What you'll do

Interested in fusing glass? This beginner or experienced kiln formed glass fusing experience awaits you. I will instruct you how to create a lighted lantern with 4 glass sides. Each side will be crafted by you. You will first learn the safety requirements, the differences in glass, what firing schedules are and how they are used. You will learn about the many techniques with an overview of what they are. Then you will learn about differences in kilns and glass molds and the many ways to use them. You will move in to learn how to cut glass. You will sketch your ideas on paper and then transform them into your lantern glass pieces. You will choose your glass and components to complete the sides of your lantern. Your project will include all materials and use of tools necessary to complete your project. With your project you will receive hands on detailed instruction, step by step, start to finish and an informational handout for you to take with you. You let your imagine run as you create. Whatever intrigues you is what makes working with glass so fun. My glass studio is located about a 35 minute drive from San Antonio or New Braunfels and about 45 minutes from Austin. The studio is on 90 acres in a very relaxed atmosphere with wildlife views. Come on in, sit back, relax and empower your creativity. Your vision becomes your reality and your lantern to treasure.

My fused glass journey began a little over 10 years ago. I was hooked! I love the art, and the many aspects of glass. Over the past 10 years I have taken numerous glass technique classes to learn, create and be able to share. With each technique the ability to incorporate with another is amazing. I am an award winning glass artist who loves to teach. I am patient, thorough and help to achieve your vision. After taking my class perhaps you will want to start a glass journey of your own. I love connecting with people and helping them create. Working with glass is fun, relaxing and can be therapeutic art. You get lost in your creativity, improve your self-esteem, and relieve stress. My goal is to create an environment where everyone regardless of experience feels like they belong.

Interesting and Fun! We had a great time learning the glass fusing process and then making our panels for lanterns. It was a perfect learning experience and I am looking forward to getting my completed piece. Jannine is friendly, interesting and such a great teacher. She gave me just the right level of assistance and I learned lots of very cool techniques.

Great bargain and great fun! The class was fun and informative and just delightful. We had a great time with Jannine. She is a wonderful instructor- just the right balance of “let me show you how” with “you can do this yourself”. I really felt like I was creating something unique and artful. She had all the supplies and definitely all the knowledge to help you explore the glass craft. I highly recommend this class for any ages.

This experience was a surprise Birthday gift for my girlfriend and everything exceeded our expectations. In addition to having access to a plethora and variety of materials, Jannine took the time to teach us the basics of the different ways to use glass in a creative manner. She even gave us a handout with the information she taught us for future use if we want to continue our "glass journey." I highly recommend this experience if you want to learn from someone who is a master of her craft.
