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.

Ngwenya Glass Village is the ideal venue for a day or weekend outing with 12 Shops to browse around. Come and enjoy long lazy lunches at all Gilroy's brewery and Zest – 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.

Five days a week and the last full weekend of the month, visitors can experience the wonders of glass blowing, watching molten glass being magically transformed into beautiful trophies and awards.
