Glassworks Studio

La Peñita de Jaltemba


More Information
  • Glassworks Studio started out as simply a stained glass shop – a place for you to get your custom designed windows and doors. However, Glassworks classes, over the years, has developed into a creative work space for many of the residents and visitors of Guayabitos and La Peñita and even areas beyond. It is a space where friendships are made and amazingly creative work come alive! No experience is necessary. People who claim they are not creative, well, they usually have to eat their words! (and do so quite happily).

    We offer classes in stained glass mosaics, fused glass techniques , stepping stones, clay and dichroic jewelry. The Stained Glass Mosaic Class is a one-month session which consists of two days a week for 4 weeks (total of 8 classes). Introduction to Fused Glass Techniques is a two-day class. Fused glass workshops are held once a week for the artists who have already taken the introduction to fused glass and its their time to create. Stepping Stone Mondays is a one day class in which you can complete a stepping stone from start to finish. Our clay workshops provide instruction in creating many different functional pieces, decorative pieces and molds for glass fusion.

    Of course, we still offer custom designed stained glass windows and light fixtures. We have a complete selection of glass colors and textures available. We will come to your home to measure and bring books of ideas to get your mind going. After the visit, I go back to the studio and custom design your work of art. You can come to the shop to see your work in progress, and we come and do the install.

      If you are fortunate enough to have the time to take one of Jo's classes " Treat Yourself " !!!! Jo is an amazing talented artist who offers private and group classes. Allow your imagination to bloom in her studio of colors and contrasts. Or if you are looking for a unique custom piece for your home Jo can deliver ...

    2. :

      Joe's classes are excellent. She provides a broad array of material, technical support and ideas to help stimulate creativity. I was also able to make a lovely window for my home at minimal cost! Highly recommended. And if you think your not creative or an artist, you may have not found your medium. Glass is forgiving.
