Our Mission
All of our workshops are geared towards absolute beginners, no experience necessary. We demonstrate the process and guide everyone through the experience individually by giving you the tasks we are confident you, as a beginner, can safely handle. This includes choosing and applying your own colours, blowing and/or shaping the glass with tools, as well as tooling the vessel lip open in selected workshops. Bringing the wonderful, mysterious art of glassblowing to a wide range of ages and abilities is our passion!
Upon arrival at the historic Artscape Wychwood Barns building, please find one of the main entrances. They are located on Christie Street at the West side of the building and on Wychwood Avenue at the East. From there, make your way through the red arch, upstairs to the glass studio located on the second floor of barn 3, where you will be greeted by our talented artists.

Before beginning our workshop we will collect waivers for every participant, take payment for any outstanding balances, go over health and safety procedures and give a demonstration so you can see how each and every step of the creative process will unfold, including your role in the making of your own glass keepsake.

After the demo, we invite each individual participant to create their glass work one by one. The names of the participants are written down and numbered. The work is put away in a row so that we can match you with the piece you made.

Your glass work will be placed into a cooling down oven (annealer) to take it to room temperature overnight. Work will be available for pick up starting the following Wednesday after 5 pm and within two weeks' time from there. Pick up information can be found here:

Duration of workshops depends on what you want to make, your punctuality, and the physical abilities of your group members. Duration quoted is a reflection of the maximum time we expect the workshop to take. If we finish early and with enough time, we are happy to demonstrate another object for the group, free of charge. The price for the group workshop remains the same and you may purchase the demo item for $35.

Please note: You are not paying an hourly rate, you are paying for a per person experience.

How to register for a private event.
By reading and completing this form you will be well on your way to booking your event!
Once you complete and submit this form, we will contact you with available dates and invoice you for the deposit (typically 50% of the told workshop cost) which is payable via PayPal, cheque, eTransfer or credit card.
At Playing With Fire we are happy to offer private workshops for groups of all sizes. The larger the class size, the better the savings. All prices are calculated using a tier system. When you select your object you will see which tier it is. See the chart below to determine the cost of your workshop before taxes. You are not paying an hourly rate, you are paying for a per person experience.

Please note, due to the size of our studio space and the nature of the workshops, groups of more than 30 will need to be split into two separate groups.

Food and Drink Policy
You are welcome to bring food, drinks and alcohol to the studio for your event. All alcohol MUST remain inside the studio for the duration of the event.

Pick up Policy
Group workshop items are boxed and labeled with individual participants names. Please assign one person in your group to be responsible for pick up.
