After moving to town in 2005, glass artisan Melody Jewitt was renting studio time in Merrickville, Ontario. While at work, the Sheridan Institute–trained craftswoman discovered a kindred glassblowing spirit in the studio's owner, Bronwen McKnight, who has since retired. The two forged a friendship and artistic alliance that eventually became a business venture as well—their Ottawa studio dubbed Flo Glassblowing. The women used the studio to produce new work, continue their ongoing experiments with glass catcher's-mitt prototypes, and showcase their best designs. They also offer visitors a variety of workshops tailored to all ages, in which they reveal the secrets of flameworking, fusing, and casting that enable students to execute their own small glass pieces. In addition to the workshops, the studio creates a wide variety of custom glass blown products.

During her more than 20 years as an interior designer and a teacher at Algonquin College, Elaine Comeau made sure to continuously sharpen her already formidable skills in the visual arts. Colour theory and perspective drawing are just a couple of the various mediums she’s taught at art schools and in private lessons. Now the owner of her own studio, Comeau again welds her experience as an educator to her talent for illustration. As with Fellini films and lectures on Thomas Pynchon, anyone over age 3 is welcome: Elaine's group, private, and semiprivate courses are all geared toward different age ranges. Better-half-free visitors can meet one another at singles workshops, which combine paint and blank canvases with music and a relaxed atmosphere. Children's art classes send celebrants home with their own crafts.

The imaginative makeup gurus of On Scene Fx lend their transformative powers to the silver screen, but the company originally sprang from an unexpected source: medical training programs. On Scene's artists are so skilled at moulage, or fake wounds, that they are called upon to layer actors in gore to give trainees the most realistic learning experience possible.

When not applying on-screen or medical makeup, the artists train staffers at Halloween stores, and they even hold classes to teach laypeople how to work latex, incorporate fake blood, and blend paints. Customers can also commission the On Scene Fx artists for help with their own costumes.
