Course Description

Arts & DIY

Explore the exciting world of Glass Art in your own Exclusive Private Lesson. Enjoy 2 hours of Glassblowing at one of the coolest venues in Chicago. Receive 1-on-1 guidance and learn to form molten glass into works of Art. Private Lessons are completely customized to the needs of the student(s).Â

Begin with a brief safety talk and Glassblowing demonstration. Then take turns to design and make your own! Choose from Hearts, Paperweights, Double-Walled Bowls, Flowers, Cups, Hanging Ornaments, Vases, Pumpkins, and more. Typically 2-4 projects can be made in this amount of time depending on how many people are in your group and the complication level of your projects.

The location of this class will be determined based upon your preferred day and time. I am an independent artist and I teach these classes out of a few different spaces. Since the calendars at the studios change from day to day, it's easiest for you to select your day and time, then I will book us a space. Important safety information will be sent to you in an email with the exact address of the studio, but if you need more information before you sign up, just send me a message and I'll get back to you as soon as my hands are free.

Projects will need up to 72 hours to cool properly before they will be ready for local delivery ($10-15), shipping ($15-20), or pick-up (free).




Q: Is it BYOB?

A: Some of my venues are BYOB friendly and some are not. If you prefer a BYOB space just let me know!


Q: Is the price $250 per person or $250 for the whole thing?

A: The price is $250 for the whole lesson. This is the price for 2 hours and it includes 1-4 people. You will need to sign up for 1 person regardless of the size of your group. The cost will always be $250 in total. It's very helpful if you send me a message with an estimate of your groupsize.


Q: How does it work? Does everybody work at the same time?

A: Each person will take a turn making their project and usually only 1 person can make their project at a time. It usually takes about 25 minutes to make each project, with some time for set up and water breaks in between. Usually, each person takes a turn (or turns) making projects until the time is over. I'll make sure each person will get at least one turn. While students are not making their projects, they may help or observe our group, or there may be other artists in the studio to watch as well. (For larger groups we can have 2, 3, or 4 people making projects at one time. We can even "piggyback" the order so that we can accomodate groups of 50+ people in roughly 2.5 hours.)


Q: Can I give this as a gift?

A: Yes. You can sign up and then schedule later by sending me a message. I'll provide you with a private link. If you'd like I'll send you a digital or actual gift certificate for presentation.


Q: Are there restrictions?

A: Anyone under 18 will need to be accompanied by a guardian. Everyone will be expected to follow simple safety rules. (Don't touch this, don't walk backwards, etc) If the guardian understands that the minor will need to try to follow instructions, I'm ok with it. Please send me a message to let me know you are bringing minors. Otherwise, I am completely accomodating to all different limitiations and abilities.Â

This course was amazing. I learned so much and had a wonderful time. The instructor took the time to make sure everyone in the course understood what was going on and was always avilable for questions. I will definitely be taking this course again.
