Bavin Glassworks reopens

Six months after closing, glass studio reopens.

Submitted by Bavin Glassworks

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; or by phone;

250-342-6819, or check out the info on

our website;

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.

If you have any questions email info@ or call 250-342-5902.
