The Glassworks Experience…
Click the + on the steps below to see what you can expect during your visit.
Step 1. Select Your Project
A $10 per additional person sharing fee will be applied to guests working together on a project, this does not apply to children under 10 except where an adult uses cutting tools to assist the child.
For young children (3 -6 years) we have prepared kits with written and visual instructions included.
Step 2. Instruction
Guests aged 10+ have the option to cut glass, for younger customers or those who do not wish to cut the glass we have small precut pieces; amazing projects can be created either way.
At this stage most people are surprised to be presented with a flat piece of glass - the slumping process (if you selected a shaped project) happens later in the kiln.
Step 3. Start Designing
Feeling shaky? You can choose an outline stencil or look at an assortment of idea books for inspiration. For a small charge, we also offer embellishments and charms that will enhance your design.

Step 5. Finishing Up
We hope that you enjoy your masterpiece, we try our best to make sure your project gets back to you safely; occasionally, due to the nature of the process, accidents happen. Should anything happen to your project we will contact you with your options.
