Canberra Glassworks Ltd ATF Canberra Glassworks Foundation

Built and funded by the ACT Government, Canberra Glassworks is Australia's only cultural centre that is wholly dedicated to contemporary glass art.

At its core Canberra Glassworks is a working Glassworks that provides access to glassmaking facilities for glass artists.

Australia has developed an enviable reputation nationally and internationally for the quality and skill of its glass artists. By providing essential equipment, space and development opportunities through the Canberra Glassworks the ACT Government is giving these artists, and those that follow, opportunities to grow and further develop their glass practice, and to further contribute to this very special local industry.

Canberra Glassworks provides artists with state-of-the-art equipment; intensive workshops taught by leading glass artists; studios and mentorship 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 Powerhouse. Visitors can meet artists, see glassmaking as it happens, view exhibitions, take tours and have a hands-on experience working with glass.

Canberra Glassworks was officially opened by Mr Jon Stanhope MLA, ACT Chief Minister and Minister for the Arts, on 25 May 2007.
