Old Town Glassworks is a workers cooperative that has been creating beautiful recycled glassware from rescued bottles on the shores of Great Slave Lake since 1994. We use original northern patterns by local artists. Each piece is cut, polished, stenciled and sand-blasted by hand. Our giftshop is brimming with our famous northern glasses, mugs, lamps, magnets, soap pumps & much more. We also offer Custom Engraving for Logos, Awards, & Gifts.
Join us in Old Town and express your creative side, create memories with your friends and make your very own unique and eco-friendly souvenir, sandblasted with our unique northern designs
We produce a large variety of amazing glassware, ranging from functional pieces such as our classic tumblers to fashionable items such as our glass jewlery and much more.
We are a collaborative bunch here at Old Town Glassworks and that starts with our company identity as a Worker's Co-operative. We love to work with others and always welcome new friends.
Old Town Bikeworks is a seasonal bike shop that rescues unwanted bicycles, and fixes them up so that they are useful again. We then sell, trade or rent these bikes. We also provide a bike repair service. We always accept donations of unwanted bikes year round.
Get your bike fixed by our trusty bicycle mechanics and rest assured that the work is done properly, at a fair price and in a timely manner.
We restore donatated bikes and sell them for very reasonable prices, for those looking for an even better deal we invite you to come and barter with us.
We also rent out our bicycles so that visitors and those looking for temporary use of a bike can enjoy our city at their own pace on a reclaimed bike.
Two hours of assitance from a glass artist, all the necesary materials, and best of all, a gorgeous recycled or commerical item of your choice to adorn with your favourite northern image. Participants can make additional items at a discounted price.
You will receive a demo in our glass studio of the polishing and grinding process. Then you will choose from hundreds of designs and sandblast your item yourself!
Between two and eight people can participate in each workshop. Special arrangements can be made for larger groups.

Studio Time is an opportunity for those who have already completed a workshop to work independently in the studio. When you book, please indicate that you will be on using studio time. If this is your first time ever booking studio time be prepared to indicate when (approximate date is fine) you participated in a previous workshop during the payment process. Many people who take our workshops decide they’d like to make other pieces as gifts for family or special events, such as weddings or the holiday season. Returning clients can book studio time at a rate of $20/hour per person. You can use our glassware at our special workshop pricing or bring your own glassware to sandblast at a rate of $3 per item.
Workshops are offered 7 days per week, 2-4 times per day. Ages 3 -103. Lots of kid friendly designs available. Ask about our Birthday Parties! Bookings can be made over the phone at (867) 669-7654 or for a more automated experience, through our Bookings page accessible through our booking buttons.
Dear Customers booking Workshops and Studio-time,
If you plan to etch your own bottles they will need to be cut, ground and polished, please bring them in several days prior to your scheduled workshop or studio-time. Thank you for your understanding!
Looking forward to having a blast with you!
