About Our Teachers
Indie Craft Experience
An Atlanta native, Christy co-founded the Indie Craft Experience (ICE) in 2005. As a screen- and relief-printer and jewelry designer, she felt the need for a market in Atlanta with a different kind of aesthetic.
An Agnes Scott College graduate, Christy has a background in Public Relations and currently works as a Teaching Artist at the High Museum of Art. She lives in East Atlanta Village with her husband and toddler son (who are both very cute!).
Christy will teach relief printing, screen printing, Shibori dyeing with indigo, and Creative Day.
Glue & Glitter
My name is Becky Striepe (rhymes with "sleepy"), and I am a vegan food writer from Atlanta, Georgia with a passion for making our planet a healthier, happier, and more compassionate place to live. My mission is to make vegan food accessible to everyone! I've been vegan since 2006 and cooking since I was big enough to hold a spoon and stir. I teach pickling, jam-making, and other vegan cooking workshops around the Atlanta area and can't wait to share the joys of vegan cooking with you!
Becky will teach pickling.
