Recently, a new studio was opened in the Junction - SkyFactory Studio. The studio is located above Crema and Wise Daughters. It is studio workspace for Toronto artist Sandra Muscat, but it is also used as gallery space, and it is large and bright enough to be ideal for hands on workshops. At present, Sandra is offering "Journal With Fluid Paint" and "Create An Altered Book" creative workshops along with Junction fellow artist Rhonda Nolan. They plan on
developing workshops for moms and kids to do together, but for now, the workshops are open to everyone.
