Established in March 2013 by Bethany Wheeler, 1000 Degrees Glass Studio is set up as a space for artists and designers to realise their creative concepts.
Starting with a 230sqm empty shell, the studio now hosts artists’ spaces, a kiln forming area, sandblasting space, a purpose built cold working and wax/mould making workshop.
The workshop can also facilitate lots of functions along with creative production. There is a large communal space that is often used for hosting collectors’ tours, meetings with galleries and clients, photo shoots and packing for exhibitions. A gallery/project space offers room for trialing installs, installations and showcasing new works to visitors.
1000 Degrees Studios are situated on the fringe of industrial Moorabbin within close proximity to glass suppliers, glass blowing workshops, hot rod mechanics, market gardens, the beach and wetlands.
The workshop is available 24 hours to resident artists and by appointment to occasional users whether it be a kiln firing, space for a photo shoot or an hour or more of cold working
There are up to four resident artists based at 1000 Degrees at any one time, which along with occasional users of the space and equipment creates a vibrant and supportive creative collective.
1000 Degrees would like to acknowledge the Boon Wurrung people who are the Traditional Custodians of the land that we live and work on.
We would also like to pay respect to Elders both past and present of the Kulin Nation and extend that respect to other Aboriginals reading this.
