Our Co-op

We use our collective ideas to generate products that are both beautiful and have meaning. Currently, our Members are choosing to work with stained glass.

This happens mainly in our Open Workshop, which takes place in Shawlands Arcade, Glasgow. We work ‘out-in-the-open’, people can see us working in our shop.

Open Workshops are FREE to attend. You are able to learn the skills needed to make our products in a friendly, supportive environment. This is not a class, we teach each other. You might be learning from someone who has just a couple of weeks more experience than yourself.

Re-Use/Recycle

When thinking about our products, we want to incorporate ‘found’ or discarded materials as much as possible.

This sends a message that there is beauty in almost everything around us. How can we see our world differently, and what role do we play?

Self-Sustaining

Alongside our ‘bread-and-butter’ products made in the Open Workshop, we also take commissions and can advise and carry out repair work.

Our aim is to be self-sustaining - ‘cap-on-head’ rather than ‘cap-in-hand’.
