Innovative glass and award winning jewelry

At TANK Jewelry & Beads, customers come from all over the world to browse fine hand-made jewelry. Started in Toronto, the studio has made the move to beautiful Stratford! The online shop features the work of Jill Cribbin. Here's a short video showing the original shop and the work that goes in to all the flameworked jewelry .

 

The Distillery shop is now owned and run by the talented goldsmith, Leif Benner.  Jill's work is still fully available at the shop! You are invited to shop, learn and enjoy the unique studio gallery located in one of Toronto’s most popular destinations, the Historic Distillery District.  As the former Gooderham and Worts Distillery, it's Canada's finest collection of Victorian era industrial architecture.

 

Classes

Whether you’re a complete newbie or you’ve been at it for a while, the exciting art of working with hot glass and making flameworked beads is our specialty.   Students are shown many techniques, building a solid foundation of skills or helping to refine and advance student’s current repertoire.  Students will be able to create their own designs based on what is learned.  Typically beginner students make between 10-20 beads in a one day class (6 hrs).  Classes are all hands on and move back and forth during the session between demos and practice time for students.  Please contact us for further details and bookings.
