New Zealand Glassworks Reviews
You can see the glass being blown here. Get a good view from above the workshop. The glass on show is beautiful and for sale. I could not resist buying a beautiful vase. Well worth a visit. more »
Really really beautiful collection of works, and super exciting to be able to see some artists or even novices in action down on the workshop floor! more »
Always worth a look. The kiln isn't always in operation but treat it as a bonus if it is. Some stunning pieces which show the art and skill of the glass artists.
Quick visit. Kiln not working today so we will return next time we visit. The glass colours were amazing. Lovely friendly staff.
