Arts & DIY
A Firebird instructor will guide you through the process of making an ornament, heart, pumpkin, or bowl. No experience needed! Your glass will be ready the following week.
Firebird Community Arts offers highly personalized ceramics and glass blowing instruction from our warehouse-turned-art studio located in Chicago’s East Garfield Park neighborhood. We deliberately relocated here in an effort to be closer to, and of better service to, the Chicago communities most in need of affordable, high-quality arts instruction and a safe space within which to practice art as a tool for healing.
For us, that means offering arts instruction to people living in a variety of neighborhoods on the South and West sides of the city. It also means bringing people together, who would not otherwise meet, to learn from and connect with one another.
After several decades of work, we have helped thousands of people grow their empathy, work through challenges, find new jobs and see the positive connections between them and those who live around them. Art helps us all heal.

Glassblowing is an exciting artform requiring heat and a singular focus that yields dazzling results. Ceramics is similarly soothing and meditative. With the guidance of experienced art professionals, our workshop and class participants learn how to take a glass or ceramics project from gritty to glossy. All class fees support the goals of Firebird Community Arts. From classes to open studio time to private events, we have an option for you.
