Located in the historic former Kingston Powerhouse, Canberra Glassworks is a stateof-the-art facility for the production of studio glass. Students will see artists in action in the Hotshop making blown glass objects, and will gain an understanding of different ways that handmade glass objects are created in our various workshops.
