COVID-19: New Zealand Glassworks

New Zealand Glassworks has reopened to visitors. Hours are 10.00am-4.30pm, seven days a week. 

To meet physical distancing requirements, 10 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.
