Our education program engages students through glass, an important material in our everyday life and a medium for artistic use
We offer a number of tours and workshops for children from four to 18 years, ranging from 25 minute workshops to tailored classes running over several weeks. Tours can be specially tailored to match your teaching focus, including science, history and art themes.
The Canberra Glasswork is offering a 20 per cent discount for any ACT schools booking for the Window on Learning education program during 2017.

- All hot glass needs to ‘anneal’ (cool down slowly at a controlled rate) in a kiln overnight, so arrangements need to be made to return to collect the work made by your students, allowing at least 48 hours before doing so. Alternatively, the item can be mailed to a specified address (postage is extra).
- Due to Workplace Health and Safety guidelines, all participants must wear closed footwear, non-synthetic clothing and ensure long hair is tied back. Failure to do so may result in being unable to attend the class.
