TIFTON – The Tifton-Tift County Chamber of Commerce welcomed Gather Creative Studio DIY to Downtown with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
"God Gave me this dream to express my creativity outward more than what I was doing," said Laura Pate, owner.
Laura Pate and her husband, Chip Pate, own and run the studio together. Chip is the behind-the-scenes guy as he puts it and Laura is the creative one of the two.
The DIY studio offers individual and group sessions that include ceramics, painting, etc. The splatter room is a main attraction. Children and adults can use the room for paint fights and slinging paint around for fun.
"We probably got one of the coolest places in town right now, and it's called the splatter room," Chip Pate said. "That will be awesome for the kids to come in and sling paint with their sister, brother or mother."
The studio its their official grand opening the following Saturday and now open to do business and give locals an outlet for creativity.
The hours are scattered for the studio. The studio is closed Sundays and Mondays but open to rent for private sessions from 6-9 p.m.
Tuesdays and Thursdays are "Momma's Day Out," from 9:30 a.m.-noon.
Tuesday through Friday the studio offers open paint, 4-7 p.m., and workshops, 6-9 p.m.
