Build a career you love through creating with glass.

Program Overview

Learn from industry leaders

Sheridan's Glass program is the oldest of its kind in Canada, founded in 1969. You'll work closely with professors whose credentials range from diplomas to PhDs and are also practicing artists who keep up with industry trends. Other studios often turn to our faculty for consultation and advice, including producers of the Netflix hit reality series Blown Away.

Glass-blowing courses are just the beginning

Our Glass program takes an innovative approach to design, craft and contemporary art. In addition to glass-blowing courses, you'll be introduced to all the other ways you can work with glass: flame-working, sand casting, kiln casting, cold working and electroplating. You'll then enjoy the freedom to specialize in your favourite techniques and express your unique personality in your assignments.

Work in a state-of-the-art Glass studio

Glory holes, furnaces, engraving wheels, cold working and flame working stations, kilns, electroplating equipment and 3D printers. No matter what type of glass work you want to do, you'll find the right tools in our fully stocked studio — which is accessible seven days a week and maintained by a full-time technologist. You can even learn how to build your own equipment!

Be part of a creative community

Come be inspired by a community of like-minded people! Our AA-Wing at Trafalgar Road Campus breeds creativity, featuring five industry-calibre studios located footsteps from each other. Our interdisciplinary curriculum will provide you access to all of the studios. Work with fellow artists who have a wide variety of skillsets, enjoying exposure to each step of their process.
