  • Went in with our daughter & grand daughters & stayed to watch them work on a Spirit Bear. The girls were absolutely fascinated and loved watching it being shaped in the heat and blown by the artisan. ...  more »
  • Roberts pieces are full of colour, creativity ...very unique. Did you know you can even have a piece made to keep ashes of your loved one &/or pet??  more »
  • My husband and I did a class where we made a glass ornament. We had so much fun learning how to make it, and being in the shop. We will definitely do this again.  more »

  • My parents and I traveled to Parksville to hunt for treasures on the beach. The information center told us that Robert was the individual who started the hidden treasures on the beach and if we did not find anything we should go to his studio. We had the honor of meeting Robert. He was an extremely nice gentleman, talking with us and showing us different pieces. The studio makes glass pieces that remains of your loved one can be mixed into. I had been looking for someone I could trust with some of my beloved dog. Robert is definitely that individual, I will be working with him to design the perfect memory piece. Ignore the negative review, I am not an employee, I am a tourist and I highly recommend you check out this studio to see the beautiful work.
  • I took a few lessons here with my girlfriend and we both really enjoyed the experience. Our instructor encouraged us to challenge ourselves and learn which I appreciated. We will definitely visit again.
  • Great place....neat artisan with the ability to talk to visitors. Close up viewing of artists working with the glass. Unique one of a kind glass wear / art pieces. Calm energy.
  • A beautiful place to shop for unique art glass from the "Father of Art Glass". We spent time talking, and appreciating the art with my family. Would be interested in taking a class one day!
  • You need to stop here. When we arrived the team was preparing for Held's 40 years in business. We watched the entire process of one of the hearts being created which was very interactive. We picked up a few small gifts, but I wanted to buy some of the larger pieces so badly. I was lucky enough to me Robert Held and had a really nice conversation with him. We'll be back.
