Forge a Silver Ring with a Silversmith
At this time, I am requiring all guests to be fully vaccinated *and boosted* against COVID-19 by the time of their workshop and to provide proof of vaccination. In this workshop, you'll make a sterling silver ring through the silversmithing "fabrication" technique. Learn the basics of texturing metal, forming metal with mandrels and hammers, soldering (yes, you'll play with fire!), and decorative finishing and leave with a beautiful handmade ring that will last a lifetime! This is not just some craft project. You will be working on the same tools that I use myself as a professional silversmith and your ring will be professional quality. It's always a fun evening! You'll be floored by what you can create! Other things to note: You will get plenty of ideas for rings during the class. I also encourage you to look at the photos in this experience as well as guest photos for ideas!
Explore Dazzling Architecture Interiors of the Chicago Loop
Take the architecture tour voted #1 by TripAdvisor users! We will be taking a leisurely 2-hour walk exploring some of the most beautiful and often overlooked buildings in downtown Chicago, both outside and inside, and learning about the most important and interesting parts of Chicago's architectural history. Visitors often don't know where to go, or even where they're allowed. This experience takes them inside places they'd never even consider, to show off more than 100 years of architecture as it developed here in the Windy City -- including stunning stained glass, atrium-like spaces, 19th century skyscrapers, and more! Great tour for photographers and travel buffs! Some things to note: Bring a camera -- this is an AWESOME way to practice your architecture photography! Also, dress for the weather, and if it's raining, bring an umbrella. Also, please note that if you provide a non-US phone number as your day-of contact number, we **CANNOT** call you if you're lost or late!

Glassblowing: Make Your Own Pendant
Lampworking (also known as torchworking) is basically miniature glassblowing. Each student will work on their own torch to create a unique and stylish pendant. I'll explain the safety rules and show you how to make the project, then I'll help you make yours. This class is listed for a specific time, but I'll gladly schedule your session anytime upon request. Just send me a message that you want to make pendants with a preferred day/time. Other things to note: Some people don't want a pendant, and so they choose to make theirs into a zipper pull, suncatcher, or lightswitch pull. Students must be fully vaccinated against covid 19 for at least 2 weeks prior to class or show negative results from a rapid results test for covid 19 within 72 hours prior to class. Students must sign waivers. Wear natural fiber clothing (cotton) and closed toe shoes. There is a washroom where you may change, and we do sell tshirts. Ages 7+ must have guardian sign waiver if under 18. Accessible and friendly space. You can expect it to be at least 10 Degrees (F) warmer inside the studio than outside.
Chicago Food Tour- Deep Roots to Deep Dish
City in a garden. Culinary paradise. From hot dogs to haute cuisine, this walking tour of the Loop is for all foodies and anyone wishing to get to know Chicago through their stomach! The Loop is the perfect spot to experience this fast-growing food scene, where locals lunch while enjoying the city’s architecture or dining under city lights that illuminate the nearby Chicago River at night. It’s the vendors and their passion for food that we’ll focus on in this neighborhood: you’ll come to appreciate the melting pot that the city has truly become, giving us the opportunity to enjoy recipes lovingly honed by generations of immigrants. Italian, German, Polish…you’ll be amazed to discover the cultural depth behind otherwise ordinary (and tasty) Chicago staples! While your local guide will treat you to some decadent deep dish pizza and other classic Chicago favorites, they might also share a seasonal offering with the freshest ingredients, perhaps even sourced by local farms. If there’s any room for more, we’ll top off your tour with a sweet snack and send you off with more recommendations for where to eat, drink, and play in this incredible city!
