Happy New Year!

Thank you to all our members, students, partners and suppliers for a busy and successful 2022! We wish everyone a safe, healthy, happy and prosperous New Year.

We are currently closed while taking inventory and then taking a needed break in January so we won’t be officially open again until January 18, 2023. But we will be around off and on so don’t hesitate to email if you need something and we will do the best we can.

Please note we have a ton of new glass fusing and jewelry making classes set up for the first part of 2023 through Cabrillo Extension. The classes tend to be small and fill up fast, so don’t delay — check them out and register sooner rather than later. (To see all our Cabrillo Extension classes, go to https://cabrillo.augusoft.net/index.cfm?fuseaction=1070 and select Creator Haven from the drop-down menu under “Location”)

Best wishes to everyone! –Pat and Glenn

Vacation

Creator Haven will be closed from September 9 through September 23. We will be back all refreshed and ready to go on September 24.

In the meantime, don’t forget to sign up for fall classes!
