Canberra Glassworks has developed a pivotal role in the establishment of Canberra as a world-renowned centre for glass art, providing glass artists with facilities that would be hard to find anywhere in the world.

This could not have been achieved without the very generous support of the ACT Government through artsACT, the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, the business community and individuals.

Canberra Glassworks will continue to provide subsidised access to its facilities, provide residency programs and engage artists of national and international standing to provide professional workshops. It will continue to provide high quality exhibitions, provide access to a high standard of works for sale, deliver education and public programs which provide unique opportunities for the community to see art being made in the building by professional artists, to be involved in make-your-own experiences with guidance from professional artists and supporting people to learn about the art of glass making.
