The Canberra Glassworks Education Program provides opportunities for the whole community to engage with the exciting and inspiring creation of glass art.
The program includes Gallery Talks and hands-on classes for one-off day visitors, for young artists (aged 8-17), and for adults at a variety of levels, including advanced classes for practising artists.
The program covers a wide variety of techniques including flame working, glass blowing, cold working, kiln forming and casting.
Short Courses or Beginner Classes teach participants core glass working techniques from first principles.
On-going classes provide those with some experience the opportunity to apply and extend their skills to create more accomplished works and gain a more thorough understanding of processes.
Intensive Professional Workshops provide specialist in-depth workshops in advanced glass working methods with national and international artists at the top of their field.
School Holiday Programs are held every school holidays and include both kiln-formed tile sessions and more indepth 3 hour classes as well as a Kid’s Design Competition held at least once every year.
School Tours and Experiences are tailor made and usually include a tour of the historic building and the artist facilities around the Canberra Glassworks as well as a tile making session for students.
