other upcoming classes.

Also coming up in May on the 25th (from 10 to noon), Patricia DiBona is teaching her introduction to soldering class. Learn to solder using time tested techniques. The class will cover basic layering, creating, wrapping and soldering techniques. Glass, images and resources will be included in the $75 class fee. Finish your piece with a leather choker or a silver plated chain that you will assemble to complete your project.
