MORE ABOUT YOUR HOST

Rosey Merkin

Top rated icon TOP RATED

Rosey Merkin is a glass artist and teacher in Chicagoland. With 10+ years of experience, Rosey has worked with all kinds of people in all different places. She does not just make Art and teach people how to make Art. She takes on roles similar to construction workers or therapists. Most people do not realize glass artists build and maintain their equipment, tools, ovens, and furnaces. There is an incredible amount of behind-the-scenes work so that that goes into helping people enjoy the fear and responsibility of working with molten glass.

    Rosey is an EXTREMELY talented and personable person. She walks you through glass blowing step by step and makes sure you feel comfortable with scolding hot materials. She helps you learn the trade from its origin, right down to the nit and grit of hands on glass blowing. Rosey helped me make a stunning gift that I know will be absolutely perfect for my Fathers birthday. If you have any doubts, you shouldnt.

    Rosie was awesome and worked with us one on one to create our pieces! We were able to pick out what we wanted to create and what colors to add. A very hands on experience! I will schedule with her again!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our intro to glassblowing with Rosey. She taught us with precision, care, and good humor, and we got a good feel for this beautiful art form. Highly recommended.

    I have previous glass experience but this was my first time working with Rosey...she was able to meet me where I was at with my learning level and show me new things! Super venue at the firehouse and that was neat because I hadn't worked here before. I will definitely sign up for more glass adventures. You will come away with something special, no matter what you set out to make!
