  • 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 artwork will be created for you. (2) You can choose the same type of art glass piece form Vetro’s gallery; (3) You can schedule a time to come back to the Vetro’s Studio and re-make your art glass 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).

  • No billowy sleeves
  • Long hair should be pulled back securely
  • Sunglasses if you are sensitive to light
  • At this time, Vetro will be requiring all customers to wear a mask within our Studio and Gallery per Tarrant County’s Face Mask Ordinance.  It is our sincere hope to keep you and your family safe while still enjoying the Art of Glass!

Cancellation policy:
