Old studio student galleryOur Mission Statement


We are a public access glass arts studio located in the west Humbolt Park neighborhood of Chicago.

Chicago Hot Glass studio was founded in 2001 to provide the resources and  creative environment where everyone from the curious observer, beginning student to the advanced artist can explore, learn, and expand their skills and knowledge of the glass arts.

Chicago Hot Glass provides glass education in glassblowing, glass fusing, kilnforming, and torchworking.

Beyond education, CHG supports local emerging and professional artists with the space and facilities needed for their glass art creations.

Glass artists and enthusiasts are invited to visit our studio and meet our staff of skilled artists, technicians and instructors. Visit us Saturdays and Sundays 9am to 3pm during our open studio or by appointment during the week.
