What is “Open Studio”

During open studio hours you can come in and pick from any of our available projects and someone will be available to help you with as much (or little) guidance as you need/prefer.

Saturday open studios are family friendly from 10:30-3:00. After that it’s grownups only please! From 3:00 – 9:00 pm we have our wine bar open and do sampler flights, glasses and bottles. For open studio our latest start time is 7pm.

We are conveniently located in Highland, Illinois just minutes from I-70.  We are close to everything, yet maintain a small, hometown feel.  Our convenient location is easy-to-find and a great meeting place for friends all over the Metro St. Louis and surrounding areas.   

You’ll find us on the historic square in Highland at 821 Main Street. Our studio is located in a cute, historic building that was originally a general store. People love our rustic, cozy space with its original tin ceilings.

We have a great view of the park and are a quick walk from dining, shopping and the Lory theater. Stop in and make a day of it!
