Opened in the last month, Verbeek Glass Studio is a new working and teaching kiln glass studio run by local glass artist Layne Verbeek.
Located in Leslieville, the studio is a kiln-based glass studio versus a glass blowing or lamp (torch) working studio.
Here, a wide range of glass can be made using the kilns and other equipment in either fusing, kiln forming or plaster/silica casting methods.
The studio offers a wide range of fun classes for all ages, 5+! No experience necessary!
Its services include:
A wide range of fused and kiln formed glass workshops for adults
Classes for kids starting from age 5
Open Studio memberships for those wanting to continue making glass at their own pace
Bullseye glass art and supplies
A gallery space that features works by local artists in clay, photography and painting as well as glass sculptures by Layne Verbeek
