Kitras Art Glass is seeking multiple experienced Glassblowers at its growing studio in Fergus, Ontario, Canada. The successful candidates will be responsible for the efficient production of high-quality handblown glass products in this permanent, full-time position.

Kitras Art Glass has been in business for over 30 years and is a family-run blown glass studio selling in both Canada and the United States. The business is in need of more glass maker talent.

This position is not a studio position, it’s a full-time production role, in a fast-paced environment. Kitras also offers a piecework program after daily quotas are met for all glassmakers.

The Kitras team can help with work permits and housing, if necessary, for international applicants.
