The Art Room

The Art Room & Ceramic Studio, a home based studio, has been in operation since 2000. The well equipped contemporary studio is built in a century old barn and provides a lovely atmosphere to work in. There is loads of inspiration via the animals and scenery to enhance your creativity.
Paint Your Own Ceramics has been added to the studio and is a complement to the adult and children’s drawing and painting classes that are offered on a weekly basis. As a Graduate of Ontario College of Art and Design, with a major in drawing and painting, I look forward to working with you and your children.

In both of the classes I share the principals of drawing and painting while allowing the student to develop their own style. Please contact for information on class times and prices .Generally they happen on Monday and Wednesday and run for 6 to 8 weeks. They can vary to accommodate the students.

Paint Your Own Ceramics

  • is suitable for all ages and skill levels
  • bring your baby, kids or pets to create a memory plate of their hands, feet and paw prints
  • the bisque pieces are already fired and ready for you to paint
  • Stoneware workshops are now available – oven to table safe – practical – beautiful
  • Social Networking with Ceramics. Book the room for a Bachelorette, Birthday or “Girls Night Out”.
  • is a fun relaxing way to connect with family and friends
  • Corporate or business parties find doing ceramics on the farm is a great way to relax, connect and be creative. Have it catered or bring your own food makes it extra special. Contact me for more details.
Pick the piece of pottery. They range from home decor, practical & useful kitchen and garden items to children’s boxes, banks, and figurines.

Plan your design and choose your colours. Make it as simple or as involved as you want. There are many idea books and tools for you to use such as stamps, silk screens, stencils etc.

Paint your ceramic with professional glazes that will then be kiln fired. There are many colours and finishes (like high gloss or satin), crystal glazes, and others that mix and flow into unique patterns. They kiln fire to a food safe finish. Or paint figurines with ceramic acrylics and top coat with a spray glaze.
