How long do the workshops take?

  • All workshop times are estimated based on full class enrolment.
  • If fewer people enrol, the class will generally take less time.
  • Once you have completed your object you are welcome to stay and watch other students but you are also free to go.

What if our work breaks?

Playing With Fire focuses on delivering one of a kind glass working experiences and as such we consider our workshops to be our product. However, whether we like it or not... sometimes glass breaks.
  • In the rare event that your object becomes cosmetically damaged during or after the workshop, you will receive your object as well as the demo piece created at the beginning of the workshop.
  • In the rare event that your object is entirely broken, you will receive a remake created by one of our instructors.

How do we pick up our work?

  • All of the pick up info can be found here.

What and where is the waiver?

  • Your safety is our greatest concern - it should be yours too!  This is why students are required to fill out a standard waiver before each workshop. 
  • You can download the waiver here.

How does the GroupOn promotion work?

  • GroupOn vouchers can only be applied to GroupOn promotional workshops.
  • Each voucher is to make TWO wine bottle stoppers. You can come as a pair and make one each OR come on your own and make two!
  • You cannot apply the value of your GroupOn voucher to another workshop.
  • If your voucher expires you can put the value of the voucher (145$) toward the full price of a Wine Bottle Stopper workshop (290$ as advertised on GroupOn) and you will pay the remaining balance. Please email minna@playingwithfire.ca to make this arrangement.
