JODI ROBERTS - OWNER/OPERATOR
With a BFA from the University of Delaware, Jodi’s background includes work as a metalsmith, muralist and graphic designer. She eventually opened an Etsy shop to sell her work and in 2014 had an idea to teach workshops so others could come and be creative. This quickly became a reality and she expanded to the current location in 2015.
A New York native, Roberts moved to Maryland in 2005 and now resides in Severna Park with her husband, two children and two dogs, Liberty & Justice. Pastimes include running 5Ks with the family, spending time with friends and doing home improvement projects.

Prior to joining the studio team, Heather taught DIY classes out of her garage. She's been with our studio since the latter part of 2015 and we'd be lost without her!

Robin is a mom, theatre artist, and lover of all things crafty. She has a B.A. in Theatre from Goucher College. Before taking on her current job as a full-time mother, Robin worked for a theatre which allowed her to use skills such as carpentry, sewing, and painting in a professional setting. She loves to do home improvement projects, go to the beach with her family, and refinish used items in need of a facelift- especially upcycling dolls to create a more natural and realistic look. Robin lives in Severna Park with her husband, two sons, and their dogs Ruby and Pearl.
