Canberra Glassworks

This time, PANTS is the last to jump on the bandwagon. You may have seen the ads on tv for the Canberra Glassworks, and naturally we want to get involved. If you want to just check the place out, it’s just near the Old Bus Depot Markets and is open 9am-5pm Wed-Sat, 10-4pm Sunday. Check out the Canberra Glassworks website for more details.

If you prefer to take a whim a tad too far, as we usually do, then you might be interested in the classes. You can become Mr Glass:

Mr Glass

Yes, I realise that wasn’t the source of the nickname, but it fits my story better than brittle bones.

So, there’s a few different options to help you emerge yourself in all things glassy. Assuming you can’t attend the weekday workshops, the options we have are to attend an action packed course over a few weeknights or do a half day workshop on a weekend. I vote night. Upcoming fun:

July 11, 18, 25, Aug 1

Intro classes:

  • Glass blowing ($450)
  • Kiln forming ($395)
  • Glass casting ($395)
  • August 8,15,22,29

  • Bead making, an introduction ($420)
  • This isn’t obviously a full list of all courses available, it’s really the ones that interest me. Check out the site for other options.
