Visit Amokura Glass Studio and Gallery in Rotorua

Amokura Glass is a glass-making studio and glass art gallery in Rotorua New Zealand. Run by artist Heather Kremen, the studio produces high-quality decorative and functional glass art. While they specialize in blown glass, they are passionate about art glass in all its forms and their facilities include studios for fused and cast glass and lead lighting. The hot shop is open to the public to see live glassblowing.

Can a noob give it a go?

Yes, of course! Their workshops are a fun and accessible way to try something new and make something that you’ll be proud of for the rest of your life.

They also offer a range of introductory workshops to make an object out of hot glass. Choose a Paperweight, Pumpkin, or Tumbler. Or try all three! These workshops give you a chance to experience glass-making firsthand and walk away with a unique piece of glass art that you’ve created yourself. Each workshop takes around 45 minutes to complete (although the glass needs to be left overnight to cool down safely). You will customize the design of your piece and then work one-on-one with the artists to make it!
