With an active studio life, Fireweed Glass Studio is open from 11-4pm daily, including Sundays and holidays. Nestled in a corner of the Elk Run Industrial Park, we have a small store front gallery and visitors are encouraged to drop in and take a peek at work for sale. There is often an artist blowing glass, so your chances to see them in action are good. Feel free to drop in anytime!

Due to hiking trails being closed (due to bears) and a rainier day, my husband and I decided to check out Fireweed and we still talk about it. We were fortunate enough to watch one of the artists at work and it was enthralling to watch the process of a party glass being made. There were chairs to sit down... More

I had a little problem finding the studio. I followed Google maps. Google maps took me down the southern east/west leg of Bow Meadows Crescent and said I was there at when I was adjacent to 110 Bow Meadows Crescent. It was not clear where 111 was. Typically, the odd numbers are on one side and even numbers on another.... More

We drove out to the studio on a rainy day and it was well worth the "effort". If you like talking to the real artists behind the work, this is it. Lots of great works and styles to choose from.

During this time the artist shared the process and allowed me to ask any questions I had. It was a really cool experience to see how their art is created from beginning to... More

I just popped in. The place was hard to find. It is down at the end of the street so ask directions if needed. Take to artisans ahead of time to make arrangement so see the work in progress.

The people working in the studio had a sit in some chairs and gave us an education on what they do and how they do it. Lovely pieces to purchase from various artists.
