The Colour Jar

Welcome to our unique space: a 1920s tin ceiling spans all the elements you need for your creative pursuits— picture framing, quality art supplies, hand bookbinding and a piano studio!

You’ll find expert help from owners Tim and Barb Dyck. They followed each other around as they pursued the arts. Tim grew up on the prairies, and made him want to paint. This led him to university and a masters degree in printmaking; part of that experience was an apprenticeship in bookbinding in Montreal. Barb was raised in Ontario, and her musical background brought her to study piano pedagogy in New Jersey. They and their two daughters have made The Colour Jar a destination in Durham.

You can even watch an old-fashioned printing press in action!
