My studio is located in Railspur Alley on Granville Island in the centre of Vancouver BC Canada.   Granville Island, formerly an industrial area is now a home for arts, crafts and culture.   Many artists' studios, galleries, theaters, Emily Carr University, Arts Umbrella, and a public market are found here. In Railspur Alley, you will find 13 other artists' studios to visit and the Off The Tracks Bistro for a delicious lunch or just coffee.  

Katherine Mclean studio is located half way down Railspur Ally, on the south side, immediately opposite the Off The Tracks Bistro.  My studio is a working studio, that is to say a space where I work regularly as well as sell my work.  As I work in clay sculpture and encaustic (hot wax) painting,  many folks drop by to see what is new, what is just out of the kiln and to watch work in progress.   I open the studio to visitors regularly and this summer my Open Studio hours will be Wednesday to Sunday from 11 am to 5:00pm.  I hope you'll drop by.
