Welcome to the Ottawa Glassblowing Co-op...
A group of former Flo Glassblowing renters is starting up a co-op. We’ll be reorganizing the hot shop over the summer and plan to be up and running come September!
The co-op will be run by a Board of Directors, comprised of members, and all funds will be used to keep the organization going. We want to build an inclusive glassblowing community by cooperatively providing resources to support the artistic creativity, learning and growth of its members and to engage the public in the art of glass.
If the co-op sounds interesting to you, we have a few options to get involved:
If you're interested in renting time in the hot shop, you will need to become a member… but you don’t have to be a glassblower to be a member. So if you want to support our vision and be engaged in the inner workings of the co-op, you're most welcome to join.
If you would like to make a donation (but do not wish to be a member) we would be thrilled to have your support! Donation amounts of $250 and above will receive a custom made thank you gift created by members of the co-op!
The Ottawa Glassblowing Co-op welcomes all people who are interested in pursuing an interest in glass arts. We are an inclusive community that welcomes and values a diversity of people in its membership.
Click on the Apply button below to fill out an application. Once approved, you'll be asked to make a one-time $250 Member Loan and then chose a Membership Plan (below) depending on how frequent a renter you plan to be: from newbie to professional glassblower! As an added bonus, apply before 01 Nov 2019 and we'll waive the $50 application fee!!!
