Who is the Pietersma Tinworks?

The Pietersma Tinworks was founded by Greg Pietersma. A maker at heart, Greg knew immediately he had found his material when he worked as an apprentice at historic Upper Canada Village. To develop his skills, he furthered his apprenticeship with noted master tinsmith Billy McMillen of Staten Island NY.
Along the way Greg decided his dream was to work for himself. In 1991 he started The Tin Shop which was incorporated as The Pietersma Tinworks, Ltd in 1998.
Originally Greg made reproductions of pieces made by 19th century tinsmiths. Gradually Greg adapted these pieces into a collection of products that fit the 21st century, and designed and built tools and machines to help with the adaptations.

We would like to let our customers know that Pietersma Tinworks is currently relocating and is under new ownership. Due to the current pandemic (and its associated material delivery delays); along with the relocation of the equipment, it will be difficult to complete custom orders for the 2020 season. With that being said, please be aware that not all orders can be processed during this transition. We thank you for your understanding and look forward to providing you with our high-quality Canadian made tinware in the coming seasons. Please email garrett@pietersmatinworks.com if you have any questions. Thank you and all the best, Pietersma Tinworks and family
