Two Locations to Better Serve You!
Slowfire Studios proudly announces its presence across two Oak Park, IL locations. Our inaugural establishment, Slowfire 1, in the southwest corner of Oak Park on Carpenter Ave, has concluded its chapter. As testament to our thriving community, we have opened our new location Slowfire Grove.
Slowfire Studio on Lombard Street is located within the vibrant tapestry of the Oak Park Arts District. Catering to a wide spectrum of ages, our studio plays host to classes, camps, parties, events, and workshops. Ceramics, painting, drawing and mixed media are all available at Slowfire Studio!
Slowfire Grove, a home located near Fox Park, was created to host a variety of art mediums primarily catering to ages 11+. A cornerstone of our offering at Slowfire Grove are the adult and teen membership ceramics programs. This studio offers high fire ceramics and glazes, as well as an entire handbuilding area, multiple kilns, and a dedicated glazing facility. Slowfire Grove is also home to Chef Ashley's Petal & Moon pastry and baking classes.

What People Say
"My 12 year old son has been taking private and semi-private ceramic classes for nearly a year from Noelle and moved quickly from beginners to intermediate ceramic skills. My son is learning from professional artists that challenge him constantly to explore new techniques. He has learned how to work on the wheel, as well as sculpt. Once a month he has an opportunity to dip/glaze his pieces before they go in the kiln. Perhaps more importantly, ceramics is a place where he can let go of any stress or worries and just focus that one hour on creating. I am so grateful to Noelle and her team!"
