Classes

Creative Journey Studios has nurtured relationships with artists from around the world to foster the love of polymer clay. We invite these artists to teach their techniques and ideas to small groups of eager students at our facility. Classes range from single day one-on-one for those new to working with polymer to multi-day workshops from leading artists in the polymer world. We have created a comfortable, well lit classroom that fosters the sharing of information and successes.
