COVID Safety Measures:

Studio RAW accessibility: 


While RAW made every effort to secure a wheelchair accessible space, viable spaces were extremely limited to us due the noise-allowance requirements of our taiko activities. We regret that Studio RAW is not wheelchair accessible at this time.

  • Studio RAW is located on the top/second floor of a low-rise building, and unfortunately, it is not wheelchair accessible. To access the studio, visitors must walk up one flight of stairs (20 steps) with railing. The stairwell is 45” wide. 

  • Studio RAW is a low-scent space and RAW regularly uses unscented cleaning products.

  • There is one small single stall, all-gender washroom in the studio.
