A bit of history about our studio:
Shatter Glass Group is Chicago's first glass blowing school. We opened in 1987 headed by Lance Friedman and have been running classes non-stop since that time. Before any studio that followed, we already had maestros from Italy and international students visiting and working at our facility.
Shatter Glass Group is located in the Avondale / Logan Square area on Chicago’s Northwest side. We are situated in a safe well lighted residential area with plenty of on-street parking and great restaurants nearby .
So why choose us over any other glass school in Chicago?:
The answer is we believe that each student is an individual, with individual needs, and we teach each session with that in mind. You won't find yourself
in a large group because education has always been our mission. While we
will take on larger classes, our teaching model is about private classes with one-on-one or one-on-two instruction.
Whether you're a beginner looking purely for a unique experience, or
seek more advanced skills in glass, we customize our classes for you.
(We specialize in taking advanced glassblowers and trouble shooting their
technique). Whatever your expectation for your class, we will endeavor to
meet or exceed it.
We are not the newest or the largest studio in Chicago, but we have run continuously for 30 years and are proud of our students who have become glass artists in their own right. Finally, we are the glass facility headed by Lance Friedman, an artist who has taught internationally and whose work resides in the permanent collections of the Corning Museum of Glass, the Tacoma Museum of Glass, and many other museums and collections worldwide. No other instructor in Chicago can make that claim. The best part is you get to work with Lance directly. For more about Lance please visit: www.lancefriedmansculpture.com
