We are hosting an introductory hot glass class this Saturday, the 13th! We have a couple spots remaining. The class runs from 10am to 12pm and acts as a primer for working with hot glass. We perform a demo to show the process and offer insights and tips then you get hands on time with the material. You will get to make something as a keepsake of your first time with molten glass! Give us an email to book. Class is $90+GST.
Stay tuned for more class openings. Happy 2018!

Ryan (SUPER ASTROBEAR) has a new EP out inspired by the studio's inflatable space whale, the Saturnian. The EP began as a sound installation for the first installation at Beakerhead 2016 in Calgary, Alberta. Ryan produced a single track while his brother, Nathan Fairweather, and his friend Aaron Warkentin, also produced music for the installation. Throughout the year Ryan began building a small body of music based on the original track. In 2017 the studio installed the Saturnian at Telus Spark, in Calgary, and Ryan had a few more tracks to expand on the installation. Now, this EP has a total of 7 songs you can listen to through Soundcloud or purchase directly from Bee Kingdom. Click here or the album picture to enjoy the album!
October 24, 2017: Lecture at the Alberta College of Art and Design. Ryan and Phillip share their experiences starting Bee Kingdom and how they learned to market their work and promote themselves. Enjoy!
