Goodbye 2013! Welcome 2014!!!

2014 is here and we are excited to start the new year.  Ellen Prophater and I are planning workshops here at Creative Journey Studios. We know you have been waiting eagerly to hear the schedule. I’m sure you will be pleased with what we have lined up so far.  We will also keep you up to date on our travel schedule as we take Filigree & More on the road. In February, we head to Maryland for Cabin Fever in Laurel. We are looking forward to some great classes, reconnecting with old friends, making some new friends, and spending some quality time with my new grandson in the process.

March 14 thru the 16th , Loretta Lam will be heading south to Buford for three days of classes.  Next Sarah Shriver will be in from California for three days, April 4th thru the 6th. In the middle of May we’ll be in Virginia for a retreat, and will be bringing Meisha Barbee back for three days of classes from May 23rd thru the 25th.  Marla Frankenberg will be teaching some of her advanced canes like her famous dot cane, watercolor flower canes, fern canes and more when she comes in June.  We have decided to ask our teachers to plan a one day class for either Friday or Monday, and to teach a two day workshop on the weekend. That seems to amortize better both the teacher’s travel and the out of town student’s travel expenses.

Heading back on the road again, we will be there when the Southern Connecticut Polymer Clay Guild has their retreat at the end of July and the IPCA is in Columbus, Ohio in August. Lindly Haunani will be here in September and Dayle Doroshow in November. Check the “upcoming classes” page for class descriptions and prices, and to see example pictures so you can drool and make your plans! I’m always eager to talk on the phone (404-314-5767) about the classes and get you signed up. Your registration is confirmed when we receive your payment. Classes fill quickly because we limit the number of students to enhance your experience and maximize your interaction with the instructor. We have some regular followers who sign up early, so don’t procrastinate! I’m sure we will fill in some of the blank spaces and add more detailed information as time passes.  We are always open to having more fun.
