The Process:

  • Gallery Check-in at the front desk where you will confirm your online reservation and sign participant waiver forms
    Entering Studio you then will be directed into the studio where the glassblowers will call you up in the order you have signed in in the gallery and by your online booked time slot
  • You select colors from our entire color palette of glass
  • You apply the colors to the Hot Molten Glass gather
  • You heat the colors in the 2,000-degree furnace (14+ yrs)
  • You stay by the artist while he/she blows out the ornament and adds a glass hook
  • Pick-up glass piece the next business day after 3pm or have it shipped for an additional fee
  • Kids of all ages are welcome to participate (children under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian in the gallery and in the studio at all times).

 

 

 

 

Please Note:

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, we have three different options:

(1) You may choose out of the Help Create color mixes and your art work will be created for you.

(2) You can choose the same type of art glass piece from Vetro’s gallery.

(3) You can schedule a time to come back to the Vetro’s Studio and re-make your art glass piece!
