My Kind Of Venue: The Alternative Event Space, Ignite Glass Studios

This week, Amazing Edibles would like to introduce to you Ignite Glass Studios, a fabulous alternative space where you can also learn about the fascinating art of glassblowing.

Widely known as a Chicago wedding venue since its opening in 2012, Ignite Glass Studios has built their reputation as a modern and urban dream wedding space for many couples. The building consists of three event spaces: the Main Event Space, the Urban Garden and the Rooftop. Each space can comfortably host more than 200 guests reception style.

Featuring neutral brick walls and glass windows to fill the room with light, the Main Event Space is so versatile that you can pick any color of decorations you want, from elegant shades of white to darker more colorful hues. The other two spaces are perfect for spring and summer events. From the Rooftop, you can embrace the Chicago skyline while enjoying a glass of wine with your friends and family, or enjoy their amazing glass art installations in their Garden.

Moving away from the wedding and special event space for a second, let's talk about why Ignite Glass Studios is named an innovative special event venue!

Ignite is composed of two studio spaces: the Hot Shop and Cold Shop. If you're like me and had no idea what those mean, just know these studio spaces make Ignite a state-of-the-art glass studios and production facility.

If you're looking for an alternative activity for your family, friends, or even your office team, check out what Ignite Glass Studios offers. You can host a private event or sign up for a private lesson to be "exposed first-hand to the beauty and intensity of glassblowing". There are different activities you can sign up for. Whether you just want to watch or actually roll your sleeves up and do it, you can!

Ignite Glass Studios also offers team building events for your corporate group as well. In case you didn't know, blowing glass is a highly collaborative art and requires teamwork, which makes it a perfect team building activity. Your team can be divided into groups of 2, 3, or 4 to manipulate molten glass to create an amazing final product. How great is that!

Beside the adorable swan piece above, Ignite Glass Studios also offers many glass pieces that can enhance your events such as wine stoppers, champagne flutes, glass flowers, vases, and bowls.

It doesn't matter what your interest is, you will always have a blast coming to Ignite Glass Studios, either to create a glass masterpiece or simply to enjoy the Chicago skyline. Check out the venue if you're interested in having fun!

Until next time, live well and eat amazing! - Amazing Edibles
