Event Overview

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. This class costs $330, which includes 1-3 students. Private Lessons are completely customized to the needs of the student(s).  


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 the projects.

FAQ's:


Q: How many people will be in the class?


A: You may have up to 3 people in your group. So, if you purchase 1 seat in this class for $330, you may bring 1 or 2 guests to participate. (guests who just want to watch are also welcome). What you are paying for is 2 hours of glassblowing, regardless of how many people attend. If you want the entire 2 hours for yourself, I will completely understand because it flies by pretty quick. If you are sharing your session with 1 or 2 guests, everyone takes a turn to make a project and then we use up any additional time making extra projects for the entire 2 hours. You may add students to your group for $82.50 per person. 


 


Q: How do I add more people to my group?


A: For groups of 6 or less: if you see the date and time you want, sign up for it and complete the payment. You can add guests to your group by sending me a message. I will open a private link for you to share where only you or your guests can sign up. Each student that you add will extend the session by 20-30 minutes. I will make sure that each guest gets a turn to make a project. Lots of times we can still do this in 2-2.5 hours, but sometimes we do go up to 3 hours.


 


Q: How do I schedule a private lesson for more than 6 people?


A: Please message me asap for scheduling and to arrange a private link for your group to use. We have a beautiful and lively space that is great for groups and small parties. Cater or BYOB. We have modules for ceramics, torchworking, and fusing.


  


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


A: Usually only 1 person can make their project at a time, since I help individually with each project. 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 a small number of other artists in the studio to watch as well. 


 


Q: What are you doing to keep us safe from COVID-19?


A: Nobody really puts their mouth on the tools to blow up the glass anymore. The tools are stainless steel and we clean them with alcohol. We are hypervigilant about cleanliness with the tools. You may choose between a hose with an individually wrapped disposable mouthpiece, or a little hand pump to inflate your projects. I am offering the option to make a variety of solid projects which do not need to be blown up at all. Wearing gloves is not recommended for this activity. Handwashing station, wash room, water bottles, and hand sanitizer are all provided. All tools and heavily used surfaces are cleaned and disinfected between each student and regularly throughout the day.


***All students must be able to provide proof that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 for at least 2 weeks prior to class time or show negative rapid test results within 72 hours before class start time.***


Masks are worn in the studio and social distancing is practiced. Just like in a restaurant, we ask that you arrive masked, and when it is your actual turn to blow up your project, you may take off your mask. I keep my mask on. There may or may not be other people working in the studio at the same time, but we each have our own areas. So, if they are unmasked they are meant to be at least 6ft away. Due to the nature of glassblowing the entire building is strongly ventilated. 


 


Q: What should I wear ?


A: Everyone must wear closed-toe shoes. It is extremely reccomended that you wear natural fiber clothing, such as cotton or linen. Most people wear jeans and a t-shirt, or similar. Polyester and Acrylic outfits are not reccomended. Long hair will need to be pulled back. We sell cotton t shirts and there is a washroom where you can change. Contact lenses are not reccomended for this activity because glass dust could get stuck behind them. If you wear glasses, that is enough eye protection for this activity. I provide clear plastic safety glasses to everyone else. Keep in mind, the studio is drafty because of the ventilation. You are always welcome to warm up by the fire and during your turn you might feel very warm. You may want to wear or bring a long sleeved shirt if you run cold.


 


Q: Is it BYOB?


A: Some people bring snacks or a beverage to enjoy responsibly towards the middle or end of their session. You could have food delivered or catered. We have a fridge and anything unopened will be accepted by the artists on duty. Message me if you need me to provide something specific like champagne and chocolate strawberries, deep dish pizza, etc.


  


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 the presentation.


 


Q: Are there restrictions?


A: Everyone will need to sign a waiver. Anyone under 18 will need to be accompanied by a guardian to sign their waiver. Everyone will be expected to follow simple safety rules. (Don't touch this, don't walk backwards, etc) Please send me a message to let me know you are bringing minors. Otherwise, I am completely accommodating to all different limitations and abilities. We are a "all are welcome" space, so just shoot me a message if you want me to know ahead of time that you might need any accommodations.


 


Q: When does registration for this class close?


A: The registration for each class closes 24 hours before it's start time. If you wish to schedule after that time, please send me a message, and I will gladly try to accommodate your request. This allows me to ensure that the equipment is on and ready.


 


Q: Can I bring a friend? 


A: I very much prefer each student to be registered at least 4 hours before the start time of their session. If that did not happen and you want to bring someone, that's OK, we can get them registered when they show up. If your friend just wants to watch, that's OK too. It is helpful if you give me some kind of message to let me know. Again, this allows me to ensure that the equipment is on and ready.


 


Q: Will this class be cancelled due to unfilled enrollment?


A: No. The minimum for this class is 1. So, if you sign up and pay for it, you do not need to worry about it being cancelled on you for this reason.


 


Q: What's the best way to get there?


A: Firebird Community Arts is at 2651 W Lake street, Chicago, IL 60612. 


For public Trans: the closest el is the California Green Line stop. We are between Western/Lake and California/Lake


For drivers: We have easy and free street parking on Lake street. We also have a free small gated parking lot. If you wish to park in the lot, drive up to the mailbox and ring the buzzer 1 time. We will come and buzz open the gate so you can drive in. Fine print: We are really hard to find! Please look us up on google maps so you know what to expect. The studio is on Lake street and running above lake street is the elevated train. This confuses navigations systems and google will omit the name of Lake street when it's time to turn there. It will just say "turn" but not tell you on Lake street. So it's good to understand you will be driving with the elevated train tracks directly over you. Driving on Lake street is scary, kind of like in the movie batman. The lanes are narrow and there are huge posts at the edge of the lanes. Don't panic! You are looking for a gray cinder block building that is covered in colorful murals. Slow down so you can turn in through the posts at our entrance. The entrance is on Lake street. (PLEASE don't go through the alley.) Everyone needs to be buzzed in by the Firebird Community Arts Mailbox. Again, it's on Lake street, directly under the elevated train tracks. Please press the buzzer 1 time. Most of us have our hands full so seriously, please just buzz 1 time and wait up to 30 seconds or even a minute.

    When I travel for business and know that I will have some free time, I often look for interesting experiences. I was glad to discover Dabble as a way to support that habit.

    I took some glassblowing classes at home starting 20 years ago and have managed to take a few more on trips to different cites.

    Rosey Merkin is a good teacher. I brought two friends who were new to glassblowing and she explained things clearly to all of us. She was patient and clear with her directions. We were sharing the studio space with others and she made sure that we understood when to stay out of the way.

    All three of us enjoyed the lesson and are looking forward to seeing our finished projects.

    I was careful to not get ahead of myself simply because I had some prior experience and Rosey was willing to work with me on a slightly more advanced second piece. I appreciate that very much.

    I get to Chicago on business every few years at least and will keep Dabble and Rosey in mind on future trips.

    I wholeheartedly recommend her class.

    We loved our glassblowing class with Rosey and will be taking more! She was very patient and kind and the experience was very cool. For future students just know the location is in a grey warehouse type building, you must ring the buzzer outside to open the gated parking lot attached. Also this is an urban location for those visiting from the suburbs. Grateful for a parking lot.

    My wife and I took the glassblowing workshop from Rosie Merkin. Rosie was very professional and thorough in explanation, putting us at ease amongst furnaces and molten glass. She patiently walked us through everything, giving both of us the opportunity to complete a vase and a bowl, respectively. Very hands on and very cool.

    My sister and I had a fun and memorable time glassblowing with Rosey. She was knowledgeable, friendly, and safety-minded. She made what could be an intimidating process very clear and doable by letting us know the next steps to expect, what adjustments we need to make, what NOT to do, etc. We were each able to make 2 items with Rosey and also take home her demo project. This is such a unique opportunity to create art - I would encourage anyone to give it a try!

I can’t say enough good things about her and her class. Rosie is a great teacher who might I add is super sweet with so much patients and knowledge. She is a wonderful person to work with and made things so enjoyable and easy to understand. She lets you get to it and she makes sure you have fun and also makes sure you are safe. She went above and beyond and even gave us pointers on good places to see after her class! If you are looking into trying it just go for it! I would recommend her class for anyone who wants to try glass blowing. You won’t regret it! Give her a try! She will make sure you come home with something beautiful! We will be back!
