Janke Studios - Old Fourth Ward: Three-Hour or Five-Week Glass-Blowing Class at Janke Studios (Half Off)

Glass can be exquisite in its myriad forms, from the ornate windows of a Gothic cathedral to the crystalline webbing of a freshly vandalized windshield. Reflect on beauty with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $75 for a three-hour Cheers glass-blowing class (a $150 value)

On weekends starting at 11 a.m., 3 p.m., or 6:30 p.m., students will be guided through making a coordinating blown-glass wine stopper and a stemless wine glass.

  • $225 for a five-week beginning glass-blowing class, held Wednesday from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. (a $450 value)

Both classes are open to all students aged 13 and older. All materials are provided, and students need only show up wearing long pants and close-toed shoes.

Janke Studios

Matt Janke dreamed of landing the perfect glass-blowing job. After moving to Atlanta in 1986, he realized there wasn't a single glass studio in town, granting his art a ready-made niche. After settling in, he returned to grad school, earning an MFA in glass with the intent to launch his own university program and ultimately procure his own space. By the time he graduated in 1992, Matt further honed his skills, stockpiled equipment, and, in 1996, opened his own studio and hired himself.

Beyond the perks of being his own boss, having his own studio affords Matt a great deal of creative freedom. He infuses all his handblown light fixtures, tumblers, and vases with the prismatic swirls of his signature style, in which precise lines and natural variations vie for attention across undulating surfaces. A downtown gallery space facilitates sales of these works.

But the studio has also fulfilled more than Matt's original goal of finding glass-blowing employment, going on to catalyze a glass-blowing community. From single apprentices in the early days, the studio is now a full-fledged classroom, with space for five instructors, a dozen students, and the kilns that must melt their glass until they each finish their training by capturing and taming a fire-breathing dragon.
