What You’ll Do

The bonds of familial love are among the strongest in the world, so forming new bonds—even with glass—is a particularly appropriate way to spend Father’s Day. Chicago Glass Collective’s Leslie Speicher puts the power of intense heat in your hands in her two-hour class, helping you prep trinkets as unique as your own fingerprints, or the fingerprints of your dad. The class can be taken by aspiring glass artists ages 10 and up, provided there’s a parent or guardian nearby to lend a watchful eye and admire the young one’s handiwork.

  • Cutting and Kilns 101

  • Sculpt a coaster

  • Take Your Creation Home
    Pick up your finish piece in one to two weeks.


Your Host

Leslie Speicher
Owner, Chicago Glass Collective

Leslie Speicher’s art has taken her all over the country: teaching and studying in Seattle and Brooklyn, earning an MFA from the University of Illinois, showing her work in Miami and Philadelphia, and even mounting a solo show in Chicago’s Museum of Surgical Science. While her travels impress, it’s her current home that might have the most appeal. As the owner of Chicago Glass Collective, Spreicher can work and teach all in the same place, helping students to master the art form she cherishes in her very own studio.
