Join us as we navigate the unknown and getting lost together!

Anyone who registered for any of our workshops over March Break can attest to how quickly life can change from day to day!  We really appreciate the support and understanding we received from Registrants (and Participants) of workshops we WERE able to host, and those that we had to postpone during these challenging times.

While some of the workshops were dependent on a "hands-on" approach, we're currently looking to expand the availability of others to an online format.  We were able to do this recently with Gordon MacDonald's "Glazing Demo and Talk" in which guests were invited to participate in an interactive live streaming of the event using the Zoom App

**If you weren't able to join us for this class but would have liked to, we are suggesting a "pay-what-you-can" $10 donation or more, and we can send the link directly to you, to watch the entire class at your leisure. Get in touch for details.**

Gordon MacDonald live streaming his Glazing Demo and Talk Online via Zoom to audiences across Canada!

We were amazed by how much we were able to do with some studio lighting and a cell phone!  An unexpected advantage to the online format was being able to share the workshop with guests as far away as Saskatoon and San Francisco!  

We're constantly adapting to ongoing changes in our daily lives, and while we navigate the "New Normal" we'll be developing more of these workshops and ideas in the near future!

What can I do to help?!?

Good Question! There are many ways for you to help our small business and others too, without costing you anything but some time. Here are some ideas below:


Yes--ish....For the time being, gallery visits will be limited to scheduled appointments (preferably) on Mondays and Wednesdays (10 am - 4 pm), and will mainly consist of pick ups and deliveries to individuals.  We will be relying heavily on our online presence, and the social media community.  DOOR STEP DELIVERIES IN HRM are free and contact-less.


You can follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.  Please LIKE and SHARE our posts with friends and family to get the word out there!  Comments welcome.  We love to hear from you!
