New Zealand Glassworks will reopen to visitors on Thursday, 14 May. Hours are 10.00am-4.30pm, seven days a week.

To meet physical distancing requirements, ten visitors will be allowed in at a time and once this number has been reached a ‘one out, one in’ policy will be applied. 

A hand sanitising station will be located at the New Zealand Glassworks entry point and all visitors will need to provide their name, phone number and email for contact tracing purposes when they arrive. 

We ask visitors to refrain from touching the art glass on display.

School visits, group visits exceeding ten people and workshops will remain on hold until further notice. 

Staff have implemented stringent hygiene measures, such as frequent hand washing and regular disinfecting of surfaces, to operate safely under Alert Level 2.

We will continue to publish updates related on our website and social platforms.
