About
Hot Glass Fiji is Fiji's first glass blowing studio, where glass is hand blown to create beautiful souvenirs and memories of Fiji. The studio is free to visit and we offer a unique and hugely enjoyable glassblowing experience for anyone who would like to try glassblowing - make your own stunning souvenir of fantastic Fiji! The work is inspired by the cool colours of the sea, the luscious greens of the rain forest and the traditional Fijian textures and long used traditional craft skills. Hot Glass Fiji has designed and made pieces of art which can be used or just admired in your homes. Each piece is a unique and wonderful memory of Fiji. All are welcome to come to the studio located in our lush tropical garden overlooking the ocean on Sunset Strip, Korotogo. Take the time to watch the fascinating process of glass blowing, browse and buy our unique Fiji made glassware.

    Great glass art studio. Browse, watch and learn the art of glass making.
    Found out about this place on trip advisor an so glad we did. The studio offered some really great pieces at reasonable prices. They had chairs set up where you could sit and watch the glass making process as long as you wanted too. Met the owner and staff and they were very welcoming. They also offer classes if you want to make your own glass. Very cool experience.
    Bula! We love having people visit the studio and watch the team at work - glassblowing is really cool to watch! Thank you for visiting and for the lovely review. Vinaka, Alex Hot Glass Fiji

    Fun artistic experience
    We were at Fiji Hot Glass to experience the glass blowing lesson and to look at the wonderful pieces made by Alice and her team. We did this with our 10 yr old daughter who absolutely loved the lesson and was able to create her own piece based on her own inspiration with help from Peter and the others. The lesson is an explanation about the glass blowing proces whilst being demonstrated. This made it fun to watch, easy to follow and not to lengthy. Followed by blowing your own glass piece with the help and guidance of the team. Amazing to see how from nearly nothing you can make something so quickly. However to see the final result the glass needs to cool down before you can see the full end result which you can take home with you. We would highly recommend to visit Fiji Hot Glass if you are looking for a fun and a bit different activity and/or if want to take something special home from your trip to the Fijian islands.
    Cola Vina, It was absolutely fantastic having you visit and we are so glad you had such a great time. Thank you so much for the glowing review and we look forward to seeing you back again for the next birthday! Vinaka vakalevu, Alex, Alice, Laisa, Pita and all the Hot Glass team!

    A glittering display
    Hot Glass studio was on our must visit agenda, and it didn’t fail to impress us! We got to see them doing the glass blowing and see the final product. Their display of items for sale was excellent and very reasonably priced which we took advantage of and came away with some amazing glassware. They packaged it well as we got it home in one piece. Since arriving back in Australia, we have checked out their website and have purchased more online which was a quick and easy process as they responded in fast time. You must have Hot Glass on your to visit when in Fiji
    Bula, Thank you for visiting us at the studio - we are so pleased that you enjoyed your visit and our hand blown glass. Its great that you have chosen to buy some extra pieces from our online shop - the ecommerce has taken a bit of Fiji time to set up so we are thrilled that people are using it!

    Excellent experience in Korotogo
    I visited the studio and had a glass blowing session during my visit in Fiji at Hot Glass Fiji. Highly recommend this experience, I had a ball. The staff really look after you; there are a lot of steps and and I’d never done this before, but I felt in safe and calm hands making my bowl. I picked it up the following day and am so chuffed with my creation!
    Bula! Thank you so much for visiting our studio and trying your hand at glassblowing yourself. We are thrilled that you enjoyed yourself and are chuffed with your bowl - we hope it brings you many happy memories of Fiji! Vinaka vakalevu, The Hot Glass Fiji team

    An absolute must do of an experience of staying in the area. Peter and the rest of the guys are so great with guiding you through the process of glassblowing, making you feel comfortable, and helping you to create a meaningful souvenir to take home. Such beautiful work in a really beautiful studio.

    Great experience and take home souvenir..
    Hot glass is a beautiful open aired studio, where you can take a workshop and it's such an eye opening experience. The staff are amazing and explain everything as you go along. I would highly recommend doing a workshop or sand casting, making your own souvenir is such a fun thing to be doing. Kids would love to do the sand casting. Highly recommended!!

Amazing few hours being coached by Peter and his team - a giant of a man guiding me through the fine details and touches required to produce a piece of glass art of my choice - I learnt a huge amount and not just about glass blowing but how time passes and the mind clears when focused on creating and learning a new skill - go visit, learn and grow and experience the vibe.

This was a really cool little activity! We sat and watched the lads create a few different objects then had a bit of a shop ourselves. Would have loved to have a turn myself with one of the experiences but we just didn’t have time!
