CAN­BERRA Glass­works, opened in 2007 in the for­mer Kingston Pow­er­house, is a fas­ci­nat­ing gallery and artists’ workspace. For a coin do­na­tion you can take your place on a view­ing plat­form to watch ar­ti­sans craft­ing blown and cold-worked glass; bet­ter still, book a 20-minute week­end Hot Glass session for $70 and cre­ate your own pa­per­weight. There are more in­ten­sive glass-mak­ing cour­ses avail­able, but if you don’t fancy try­ing your hand you can al­ways pick up a sou­venir at the on-site gift store. The stu­dios are open from 10am to 4pm, Wed­nes­day to Sun­day. More: (02) 6260 7005; can­ber­ra­glass­works.com.
