Workshops

We once again welcome the public into our space to make DIY fused glass art. We have modified the activity and our workshops areas to increase safety and limit sharing of tools and materials. We’re open Tue-Sat 10-4 and Sun 12-4. In-store workshops are limited to family and “bubble” groups only.

“Junk-de-Verre” DIY Fused Glass Workshop

Make a one-of-a-kind-piece of your very own.  It’s easy:

We’ll put out loads of safe, clean, washed glass bits at your table. Choose your favourite bits to make whatever design you imagine, glue them on to your clear blank piece, and that’s it! We’ll fire your piece in our kiln, and have it ready for pickup in about a week. The activity requires no tools and is suitable for children and adults. The cost of the activity is based on the pieces you create.

Workshop prices per item:
3″ piece – $12
plant stake – $16
4″ piece – $20
3″ x 8″ rectangle – $32
5″ piece – $32

(all prices include tax)

Take-home Junk-de-Verre workshop kit:

Drop in, contact us by phone (call or text 902-791-1171) or on FB Messenger to arrange rental of a take-home kit.

We have created a 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.

Pricing is the same as in-store.
Minimum purchase of two pieces to take home a kit.
All prices include tax:
3″ piece – $12
plant stake – $16
4″ piece – $20
3″ x 8″ rectangle – $32
5″ piece – $32

Group Workshops

Due to COVID-19 public health restrictions, group workshops are not available at this time.

Larger groups (up to 30 people) can be accommodated in our large back room by appointment.  We can book after-hours appointments for groups over 15 people.

Call us at 902-791-1171 to check availability.

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.

The room is also available for meetings and other events at an hourly or daily rate.  Contact us for details.
