We will soon be turning our furnace on for the glass blowing season, this means Glass Blowing classes will commence in October. If you or your friends would be interested in a no-experience necessary Glass Blowing lesson, please contact Ogishi Craft Centre or make a booking online as soon as possible. Places have been filling up fast as we only have a limited amount of lesson times available.
Glass blowing is a fun and exciting activity, and a unique and rewarding experience. Lessons are available for one or two people per class and you will be given expert instruction from Setsuko Ogishi herself as a one on one experience.
Gift Vouchers are also available for those who would like to give the experience to somebody else. For any enquiries please email or phone Ogishi Craft Centre.
4 perfume bottles are added to the online store. Please visit http://ogishishop.weebly.com/store/c9/Perfume_Bottles.html
More pieces are coming on the online store soon.
It's Warm and Windy day today. But it's still good our veranda with the windworks. Australian made wind twisters and baskets are available to purchase at Ogishi Craft Centre.
Setsuko has been making milk/water jugs for many years. These are funky ones like bird or fish. They are on display today in Ogishi Craft Centre Gallery.
Free Wi-fi internet is available at the artist cottage accommodation from today. It took a while to make this happen for us. We could not use wireless equipment because of distance from main router to the cottage and walls between.
Since this morning, glassblowing lesson booking & payment can be done through Ogishi's website page.
A few people have received a gift voucher of the lesson recently. They can book their lesson day online now.
I was thrilled with our first booking & payment for April 2014 came this aftermoon through this system.
It needs more improvement. But so far I am very happy with.
Exciting new addition has arrived. We have some local aboriginal paintings from Ungooroo Aboriginal Corporation on display. They look fantastic with our colourful glassworks.

I am one of the few women glassblowers in Australia and, in physical structure the smallest. However, I do have an important advantage and uniqueness - I have a woman's eye. This is why delicacy, softness and simplicity are always present in my work
