Terminal City Glass Co-op was founded in February 2012 as Canada’s first non-profit, co-operative glass arts facility. Our studio was built almost entirely with donated equipment and materials and the volunteer labour of our members.

Our mandate is provide access to specialized glass equipment and resources; offer educational glassmaking programs for novice to advanced learners; and to share the creative experience of glassmaking in a supportive and inclusive environment.

We offer classes in glassblowing, flameworking, beadmaking, and sandblasting for ages 16+, and encourage our students to further their exploration of glass as form of creative expression. 

Artists work independently out of our studio on their own individual projects and businesses.We support all kinds of community-building activities in the studio including slide shows, social events, member meet-ups, fundraisers and more.
