Terminal City Glass Co-op

11 artists from Terminal City Glass Co-op are participating in this year’s Eastside Culture Crawl. Terminal City Glass Co-op was founded in 2012 as Canada’s first and only non-profit, co-operative glass arts facility. The Co-op is home to some of Canada’s top, award-winning glass artists, who are able to practice their medium in a fantastically, creative space.
