Halifax Workshops

  • Pre-paid registration is required: please register online or contact us at the store.
  • These workshops are open to everyone. However, those under the age of 18 will need a guardian to sign a waiver.
  • Attendees save 10% on any purchases made afterward.
  • Sliding scale or reduced prices are often available for students and others with limited incomes.
  • Some workshops specify an audience (such as women or men): "women" includes trans women and "men" includes trans men.
  • Workshops are held at Venus Envy (1727 Barrington Street) unless specified otherwise.
  • Sign language interpretation is available upon request, please contact 



  • At the moment our front door must be opened manually, for assistance in entry, please ring the doorbell against the window to the right of the door. A Venus Envy staff will be happy to assist with entry.
  • The door itself is made of wood and is about a medium heaviness, and has a hydraulic mechanism that shuts the door automatically.
  • The door opens out from the shop and the door handle is on the right side of the door when you are coming from the outside.
  • There is a ramp to get into the shop, and where the ramp meets the doorframe there is a 3/4 inch lip, and then a second 2 inch lip before the floor smoothes out.
  • We have a public-use washroom available towards the back of the store, that we are currently working on to make more accessible.
  • Currently, the light switch is about 47 inches from the ground, and there is a grab bar installed to the left of the toilet.
  • The washroom is quite wide, leaving lots of room for moving about the space.
  • The sink in the washroom right now does not have space underneath to allow for driving under, but we are working to replace this with a more appropriate sink. We are also working to add a grab bar to the back of the toilet.
  • The toilet is taller than average, with a seat at about 18.5 inches off the ground.
  • The door of the washroom is manual but light, and stays open without being pushed or pulled.
