Overview

More
Glass studio La Meduse is a glassblowing studio located in Iles-de-la-Madeleine since 1985. One of the oldest studio in Quebec province, La Meduse has three glass artists: Francois Turbide, master glassblower, founder of the studio and glass artist for over 30 years, Sophie Bourgeois, glass artist for 18 years and Catherine Chevrier-Turbide, daughter of Mr. Turbide and glass artist herself for two years. At the studio La Meduse, you can watch the artisans at work, share their reality and experience their creation space for a moment (and for free!). La Meduse glass studio also includes a boutique area showing the works of art of the three artists and an art gallery showing the creations of 10 local artists.

We visited Le Meduse three years, and had to go back again when we recently visited Les Iles again. They have beautiful pieces of glass work, and very unique.
