New Zealand Glassworks

Experience the magic of working with hot glass

New Zealand Glassworks -Te Whare Tūhua o Te Ao (NZG) is a dynamic and creative hub, deep in the heart of Whanganui’s tourism precinct; a place of high creative energy which encourages community involvement and pride and a vibrant centre for artists to learn, make, sell and be inspired. 

It is the first national centre for community glass in the country and is helping to unify the already established community of glass artists here in Whanganui and New Zealand.

New Zealand Glassworks is an exciting and interactive glass facility open to the entire community. Open seven days a week from 10am to 4:30 each day (closed on public holidays). Please check their online calendar to see who might be working on the day of your visit or when the next scheduled workshop will be running.
