Now open for business!

After months of planning and extensive renovations to our new Studio space, we have opened our doors. Lots of thanks go out to the contractors and team of volunteers who helped and shared their knowledge and experience. It was very much a “hands on” project and labour of love and dedication. The Studio has been filled with laughter, punctuated with a few timely exclamations—if only these walls could talk!

Inclusive community

If you are a long-time glass hobbyist or artist, coming to our Studio may be a different experience to what you are used to. While we may not be able to anticipate all your expectations, our strategy has been carefully developed to offer you considerable membership benefits and the chance to be part of our community.

If you have no experience making glass art, it has its own unique rewards. We host both custom and scheduled workshops for all skill levels that showcase a diverse selection of techniques for stained and kiln formed glass. Our friendly and knowledgeable instructors speak in plain language and teach best practices—all in a safe and welcoming environment. Explore your own creativity as you make one or more truly one-of-a-kind pieces. You may surprise yourself.

Working studio

We are a fully functioning art glass studio, offering an array of creative services to individuals and organizations for commercial, residential, and sacred applications. Whether contemporary or traditional, we can design and execute pieces and installations for a variety of budgets and purposes.
