Historic Washburn Grist Mill (1865) is located northeast of Kingston at Lower Brewers Lock on the Rideau Canal, Ontario’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site. It has been restored and transformed into a unique artist's studio, mill museum and gallery shop, with beautiful grounds. 

Doner Studio is owned by Darlene and Randal Doner. They make and sell their own art (metal, jewelry, candles) and carry paintings and glass blowing art from local artists. 

Randal has been designing metal art sculptures which enhance both indoor and outdoor living spaces for over 20 years.  His pieces are often whimsical, yet functional. Life-sized figures depict musicians, butlers, athletes and playing children. His stainless steel work also includes garden accents, wall art, and custom pieces.

Darlene creates sterling silver jewellery, incorporating pearls, raw uncut stones, polished gemstones, and silver nuggets. She specializes in accenting her designs with silver wire tangles. Her jewellery collection includes hand-crafted pendants, rings and earrings. Darlene also uses beads and wire to enhance garden items such as fairies, dragonflies and crystal suncatchers.

Darlene and Randal have a beautiful 7 acre property along the Rideau Canal. There is a small walking trail through the woods, and a sculpture path along the shores Rideau for visitors to enjoy. It is the perfect setting to view Randal's sculptures and whimsical garden art. Historic Lower Brewers Lock, where boaters stay overnight as they travel along the Rideau from Kingston to Ottawa, is just a few steps away.  

Service in English and a little bit in French.

Parking Information:  four large  RV parking sites on grass backing onto the woods and trail, and a smaller waterfront parking area besides the road. Doner Studio is located on a quiet country road 300 meters from Highway 15, 20 minutes north of downtown Kingston, and about 1 hour 45 minutes from Ottawa.
