Floor plans

Detailed floor plans will be available soon.  In the meantime this floor plan is a brief overview of the public spaces within our facility.

Engine Room

Used by artists for kiln working, flame working and finishing techniques such as grinding and polishing, known as cold working. Historically, this area housed the Kingston Powerhouse turbine engines.

The Hotshop

Where artists blow glass and use other hot glass techniques. On the Hotshop floor there is a furnace used to melt glass, glory holes used to ensure the glass remains hot while artists are working on it and kilns to allow the hot glass objects to be brought back to room temperature slowly. This was formerly the Boiler Room in the Kingston Powerhouse and if you look up you can see the huge coal hoppers which held the coal used to generate electricity.

Shop

Visit the Canberra Glassworks shop for the best in contemporary glassware and glass jewellery by leading artists from around Australia. Gift Certificates are available for a hands-on ‘hot glass experience’ for that person who has everything!
