Ottawa Glassblowing Co-op opens
After a short hiatus, glassblowing is back at the corner of Gladstone and Loretta. Flo Glassblowing closed earlier this year; in its place is the Ottawa Glassblowing Co-op, a member-based group with lots of opportunities for trying your hand at the fine art of working with molten glass. Opening day includes demonstrations and prizes and a chance to chat with the welcoming group behind the OGC.

Ottawa Glassblowing Co-op, 957C Gladstone Ave.
