Terminal City Glass Co-op was founded in February 2012 as Canada’s first and only 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 to provide access to high-quality glassmaking equipment and resources for the artistic development of emerging and established artists; to offer an educational glass program for the public in efforts to encourage awareness of glass as an art medium; to engage the community through events that promote glass as an art form.

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.
