Student Information

Please arrive a few minutes before class starts.

We're located at 131 Loretta Ave North and there's free parking in front of our building.

In preparation for the class, please fill in the online waiver located here. Every participant must fill out this form so if someone is joining you, please forward the link to them. If you’re not able to complete the form online, we will have a printed version at the studio.

We recommend that you wear clothing made of natural fibres such as cotton, preferably long sleeves, pants and closed toed shoes. Long hair should be tied back. If you'd like to take notes during class, please bring a notebook. Masks are no longer provincially mandated, however we encourage every participant to wear a mask during their class.

Due to the nature of glass, students will have to return to pick up their finished pieces after they have been cooled slowly in a kiln (annealed). You will be able to pick up your glass objects by appointment or on any subsequent Saturday between 12pm and 5pm

Classes run with a minimum of 2 students and a maximum of 4 students.

If you're interested in a class that is not scheduled on our calendar or would like to know more about private lessons or a group class just for you and your friends, email us to let us know.

If the class you were hoping to sign up for is full, please fill out the waitlist form here and we will get back to you if a spot opens up.

Flameworking is open to anyone (16+). Students and torch time participants under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. 

If you have any questions, please email lorettastudiosandgallery@gmail.com

Covid safety protocols:

Guidelines from the government and Ottawa Public Health inform our Covid-19 procedures and ensure a safe studio environment for all. Our instructors will guide you through our safety procedures when you arrive for your class or lesson, please comply with their instructions. Our staff and instructors are fully vaccinated and we hope you are too.

Although mask mandates were lifted in Ontario on March 21st, we encourage every participant to wear a mask for the duration of their studio visit.

Our classes will have no more than 4 students in them so that we can ensure a safe distance between you. Fewer students also means that you will have plenty of individual attention from the teacher!
