Lampworking Studio News

Effective Today (Monday, November 7), Happy Hour Torching (2 hours for the price of 1) will now be for soft glass only.

Happy Hour is every Monday and Thursday, from 5 pm to 9 pm, and gets you two hours of torching for the price of one. Happy Hour Torching is hosted by an experienced lampworker who can answer your questions. Excellent for beginners and novices. More experienced lampworkers will enjoy the camaraderie and exchange of ideas that come from torching in a shared environment.

This event is popular, please call ahead (416 701-1373) or email to book space.

In addition, we have added a new program for folks who wish to work Borosilicate glass in the studio. Boro workers can book in advance (24 hours notice is required) and a separate kiln will be programmed for annealing/garaging and Boro workers will have a choice of Mega or Midrange Torch. (If you have specific colour-related requirements for the kiln program - please give us 24 hours notice.)

Mega - Boro torch time is $20 per hour, or $90 for a 5-hour card.

The Midrange torch (which is a much larger and faster torch) is $30 per hour, or $125 for a 5-hour card (for either Boro or Soft glass)
