• I saw something that you've made online that isn't for purchase here. How can I get one?  There are plenty of experiments I've designed that won't always be found here because of website limits, the seasons, or just plain timing. Contact me & I'm sure what you've seen can still be made for you.


  • When will you ship my purchased experiments to me?  It takes 1 - 3 business days to send out packages. If it's a custom or made-to-order request, a time frame will be discussed & I'll communicate with you every step of the way.
UPDATE: I will be away from "my studio" August 19-26th, 2015. Items purchased now will be shipped August 27th, 2015.   


  • What kind of shipping is included?   I use basic snail mail post to send out packages which may mean a it could take few weeks until your very own experiments arrive. If you'd like to pay for express or tracked shipping please contact so arrangements can be made. 


  • Where do you ship from?   I'm located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada & use my local post office to send out fun snail mail.


  • Hey! I live near you! Can I pick up instead?  Please contact me to possibly arrange a special public coffee shop rendezvous.


  • What makes these experiments so special?  Each experiment is designed & handmade by me, Cory U. Each experiment becomes a special one of a kind piece when I hand autograph it with either a hand stitched label or directly onto the piece itself. 


  • Do you do custom work?   Of course! If there's a colour or design idea you'd like to discuss, please contact me & we can have a good chat. Have a look at more details on my custom designs link too.


  • What do I do if I want an exchange or refund?   I try to represent my experiments & communicate to the best of my ability in the hopes that this won't happen. That being said, I understand things do happen or change that are out of our control. Firstly, please do not wear the experiment if you expect to return. Secondly, exchanges or refunds will be dealt with on a case by case basis dependant on the situation. Third, images of products or packaging will be requested from the purchaser.


  • Knitting? Crochet? What's the difference?   The difference is in the way the yarn is "woven" together. Knitting uses two needles while crochet uses one hook. Personally, I was always too tense for knitting & never got the hang of it. Crochet, to me, is more fluid, forgiving & open to mistakes. This is where the experimenting comes to play.


  • I heard you have arthritis, what's up with that?   I was diagnosed as early as the age of 7 & have had rather unique stories of pain throughout my life. Currently speaking, I have crazy hand pains & motivate myself to use crochet as a form of physiotherapy. It keeps my joints moving & keeps my muscles active. I've written a little more about my arthritis on my blog including a weekly series called #ToThePainTuesdays


  • Who snapped the photos for CUExperiments?  General product photos are taken by me. The nature-set photos featured on the main page have been snapped by the fabulous Naomi Rose. I've collaborated with her many times with multiple stories & images to share of her work on the blog.


  • What if my question isn't answered here?   Please contact me & I'll answer be sure to answer. If it's a great question, it might be added to the FAQs here!
