Huronia Art Glass

 

The Studio

The large studio, which represents one half of the total store space is very well lit and located on the same level as the store for easy access.  It contains all of the regularly used equipment like grinders and soldering irons and there is a light table and a came saw (for framing), furnishings, and tools for the programs, workshops and open studio time for all of your individual artistic endeavours.

Open Studio - The studio and equipment is available every day during opening hours, except when courses are being held on Tuesday andThursday evenings from 7:00 to 9:30 pm and Wednesday and Saturdaymornings from 9:30 am to noon.  No instructor is available during this time with the exception of Thursday mornings.  Rita Thompson will be available from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm on Thursday mornings to answer questions or help with any problems you are having with your project.  Open Studio is on a Drop-in basis, so you don't need to book time.  Cost is $10.00 for three hours which includes work space, equipment and camaraderie with other glass lovers.

The maximum preferred number for programs and open studio time is eighteen. Eight tables are available, and they are at the perfect height for most adults. For young people, we supply step-ups, as needed.  

If you're interested in fused glass, pre-programmed kilns are available to book for your project.  Larger kilns - one is 22" in diameter at $35.00/firing and the other is 25.5"x41" - at $25/firing as well as several 6"x6" hot boxes (small kilns often used for jewelry) at $10/firing.  We recommend you book he kilns ahead of time to avoid arriving and finding the kiln is in use.  All of the equipment necessary for glass fusing is available, including the moulds, etc.

If there is anything that you need, but don't see, just ask. Oh, yes, we do have washroom facilities, (just in case you were wondering)
