Immerse yourself in creativity at glass workshops and award winning markets in Kingston.
Shoppers browse stalls at the Old Bus Depot Markets in Kingston, a lakeside suburb of Canberra

Take a free self-guided tour, watch the drama of hot glass blowing in the Hotshop or try your hand at glassmaking at the Canberra Glassworks.

Australia’s only cultural centre wholly dedicated to contemporary glass art, the Glassworks also provide diverse opportunities for visitors to interact with and learn about glassmaking. Meet artists, see glassmaking as it happens, view exhibitions, take tours and have a hands on experience working with glass. View the two cutting-edge contemporary exhibition spaces and buy exquisite handmade pieces in the gift shop.

You can also visit the national award-winning Old Bus Depot Markets for a spot of Sunday shopping. With a focus on showcasing hundreds of talented local and regional designers and craftspeople, the Old Bus Depot Markets are a favourite destination for clothing, artwork, delicious food and designer homewares.

And after a busy morning, there’s nothing better than grabbing a delicious burger from the popular Brodburger cafe off the Canberra Glassworks.
