Glass Games

  • Canberra Glassworks 9 Wentworth Avenue Kingston, ACT, 2604 Australia (map)


Concert 12

The Kingston foreshore Powerhouse building that is now the home of Canberra Glassworks, together with Fitters’ Workshop, belongs to the earliest industrial architecture in the ACT. Now a unique and busy centre of glassblowing activity, the building’s large open spaces, furnaces and workshops form the backdrop for a musical ‘hot shop’. Audiences will have an opportunity to hear and see several festival artists in solo mode alongside glass blowers and their newest creations.
