Sparkles n' Sawdust Studio is a small business that is locally owned and operated by husband and wife team, Jacquelyn Miccolis and Alan Pippy. This creative oasis is a life-long dream that was built through alot of hard-work and unwavering determination! 


To inspire and spread the joy of creativity in a friendly, inclusive and supportive environment. We believe that there is something truly magical that happens - when people from all walks of life come together and create something that wasn't there before. We believe that art is for EVERYONE and enjoy empowering others to discover their endless potential.

Sparkles n' Sawdust Studio proudly supports The Canadian Mental Health Association, through their Mosaics for Mental Health Program. We truly love helping others, but please note that we are a small business and not a non-profit or charitable organization. Therefore, we do not receive any form of government funding or support. We truly wish that we could accept donation requests or host workshops free of charge, but unfortunately - this just isn't possible.



While at Sparkles n' Sawdust Studio, you might smile so much that your face hurts and laugh to the point of tears. We don't take life too seriously around here and enjoy helping you de-stress, while you escape the stress of everyday life! ♥


In addition to our public programming we enjoy hosting private parties and team building events
