Canberra Glassworks provides artists with state-of-the-art equipment; intensive workshops taught by leading glass artists; studios and residency programs; and a unique context to explore, develop and realise new work.

Canberra Glassworks also provides diverse opportunities for visitors to interact with and learn about glass making and the heritage of Canberra’s Kingston Power House.
