Ignite Glass Studios, located in Chicago’s West Loop, is a beautiful facility focused on the craft of making art with glass. This stunning medium is unique and precise, and something that most people are less familiar with, making a visit here particularly interesting. The studio offers everything from team building activities, to a viewing gallery, and community outreach to a gorgeous event space!

A visit here would be inspiring any time of year, but this Valentine’s Day, for the fifth year in a row, Ignite will open up it’s workshop for a special glass heart session for couples! Each couple will work with one of Ignite’s artists to create a single glass heart of their own design. Being creative together and collaborating on this special keepsake is the perfect way to spend Valentine’s Day. Additionally, the opportunity to get hands-on with this glassblowing technique is rare, so it will be an amazing memory-making activity!

The actual glassblowing experience will take about 30 minutes, but couples are encouraged to come early and stay after their session to allow for time to socialize with other couples and artists. Complimentary sparkling wine and chocolates will be served as well. Could it get any sweeter? Plan your date night today!
