Who We Are
The Capital Glass Collective is about offering everything needed to educate, promote and teach about glass as a medium for artistic expression. Here at the Co-op, we get so much excitement and joy out of all things glass and we would really like to share it with you, the Ottawa community.
The Co-op is committed to create a mindful purpose beyond just making glass. We have partnered up with Odawa Indigenous Friendship Centre to provide a pioneering glass art program for youth at risk. Our goal is to give them the tools they need to create glass art that expresses who they are and tells their personal stories while teaching them practical life skills they can take with them, moving forward in their lives.
Our mission is to create a new generation of glass artists and ultimately make a lasting contribution to the contemporary glass art movement of Canada. Being part of the Capital Glass Co-op is about being part of something larger than just one individual. It’s about being part of a group of like minded people who share in the excitement of glass and all the potential that it holds for ourselves and our community!
