Years ago we were mesmerised watching the glass artists at work so Canberra Glassworks was a priority this trip. We booked ahead for both a tour and to get creative and make glass mosaic tiles. The tour took us over the various floors of the Glassworks, we were told about displays and observed different types of glass work. These are paid activities plus there was postage for the sending of our completed artworks back as our trip was too short for the glass to be fired, cooled and ready to collect before our departure. Our guide was friendly, and patient and encouraging when we were creating our postcard sized glass pictures. This was both fun and illuminating as we worked and watched each other in our family get creative. General entry to wander the historic building, see displays and watch live glass making is free/by donation. There is a gift shop with beautiful glass jewellery and objects, and a cafe also. There is a very tall marble run.

I'd always wanted to see glass blowing and this demonstration was wonderful. As you watch, the odd question that crosses your mind causes you to look around and notice posters with those very questions (and the answers) on the walls. I guess we aren't that original! We could leave whenever we wanted, as the viewing platform is on a higher level. So we strolled through different workshops and projects, admiring the old building as we went (it was the power station in an earlier life).great activity for the whole family.

Whilst we didn't purchase any glass products, it was very interesting to watch the glassblowers creating a vase whilst we were there.

If you like looking at how glassware is blown and shaped, this is the place. In the (hot) factory area, there are seats for people to watch. There is also an opportunity to try your own hand ..but this needs to be booked prior, the day we were there all spots had been booked! Was fun to watch people try their hand , under the watchful and informative tutor! Further inside is a large area where local glassmakers can rent areas and equipment to make their creations. We spent some time talking with one lady, Luna Ryan, and she showed us her process of making casts, to pour her glass into. Very interesting and knowledgable lady.. with both the glass but also the history of the Glassworks. Downstairs is a beautiful shop with the most exquisite glassware to buy! There is also a cafe attached to building, but mostly burgers. A great place to visit.
