Atlanta’s finest purveyor of all things glass is here to help you celebrate St. Paddy’s Day in artistic style this year. Since arriving from Ohio 20 years ago, Matt Janke and his team at Janke Studios have been crafting beautiful and unique glass pieces for everything from corporate clients, private homes, and art installations, and now they’ve got a brand new workshop where you can learn the art of glass blowing yourself in a fun, intimate setting. In the St. Paddy’s Day Hot Glass Class you’ll learn the skills and methods needed to create two different glass art pieces that you’ll get to take home with you. First you’ll craft a decorative flower by infusing clear molten glass with different shades of broken green glass and then forming a flower using a variety of shaping tools and techniques. Then you’ll be taught even more skills as you learn how to make a shamrock paperweight that can be used to add some St. Paddy’s Day cheer to your home or workspace for years to come.
After your glass creations are complete, they’ll be placed in the oven to cool overnight, after which your creations will be made ready for pick up or shipping. You, your classmates, and your instructors will enjoy some celebratory drinks and snacks courtesy of Janke Studios. In the spirit of the holiday, you’ll be treated to St. Paddy’s Day specific refreshments like Irish beer and decorated cookies and candy. Also, in addition to your handmade flower and paperweight, you’ll be sent home with a St. Patrick’s Day goody bag full of Janke Studio surprises. The workshop runs for two hours and takes 8 people per class, so grab some friends and get ready to celebrate St. Paddy’s in one-of-a-kind fashion!
