  • I am passionate about Robert Held’s Glass hearts. They are simply stunning. I collect them in various shades and keep them in a bowl. He also makes a variety of paper weights, bowls, and other fine pi...  more »
  • I broke an exterior light globe from our driveway lamp. Took and unbroken one in and asked Robert Held if they could match it up. It was not a simple plain glass globe so i did not expect much. 2 week...  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.

Where to stay in Parksville

Most accommodations in the town center look over the Strait of Georgia. Here, along Island Highway, you'll find primarily chain hotels, resorts, and motels offering clean and comfortable lodgings within walking distance of the town's amenities. If you want to enjoy the region's pristine nature, you can find more interesting accommodations just east down the highway, around the border of Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park. Beach resorts with swimming pools, quaint holiday cottages, and secluded forest retreats provide easy access to both the beach and the national park.
