Red Boat Studio is Karole Doucette's studio ("and occasionally my husband who does some woodworking!")

Located at 2035 Eastleigh Lane, North Vancouver - open most days but please email to make an appointment so you can safely browse around the studio or have your purchase wrapped to be given at a safe distance. You can also shop on the Red Boat Studio website.

Marshall-Inman Gallery and Studios
Marshall-Inman Gallery and Studios is the home of Glenys Marshall-Inman's ceramics and Basil Marshall-Inman's woodworking.
"We live remotely on a small llama farm overlooking the Juan de Fuca Strait on the SW coast of Vancouver Island. The most loved pieces of equipment in the studio are my old wooden Leach kick wheel and the wood burning stove, especially in winter! A huge asset is having our Gallery attached to the studios. This allows us to meet personally with customers and supporters. We sell exclusively through the Gallery."
