Englee is all fired up with Glacier Glass!

The fishing Town of Englee is quickly becoming an artisan retreat and those who love things that are handmade. At the Town Hall one can view more than 100 locally hooked rugs at their exhibition open Monday to Friday from 9 AM until 4 PM. They also created a partnership with the French Shore Interpretation Centre, where a local resident worked and produced tapestry panels for a travelling exhibit commemorating the Treaty of Utrecht of 1713. 

Englee is all fired up! The creation of the newly formed Glacier Glass has given the Town renewed life through job creation and new economic development. A number of workers have learned and are mastering the art form by creating original and authentic glass art pieces that are indeed quintessentially Newfoundland & Labrador.

Artisans carefully handcraft coasters, tea light holders, pendants, plates, platters, ornaments, cheese trays, cuff-links, icebergs and an array of decorative items. These are unique and perfect presents for special occasions, such as birthdays, anniversaries and holidays such as Halloween or Christmas.

Supporting local business is key to building a stronger economy and sustaining rural communities. We can grow with your help! Drop by their studio and shop at the lower level of the Englee Municipal Building, visit their Facebook Page at Glacier Glass for regular updates and/or call 1-709-866-2711 for more information.

Englee also has a heritage home, wildlife and amazing walking trails. It neighbours Roddickton-Bide Arm and Conche, making the Northern Peninsula East another place to add to your travels when experiencing the Great Northern Peninsula.
