Overview
More
Healesville Glass Blowing Studio was established in 2009 and is located in the beautiful Yarra Valley winery region of Victoria. Visitors to the studio are able to watch the fascinating art of glass blowing from the mezzanine viewing area in the gallery. The opportunity for a hands on experience is also offered, you can make your own paperweight or book in for a beginners glassblowing class. We create a range of glass art from sculpture, chandeliers and custom lighting to blown glass vases, platters and bowls. Our work is held in several museum collections around the world including The Australian National Glass Art Collection and The Victoria and Albert museum in London.

This is a great "little" place! The glass blowers are funny whilst still doing their job! The customer service is great too. The pieces they make are sooooo exquisite! They aren't cheap BUT, if you want an original and "stare worthy" item in your home...More
