Contact us by phone (call or text 902-791-1171) or on FB Messenger to arrange rental of a take-home kit. We are also offering limited local delivery & pickup for products and kit rental. Our shop is once again open, though only from 10:00am-12:00 noon daily except Sundays. Due to COVID-19 precautions, we are doing extra cleaning of our store, and social distancing rules apply. There are no in-store workshops until further notice.
Take home Junk-de-Verre workshop kit:
We have created a new Fused Glass Take-Home kit so you can make your art at home and bring it back to us to be kiln-fired. A kit includes a large bag of washed glass off-cuts, a small bag of fun glass bits, washable white glue, and clear blanks for your artwork. Design and create your art at home! After you’ve returned the kit, along with your pieces to us, we’ll put them in the kiln to finish your fused-glass art. Once it’s finished, we’ll let you know and make arrangements for pickup or delivery.
This activity has three steps:
1. Rent a kit, take it home and design your art.
2. Return your kit and finished art back to our store to be kiln-fired.
3. Collect your fused glass masterpiece.
We are currently arranging local deliveries and pickups in a safe, “social distancing” way if you or someone you know is staying at home. Contact us if you’d like to arrange a kit delivery to someone in the local area.

PLEASE NOTE: The turn-around time for the take-home kits will obviously be longer due to the delays in picking up and delivering items.

We make sure everyone knows how to do the activity before starting. It’s easy to do but allows infinite possibility. Our glass comes in a huge variety of colours and shapes to make whatever you imagine. It’s very safe to handle — it’s prepared to remove points and sharp edges.
Finished pieces are ready within about a week.
