Ignite Glass Studios is a state-of-the-art glass studio, educational facility, and event space located in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood. To attract people of all ages and skill levels – from the beginning student to professional artist – we offer a world-class working environment in our Hot and Cold Shops and a wide range of services including group and private instruction, workshops, demonstrations, group team-building events, and professional bench rentals. To enhance our educational mission, we regularly open our doors to school groups for tours and demonstrations.
Our gallery space houses rotating exhibitions featuring the work of renowned glass artists who have helped Ignite grow, the work of our gifted team of resident glass artisans, and pieces from our hand-blown Signature Line.
Ignite also can be transformed into a unique and flexible venue for private, corporate and community events. Our primary space, which is adjacent to the glassblowing studio, can accommodate up to 250 seated guests. We also offer an outdoor garden, a rooftop deck, and a conference room, totaling approximately 9,000 square feet. Ignite’s one-of-a-kind environment is ideal for any special event.
We welcome all glass art enthusiasts – whether they want to create, experience or simply admire – to share our passion for the art and magic of glassmaking.
