Open 11 AM – 5 PM Wednesday – Sunday
This hidden gem can be found at the end of the sidewalk, or through the neighbouring studios (Main Street and the stone carvers). The double doors of the stone building form the back wall of the courtyard with two additions completing the square. You’ll see a taller L-shaped wing bracketing the charming cottage-like individual studio – originally the office, circa 1945, to the apple-pie filling processing plant.
The heritage designated stone building’s floor of 2,000-square-feet is separated into multiple studios. With eleven-foot ceilings and partial divider walls, light spills from the original 8-foot-high multi-paned windows in the surrounding three walls.
Two workshops house three-dimensional groups: the stone sculptors and wood carvers. Each are the complete width of their wing and feature natural light from both the courtyard and laneway, and ten-foot ceilings. Seasonally, the stone sculptors work beside the lane.
Residencies may be available. This is a great opportunity for an emerging artist.
