Visit us in our beautiful all-electric glass studio at Artscape Wychwood Barns

We're proud to be operating an all-electric glass studio here at Artscape Wychwood Barns – doing our part to create a green economy.

If you haven't been to 'The Barns' yet, you're in for a treat. This 100-year-old TTC streetcar repair facility, now converted to a multi-use arts hub, plays home to art markets, food festivals, live theatre, and the much-loved Farmers' Market (Saturday mornings). The Barns' restored brick buildings are surrounded by a landscaped park with community learning gardens, a sand volleyball court and a stellar childrens' play area.

TTC Directions

We are a short distance from St. Clair West station; from there, take the 512 St. Clair streetcar west to either the Wychwood Ave or Christie St. stop. Walk south 2 blocks to The Barns.

Directions by Car

Wychwood Barns was designed as an environmentally conscious community space: there is little parking in order to encourage people to take alternate modes of transportation. If you come by car, we recommend parking in a Green P lot. Street parking can be difficult to find on weekends. Pay close attention to parking signs so that you don't get ticketed.
