Shop + Studio 
(updated April 28 2018)John_Matthews.htmlBeth_Matthews.htmlshapeimage_2_link_0shapeimage_2_link_1

You will not find the word "shopudio" in the dictionary. So what is it? The structure includes a woodworking and carving shop for John on the lower floor and an art studio for Beth on the upper floor.
"Shop" + "Studio" = "Shopudio".

The Shopudio is predominantly solar heated, employing the heat storage pad technology used in passive solar houses constructed by Don Roscoe, solar builder. However, because there are no large windows to provide the solar heat gain, a large solar-heated panel, extending across the top of the structure, is used instead. In keeping with the solar theme, much of the lighting in both the shop and studio is natural, using skylights.

Both Beth and John belong to the Peggys Cove Area Festival of the Arts and participate in the annual studio tour in July. Their work can be seen at the Shopudio, which is open By chance or Appointment.

Visitors are welcome.
