Make Your Own

Make Your Own sessions are temporarily unavailable. If you have a gift voucher, we will contact you when this experience reopens.

Please be aware that during the Make Your Own workshop, you will be working in close proximity to other people. Canberra Glassworks maintains rigorous cleaning and sanitation practices to ensure that all equipment is carefully attended to. Wherever possible, we ask that you practice social distancing during the duration of the activity.

Create your own artwork with one-on-one guidance from a highly skilled Teaching Artist. Make your own paperweight, bird, tumbler or vase in a short one-on-one session from 20 to 40 minutes long.

We also offer a variety of Creative Workshops, including glass blowing, flame working, cold working, engraving, bead making, kiln forming and casting for all different levels of ability. Click here for details.
