Shades of Ngwenya Shades of Ngwenya glass blowing factory is the hub of the Ngwenya Glass Village, only 20 minutes from JHB, a glass wonderland where you can watch the ancient art of glassblowing at work and buy fabulous handmade recycled glassware.

Come and enjoy long lazy lunches at all Gilroy’s brewery – World of Food under shady trees while the kids have fun in the playground…

Outside the factory, mountains of recycled glass twinkle wickedly in the sun. About 500kgs of glass are crushed daily at Ngwenya, and melted down in a red hot furnace overnight, at an incredible 1400 degrees Celsius.

By morning, the glass melt is reduced to a ‘manageable’ 1200 degrees C. Then the glass-masters work their magic, drawing the glass out and blowing it into bulbous shapes.

Ngwenya Glass Village is open Tuesdays to Sundays from 9am to 4:30pm. All shops and Restaurants and closed on Mondays except Shades of Ngwenya
