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).Classes offered are as follows:
    • Stained Glass Mosaics……Pictures, tables, wall hangings, frames, mirrors, even surfboards !! Create stunnng pieces of functional artwork !!
    • Fused Glass/Dichroic Jewelry/Hot Mosaics…..Fused glass is a very interesting and creative process from inception to firing. Plates, jewelry, wind chimes, night lights, cabinet knobs, Christmas ornaments and much more !!
    • Pottery……Enjoy different methods of creating with clay such as building, rolling and coiling.  It is truly enjoyable to create, fire, glaze and refire…the results are beautiful and you can also embellish with glass !!
    • Silk Painting…..Color dyes and wax resist are used to paint on silk.  The results are absolutely breathtaking !! The process of painting is relaxing and intriguing !!

      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.
