BE A GLASSBLOWER FOR MOTHER’S DAY!

 

Vetro is celebrating Mother’s Day with fire and flame! Join us on Saturday, May 10th as we celebrate the mothers we love and help us do what we do best…play with fire!  Come and assist our glassblowers as they create your hand-blown, glass Flower or Flared Bowl!

Date: Saturday, May 10 – 10:00am to 6:00pm

Pricing: Mother’s Day – Help Make a Glass Flower: $30.00 (plus tax) per flower – Flared Bowl: $55.00 (plus tax) per bowland of course you can make both!

Reservations are NOT needed, required, or will be taken before the event!  Please note that you could wait in line depending on the number of participants.

The Process:

  • Fill out the help-create reservation sheet and choose what you want to make
  • Choose from a selection of 4 color schemes
  • Apply your own color to the molten glass
  • Select the shape of the stem (flowers only)
  • Watch while the artist shapes your Glass Flower or Flared Bowl
  • Pick up your glass artwork the following business day after 3:00 p.m.

Important to Note:

  • Pieces made on Saturday can be picked up after 3pm the following Tuesday or any other day during Gallery hours; the glass pieces must cool for at least 24 hours. The gallery is open Tuesday-Saturday 10am-6pm and closed Sunday and Monday. Vetro will be CLOSED on Mother’s Day – Sunday, May 11th.
  • Due to the nature of glass, there is a possibility that your glass art piece could break or crack during the cooling process. If this happens, one of the gallery employees will call with two different options: (1) one of our glassblowers can re-make the glass art piece and you can pick it up or have it shipped (for an additional fee); (2) you can schedule a time to come back to the Vetro Studio and re-make your art piece!
  • Kids of all ages welcome to observe; under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

What to Wear/Bring:

  • We recommend all clothing to be cotton
  • Long pants recommended
  • Closed-tipped shoes (i.e. tennis shoes)
  • No billowy sleeves
  • Hat or headband
  • Long hair should be pulled back securely
