Studio Update, March 19:                                                                                                                            

With growing global concerns around COVID-19, we at Fire Escape wanted to provide you with a response and commitment moving forward. The health, safety, and well-being of our guests is top priority and we are following the lead of Canadian public health authorities at this important time. 

It is with a sense of great regret that we are announcing that we will temporarily suspend accepting "walk in" traffic at our studio. We are keeping our hours as posted for kit pick ups, product viewing and for people to pick up their finished items. We highly recommend our take-home options (CPR Kits) so that you can enjoy ceramic art in the comfort of your home. Please call or email us for more information or to book a kit.

As a small, family-run art studio, we always appreciate your business. If you are interested in supporting us during this anticipated slow time and decline in visitors, we invite you to purchase a gift certificate to use at a future date. We will be offering a complimentary studio pass for every $25 spent on a gift certificate.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
