The Blue Door Studio, a sweet drive north from Gimli, features two glass artists in one convenient location. This modern lakefront studio offers original/eclectic stained and fused glass and a creative mix of mixed-media paintings, photography, fibre arts, jewelry and hand-built clay items as well as custom-designed pieces. These friendly neighbors are motivated by wind, water and sun and their styles easily complement one another.
Each year, Marlene Van Helden and neighbour, Gwen Harp, work diligently to ensure the Blue Door Studio is a feast for visitor eyes. Drop by for a chat and refreshments while you tour the two-storey studio at # 89 LochWoods Drive, 3 kms. north of Camp Morton. Visitors are welcome to enjoy their coffee on the yard’s lakefront decks, while they plan their next stop!
We are looking forward to seeing you! (WAVE Tour - September long weekend only)

Cat'ch yer Eye Stained Glass
Comfortably nestled among the trees at Willow Creek, just a few kilometres south of Gimli, you will find Cat'ch Yer Eye Stained Glass. Established by Claude and Carol Hébert in 2005, it serves a small but active glass artisan niche in the area. Apart from creating large and small commissioned stained glass, fused glass, mosaics and sandblasted pieces, they also provide instructional classes.
Their talents come from a lifetime of creativity in music, crafts and various forms of art using assorted mediums. “We’ve grown up with so many artistic and talented family members, art has always been part of our life. With not only fun and encouraging mentorship, art has given us a very therapeutic experience! We can’t live without it!”
Glass allows them to capture the beauty of nature in time-honoured traditional works with delicacy, elegance, vivid colours and expressive textures in the age old art of stained glass. You're invited to visit as you’re sure to find something that will, "Cat'ch Yer Eye"!
Open year round by appointment.
