It’s been six months since we closed
our doors back in October 2018. It’s hard
to believe the time has flown by so fast!
Over the last couple of months, Ryan
has been working on re-envisioning Bavin
Glassworks. He was successful in securing
the studio space of the existing business
and has been renovating and reorganizing
the space to make it a working studio.
Although the space is only half the size of
what the business used to be, it will still be
very functional along with a small gallery
to show and sell his glass and photography.
The studio will be open to the public again
for May long weekend with an opening
event and studio sale to celebrate a new beginning!
Many of you already know Shawna,
who will continue to be the studio manager,
and will show her amazing porcelain
work as well. Pat will be showing his paintings
of course, which are always evolving
and continue to reflect his inspiration with
mountain culture, forest healing, spirituality,
and colour theory.
In March, Pat joined his youngest son
Marc on a business trip to Japan. While
Marc was working, Pat was exploring the
country, particularly the practice of Shinrin-
Yoku, or Forest Therapy. Pat has been
working as a practitioner of Forest Therapy
for a while now, and will be offering
guided workshops throughout the Spring,
Summer, and Fall. If you are interested in
Forest Therapy, feel free to contact him by
email; firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone;
250-342-6819, or check out the info on
our website; bavinglass.com
Ryan is very excited to get back into
the studio and start work on new ideas in
glass. The studio will continue to be a hub
of creativity into the future. Whether it’s
glass, photography, paintings, ceramics, or
jewelry, there will be an abundance of work
shown with opportunities to see artists at
work as well. Be sure to drop in to check
out what we are up to!
We will be open Thursdays through
Sundays to start out, as well as the holiday
Monday for the May long weekend. We
are located on the south side of our old
location, so you will need to walk around
the building to access the studio/gallery, at
4884 Athalmer Hwy.
