Don’t worry if you can’t make the Extreme Ornament Making Experience. We are still offering our Traditional Ornament Experience Nov 17-Dec 29 for all ages for just $30 per ornament.  No reservations taken (first come, first served).  All details, hours, and news footage from Good Morning Texas in the Vetro studio showing viewers how to make a handblown glass ornament are on Gappa’s blog – click here.

Watch the video below and see how you can be a part of the “World of Glassblowing”

Vetro’s parking lot becomes a Winter Wonderland  during the month of December due to Grapevine’s “North Pole Express”.  If you wish to “Help Make Your Own Ornament” or just browse through the Fine Art Glass Gallery for that “One-of-a-Kind Handblown Gift”, feel free to park behind the Studio on Hudgins Street, or just across Main Street.

On the weekends during the North Pole Express, a shuttle service will also be available.  Once in Grapevine follow the signs to parking areas.  Free shuttles run continuously from the free parking at the Grapevine Convention Center to the North Pole Express.

Free Parking: Grapevine Library 1209 South Main Street Shuttle drops off at the North Pole Express

Additional parking may also be found at American Locker Group parking lot – 815 S. Main Street

For information on the North Pole Express, feel free to visit Grapevine’s website for further information.

    1. Hello Dana,
      Regular type jeans and any %100 cotton shirt. Long or short sleeve is fine and any type of closed type shoes will work.
