Wednesday & Thursday 12-8
Everlasting Fire Studio is an open to the public glass studio in the Lincoln Square neighborhood. We offer a variety of art classes with our main and primary focus in Lampwork Glass. Lampworking is an ancient, but often unknown form despite the fact it is often something you have encountered. We melt glass rods at what is called a Minor Burner torch and create beads, marbles, and small sculpture work. The goal for our studio is to create a place for anyone to come in and watch, learn, and shop.
For Lampworkers, we offer a place to come in to learn and experiment where Lampworking is the focus of our studio, and allow you to try new things and be innovative. We want to bring Lampworking to the public in a way that creates a true community here in Chicago. We are the most open public access studio, and hope to find many more people eager to learn something new.
Our studio offers classes in both soft glass and borosilicate. You can learn to make a variety of beads, marbles, pendants, and sculpture work in our varying skill level classes. We have plenty of options for those with no experience! And after you take classes you can come in and work independently. We are always willing to talk ideas, and figure out how to get you where you want to go. We want Lampworking to become a part of your lives, whether it be an occasional workshop, or a main artistic expression.
Think about us for your next outing. We also carry work in our small retail space, so you can enjoy local work while you're here, and maybe snag a great gift for someone.
We are located on the west side of Lincoln Avenue, just south Winnemac. Major streets around us are Foster, Western, and Lawrence.
