Ignite Glass Studios has transformed a spartan West Loop industrial building into a glass blowing studio, educational facility and elegant event space. With its state-of-the-art glass-working environment and flexible spaces, Ignite fosters art-based learning for everyone from under-resourced youth to visiting glass artists. Gallery spaces show a rotating mix of work by those affiliated with the studio. Artisans on staff create a signature line of products-making it a true working studio. With its gracious garden and rooftop deck, Ignite is a distinctive place to appreciate the art of blown glass.

Visitor Experience

See glass artisans in action in the studio and enjoy the ambiance of this unique event space featuring outdoor garden and rooftop deck. As part of the Fall Festival of Glass, guests can purchase or make their own glass pumpkins, on a first come first served basis, for a fee.
