In Sheridan’s Honours Bachelor of Craft and Design – Glass program, you’ll be immersed in all aspects of working with glass in a supportive atmosphere.
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.
This program contains a mandatory internship for all students during the summer (May-August) between the 3rd and 4th years.
Internships are a form of work-integrated learning that links classroom learning with work experience within a professional environment. Internship work terms are related to the academic studies of the student and may be paid or unpaid. The work terms provide an opportunity to learn by doing. You’ll apply theory to practice, develop a meaningful view of the working world, and cultivate an awareness of yourself as a professional.
The glass industry has seen considerable growth in the opening of new studios. Many of our graduates have also gone on to find employment in design firms, manufacturing industries, arts service organizations and galleries. Skills you develop in your studies can be applied to many other disciplines as well.
