Visitors to the studio are able to watch the fascinating art of glass blowing from the mezzanine viewing area in the gallery. The opportunity for a hands on experience is also offered, you can make your own paperweight or book in for a beginners glassblowing class. We create a range of glass art from sculpture, chandeliers and custom lighting to blown glass vases, platters and bowls. Our work is held in several museum collections around the world including The Australian National Glass Art Collection and The Victoria and Albert museum in London. « less

While I appreciate the work done here would be loved by some, it wasn't what we were expecting. Not a place for children and couldn't get anyone's attention. That being said, perhaps another visit would be a different experience

Attended here for a weekend glassblowing workshop given to my husband as a present. WOW! The quality of the wares you produce in this workshop is amazing. Lucy took the workshop and is fantastic and truly loves what she does - this is portrayed in her teaching style. It is a well run and would recommend this experience to everyone.... More

My elderly Mother, myself and 2 friends spent the most amazing weekend in this studio in Healesville. On the first introductory day we had the opportunity to make a few small pieces which were cool enough to take home on the second day, giving us some items to brag about almost immediately. Our teacher was gentle knowledgable and helpful. A... More

I collect glass paperweights, so have been to several hot-glass studios in different parts of the world. However, I still get a thrill out of watching a skilled team of people create something beautiful out of a lump of molten glass. Not to mention the inherent danger! Hot, hot, hot!!! Be sure to visit the studio to observe the process,... More

We thought we would just go for a quick visit to the glassblowing studio and left after 1.5 hours. We were amazed by the glass blowing in progress and the objects that they produced were beautiful and yes we bought a lovely piece while we were there. It is a fasinating place to visit and it is just outside Healesville..

Thank you for taking the time to review us, it means a lot to us. We fell in love with the medium years ago and we are still fascinated by it! We opened our studio to the public because we wanted to share this beautiful art. When people like yourself drop in for a moment and stay longer than they... More

You can watch the glass blowing which is very interesting and they had a good selection of vases and jewellery to purchase.

We were fortunate enough to arrive at the studio just as Tim and his assistant were starting a large piece. Although our 2 year olds were nonplused and it was understandably hot in the viewing gallery, it was a privilege for us to watch this creativity unfolding in front of us. Yes, the artists are not that keen on giving... More

Tim and Tali are such a welcoming couple when people visit the Healesville studio, and they are both incredibly talented glass artists. I first visited in 2010 when I was given a gift voucher for a weekend glassblowing workshop by my family. I have always loved glass, and have collected glass pieces for many years, so to be given the... More
