We are Richmond Hill's Premier DIY studio, with the most selection and creative options available. Glaze Craze, is a fun and relaxing environment to explore your creative side through pottery painting, glass fusing, clay building, canvas and glass painting. No reservations needed (except for parties or lessons) and no experience required! Great for ALL Ages!
Try pottery painting (we have a large selection of Made in Canada items, including some hand thrown on the pottery wheel right here on site).
Paint a pre-made ceramic item. You can use our ceramic paint which is then baked in our kiln (makes them shiny and food safe, but takes 1 week to pick up). OR use acrylic paint and take it home the same day (decorative use only).
All ceramic paints are lead free, water soluable (washes off clothes) and non-toxic.
Have you tried Glass fusing before? Its easier then painting and has limitless possibilities. We have the most advanced walk in glass studio in Canada, carrying most of the colours available on the market with many pre-cut options to make it even easier for you to create.
Fused Glass is the art of stacking glass to create a design, and then we fuse it together in our kiln. Items that can be made include plates/bowls, sun catchers, coasters, night lights, jewellery, ornaments, etc.
Most items are ready within 1 week and are food safe depending on how they are constructed (thicker pieces are stronger then thinner).
Create your own item from scratch with raw clay. We offer walk in clay building (see walk in studio link above for details), or classes (see "for you" or "for kids" links). Our skilled instructors, including the owner Karin Lickers, can teach you everything you need to know.
All items can be made food safe (depends how you build it). Paint approx 2 weeks after construction, and pick up is 1 week later.
We have pottery wheels too!
Canvas Painting, is far from being a new concept, but we have reinvented it to give you a fun way to relax and have fun, while making fabulous art for your home.
Whether you walk in studio the studio to paint any time we are open, or take a workshop for some instruction, you can take home a great piece of art. We have adult and child options and variety of different sized canvas to choose from. All canvas include all supplies in the price, and you can take home your finished piece the same day!
Glass painting lets you customize your home even more, allowing you to decorate items that you use every day.
Paint a pre-made piece of glass ware in store, and you bake it at home in your oven (ours is too hot!), and it will become dishwasher resistent. Items available include wine glasses, martini glasses, small bowls, beer/rock/shot glasses, vases, ornaments and slumped wine bottles.
Our attention to service and quality has made us an industry leader. At Glaze Craze, the customer always comes first, and we constantly strive to exceed your expectations.
The Glaze Craze goal is to create a relaxed, fun atmosphere where everyone has a great time and feels comfortable. We help the “creatively challenged” find their creative side. We want to provide assistance and artistic opportunities to those who consider themselves artistically challenged, so everyone can be an artist in their own right.
