Heart of Entrepreneurism

a bit of history

wedSTUDIO is so proud to make our home in the Kelly Block,  a beautiful brick historic building in the neighbourhood of Tuxedo Park. Previously known as the Hicks Block, this building was built in 1913 for Dr. William a. Hicks, a Calgary dentist who entered the real estate market during the boom as owner of the W.A. Hicks investment company.

The Hicks Block contained four storefronts on the ground level and apartments upstairs. Renamed to the Kelly Block, this historic building has been remodelled for office space upstairs and retail space downstairs, housing seven businesses of entrepreneurial spirit.

We continue the entrepreneurial spirit by sharing our space with like minds, offering our space as a launch pad for other small businesses to affordably dive into fantastic creative endeavors, play, and collaborate with other small businesses with on-site resources to keep the creativity flowing non-stop.

The Boutique is equipped with a three tier 8 ft long photography backdrop system, so
visitors can transit from design work to product photography with ease.

The boutique can also be cleared out to turn the space
into an interactive private workshop to build
intimate business relationships with our members and their clients.
A large TV on a rolling rack is available for visual showings & presentations, if requested.

There is also an onsite portable backdrop rack for your own fabric or paper backdrops,
umbrella lighting units, and LED light tubes for photography and video use.

The Meet Space includes use of the attached kitchen space and
is equipped with a full size refrigerator, microwave, and sink
