Looking to mix things up this year for Valentines? Well, look no further, because thanks to Janke Studios we’ve found a date to trump all other dates. Janke Studios is Atlanta’s first complete glassblowing center, and now you can experience the unique art of glassblowing for yourself, through an intimate, hands-on private class.
Established by Matt Janke in 1996, Janke Studios is the epicenter of the art of glassblowing in Atlanta. The team of professional artists here specializes in making beautiful glass creations of all types, from light fixtures and commissioned art pieces to home décor and restaurant ware. In addition to their commissioned work, Janke Studios is also dedicated to sharing the art of glassblowing through education, and has offered a variety of hands-on classes for several years. Now the studio is adding a little romance to the equation, with an intimate Valentines Day class for two. In the class, you and your date will learn how to create glass paperweights and flowers of your own design. Your instructor – one of Janke Studios’ trained pro glassblowers – will help you gather, heat, and shape molten glass using a variety of tools and techniques. You’ll also be able to infuse colors into your designs by adding combinations of colored broken glass as you continue to heat and shape your molten glass into a finished product.
After your paperweights and flowers are complete, they’ll be placed in an oven to slowly cool until you take them home to enjoy the shapes and colors crafted by your own hands. But with glassblowing, the process is just as mesmerizing as the finished product, which is what makes a class like this so awesome, and – in our opinion – the ultimate date idea. In addition to your handmade glass paperweights and flowers, you can also expect some special valentines surprises for you and your special someone to take home, courtesy of Janke Studios.
