Contact us by phone (call or text 902-791-1171) or on FB Messenger to arrange rentals of take-home kits. We are also offering local delivery & pickup of take-home kits. Our shop is closed until further notice due to COVID-19 prevention efforts. Pickups by appointment only.
Take home Junk-de-Verre workshop kit:
We have created new “take home kits” 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. Take as long as you want to make your masterpiece! After you’ve returned the pieces to us for kiln-firing, we’ll make arrangements for pickup or delivery of your finished pieces.
This activity has three steps:
1. Rent a kit, take it home and design your art.
2. Get your finished art back to our store to be kiln-fired.
3. Collect your fused glass masterpiece.
NOTE: Due to COVID-19 social distancing efforts, we can only rent a kit directly to a single household at this time. We cannot rent kits to be dropped off to others, because of the need to collect kits after completion and deliver finished art.
We are currently arranging local deliveries and pickups in a safe, “social distancing” way if you or someone you know is stuck at home. Contact us if you’d like to arrange a kit delivery to someone in the local area.
“Junk-de-Verre” DIY Fused Glass Workshop
Make a one-of-a-kind-piece of your very own. It’s easy:
Choose your favourite bits of coloured glass from our tables, glue them on to a 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. 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.
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)
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.
