The Process:

  • Gallery Check-in at the front desk where you will fill out a walk-in form Ornament Help Create Form and sign persistent waver forms
  • Pay for your ornaments prior to making them in the gallery
  • Entering Studio you then will be directed into the studio where the glassblowers will call you up as the line processed to Help Create your glass piece
  • You select colors from our Five pre-selected color palettes of glass
  • You apply the colors to the Hot Molten Glass gather
  • Watch the glassblowing artists finish creating your ornament right before your very eyes.
  • Pick-up glass piece the next business day after 3pm or have it shipped for an additional fee

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 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 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).
  • Traditional ornament Help Creates will be taking place during the given dates and times, typically the first hour is a higher traffic volume. We ask in order to have enough time to create your Ornaments that you check-in no later than 30 minutes prior to gallery closing times.
