The Kids’ Glass Design Competition
Each year, the Canberra Glassworks runs a glass design competition (usually during the ACT Children’s Week) for kids aged between 3 and 17.
Young designers can choose a glass process or technique their work will be created with, by a professional artist:
- Kiln formed glass
- Cast glass
- Hot blown glass
There are usually several age categories for the competition:
- 3 – 8 years
- 9 – 13 years
- 14 – 17 years
- Chief Minister’s Award
Shortlisted winners in each category are then invited to work with a professional artist in a special workshop session to further develop their designs.
Final entries by the shortlisted winners are considered by a panel of judges, including the artists involved in the project.
Winners get to keep the finished works, to be presented to them at a special event.
Stay tuned for the next Kid’s Glass Design Competition!
