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 Vision is to build community through the exploration of glass as a form of creative expression.

Our Mission to 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. If you have a project and you need a glass artist to work with us, get in touch and we will do our best to connect you with someone who can help.

We support all kinds of community-building activities in the studio including slide shows, social events, member meet-ups, fundraisers and more.
