We are currently working on a schedule with some of our inhouse artists to see who is comfortable in teaching courses and when they will be able to do that. Keep in mind that as we open up our classroom again, the class sizes will still be smaller (because our classroom space is one the smaller size) we will still be requiring that all class participants wear masks and stay as social distanced as they can, and we will be offering a hand sanitizing station. As we finalize the schedule, we will be adding the information on our Classes and Events page for you to be able to read more about the classes and purchase your tickets from there.

  • Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and New Hours for 2021

    Hello everyone! Just a quick update on our store hours as we move forward into the holiday season and into the new year. Anyone else just happy to wave goodbye to 2020? I know we are. Join us in saying goodbye to 2020 by coming by the store! We would love to hang out with you guys, hear about your year, and look forward to new beginnings for 2021.

If we don't end up seeing you, we all want to wish you a happy holiday season and an amazing new year! Impulsive Hours For the Rest of 2020 Christmas Eve we will be closing early for Thursday, December 24th at 3 p.m. Let the Christmas celebrations begin!

We are more than happy to answer any of your questions about Phase 3 and the store. Question for Our Creatives This question is open for anyone to answer! If you are reading this blog and/or signed up to get our emails, you are one of Our Creatives! Get Social with Us or leave your answer in the comments 😊 How are you celebrating Christmas this year? We're honestly curious. With the virus still a concern, how is that changing your holiday season? What things are you having to change? What things are staying the same? We're very mindful here at Impulsive and something that we have decided is not seeing extended family this year. Especially with the older generations in our families, we wanted to protect them as much as possible. So there are some family members that we will be calling or setting up a Zoom with so that we can protect them. It was a hard to come to this decision, but we feel it's the best way to protect them. Something so wholesome that I've seen so far is that countries are going the extra mile to show children that Santa is still coming to visit them! I thought that was just so cute that they were concerned about keeping this tradition intact for the children all around the world. No matter how this holiday season looks like for you, we hope that you have a wonderful time. We want you to have a fun and safe holiday with loved ones this year. 💕 Merry Christmas! XOXO - Impulsive

While she has always loved art and working with her hands, her formal training is in education and management. Shortly before retiring from a career in higher education, she discovered alcohol ink. The flow and designs created by the ink had her hooked. She started making coasters. A few months later, a friend was preparing for a holiday craft show and discovered her space was larger than expected. Needing to fill space, she asked Tedi if she had some of those “cool” coasters ready and if not, could she make some, so she would sell them at the fair. By the end of the fair, it was evident that others enjoyed the patterns of alcohol ink as well. A few months later, in January 2014, Carolina Color Creations was born. In addition to coasters, Carolina Color Creations offers magnets, inked candles, upcycled lighted wine bottles, switch plate covers, and even some jewelry, key chains and bookmarks. Alcohol ink can be used on a variety of non-porous materials and Tedi loves experimenting with different substrates. For a change of pace, she also makes beaded ceiling fan pulls and welcomes special order coasters. She has done coasters with pets, weddings, vacations, and images special for the recipient to create lasting memories.

Other than that, Greiner does custom art projects, teaches lessons, blogs, provides blog promo services and does some social media management and SEO.

He got into woodworking in 2015 by building a headboard out of pallet wood just to see if he could do it, and after that experience he found that he loved the many nuances of the craft. He enjoys designing projects and problem solving all the issues that will inevitably come up as a project takes shape. He also enjoys the feeling of satisfaction when a project is done well or the warmth of a mistake fueled fire when the project doesn't go according to plan. Either way, a day making sawdust is a good day. You can see more of Chris' work on the Weathered Cottage Design Facebook page.

Russell Knop G L CREATIVE l S a S y ​ My first pottery class was in 1968 at Sandhills Community College and I went on to complete my B.S. at Appalachian State University in Art Education and my M.S. at UNC-CH in Therapeutic Recreation. After various twists and turns professionally in the world of mental health and substance abuse, my hands continued to stay in clay. I retired in 2015 and now find myself with more time to explore form and function on a new level. As one who believes in bringing art to the community, I enjoy teaching pottery to all age groups - children at the Last Fridays Street Fair in Hillsborough and at the Orange County Senior Center. It is also a privilege to have my wares at and share space with the other artists at Impulsive Creativity. ​ ​ Quick View Abstract Swirl Ceramic Jar Price $20.00 Quick View Ceramic Jar Price $30.00 Quick View Ceramic Sponge Holder Price $15.00 Quick View Blue Ceramic Bowl Price $30.00 Quick View Abstract Swirl Ceramic Jar Price $20.00 Quick View Ceramic Jar Price $30.00 Quick View Ceramic Sponge Holder Price $15.00 Quick View Blue Ceramic Bowl Price $30.00 Quick View Abstract Swirl Ceramic Jar Price $20.00 Quick View Ceramic Jar Price $30.00 BONNY ROOZE Redbud Fiber Arts ​ I am Bonny Rooze; the heart, soul and hands behind Redbud Fiber Arts. I am primarily a knitter, but I also love working with color and texture in many other forms: fabric, ribbon, buttons. I knit for pleasure, to make lovely things, to give handmade gifts, to share my passion with other and through that, to relieve tension. There is nothing more satisfying than choosing a project with someone else in mind, watching it come to life through your efforts, then presenting it and seeing the recipient's reaction. I grew up in MA, went to school in PA, and moved to NC over 20 years ago. My children were born here. My roots are set and I have found vast, welcoming communities of support around my craft here in the south (including Impulsive Creativity, of course!) I'm not sure the locals would agree, but I feel like a NC native now. ​ ​ Quick View Round Knit Washcloths Price $8.00 Quick View Knit Bears Price $22.00 Quick View Spa Day Set Price $25.00 Quick View Infinity Scarf Price $68.00 Quick View Round Knit Washcloths Price $8.00 Quick View Knit Bears Price $22.00 Quick View Spa Day Set Price $25.00 Quick View Infinity Scarf Price $68.00 TRUDY THOMSON http://fernsandfancy.gallery ​ I am drawn to rhythms and patterns found in the natural environment. This appears in many forms: the ripples and waves of water, the effects created by the ebb and flow of surf on sand, the wispy appearance of fire, the swirls of clouds, the flutter of leaves on trees, the multifaceted shapes of buds and flowers, the feathered wings of birds. These themes are expressed many different ways in my fabric works. My fiber work also results from the use of organic materials born of the earth. Threads for fabric are spun from silk worms, grown from cotton, or sheared from sheep. My dyes and marbling on silk have a translucent quality. The imagery of the marbled pieces is diffuse and organic. Patterns result from manipulating colors of paint dropped on a viscous surface; the resistance of water allows patterns to emerge; repeatedly dying one panel results in cross currents of color and form.

I have a hubby, a 22 year old son, and two large fur babies. I have a day job in which I am part of a finance team for an educational publishing company. But when you get right down to why I started my Kritterz- here it is, I love, love whimsy!!! Anything that makes you smile, wonder, and want to create. I started off making sock animals, because let's face it- there are so many awesome socks out there the possibilities are endless. I also noticed that when I went to craft shows, there wasn't a lot there for kids(even though they were being dragged to these things by their parents) So, I came up with a cool spin on some basic patterns, showed them to my brother who is great with branding, and he said, " these are great, go to shows and see how you do!" My Kritterz were born! As for my needle felting, those started with making a gift for friend's birthday! From there they have evolved from my imagination and wanting to make people smile. I love that they can be the perfect gift for the one you have no idea what to give.

One does metal sculptures (Brian), and the other does pour paintings (Jamie). At first glance, these mediums don't have many similarities, but in reality the way you work with them is similar! For both, you have to get them to a state where they flow easier so that you can work with them better. For pour painting, you add things to acrylic paint so that they can flow across the canvas to make stunning and completely unique patterns. Then for metalworking, you need to super heat a metal to connect all the other pieces to create the piece of art you want it to be. You have to get both mediums "melty" to get them to create wondrous works of art. Get to know this couple and they will melt your heart just like with their work!
