The Campus / Custom Experiences

Located in Avondale, the campus comprises several historic single story manufacturing buildings along the north branch of the Chicago River. Guild Row is so much more than a venue. It's a campus and community crossroads with a culinary teaching kitchen, a woodworking center, a craft/painting/art studio, and metalworking capabilities.
