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.
We offer classes and workshops in Lampworking, as well as other art classes. Our shop carries some supplies and tools for Lampworkers and other classes, and work from local artists. Our goal is to provide an affordable and welcoming place for people to share their work with the public. You do not need to make your work in our studio to sell in our shop. We want to be able to show the full range of work that is possible, for people to see not only what we do in our space, but what other people do on their own. We want Lampworking to become a part of your lives, whether it be an occasional workshop, or a main artistic expression.
We hope you will join us, and that you enjoy this as much as we do.
