Creative craftsmanship from a small shop setting is still around and flourishing. As husband and wife for over 30 years, we've combined our talents in watercolor painting and clock repair to form our businesses, The Dutchmaster's Joinery, Ltd. and the Canal Street Studio. The Canal Street Studio is where Joanne gives her private art lessons and is home to her artwork. It also showcases handcrafted, fair trade creations from our artisan partners in the U.S. and around the world. Chris'has been repairing clocks for over 20 years. Our repair shop is an authorized Howard Miller and Ridgeway repair center.
Integrity and honesty are important to us. If they're important to you too, then you've come to the right place. Whether immersed in art or listening to the ticking of clocks, we think you'll find our space is a "place of peace." We look forward to the opportunity to be able to serve you.
