Studio & Showroom
Dragonfly Arts on Broadway is a unique and eclectic shop brimming with artwork, fine craft and jewellery as well as being home to five working artists' studios, all in the heart of historic downtown Orangeville, Ontario. This is where you will find the lampwork bead studio I share with Joan Hope, owner of Dragonfly Arts. If you make your way to the very back of the shop, down the long narrow hallway, you might find one of us working away in the corner! This is where you will find the most extensive selection of my lampwork bead jewellery and gift items such as pate knives, bookmarks and key rings. Check their website for current hours.
Drop in for a demo!
I aim to be in the studio making beads on Fridays and Saturdays from 10am - 3pm. Other days you may find me by chance. The showroom is open the same days and hours as Dragonfly so you can explore and shop even if I'm not there. Call ahead if you want to make sure I'm in my studio and making beads. Once you see how a glass bead is made you will have a better appreciation for the amount of time that goes into making even the tiniest of beads!
If you can't wait to see a live demo you can watch a video of me making a bead!!! Lampwork Bead Demonstration!
