Vetro is celebrating Saint Patricks Day Saturday, March 16. Come join us as we drink Irish Beer and play with fire. If you’d rather just come in and purchase a beer glass to drink some Irish beer out of, then we can certainly make that happen as well. We will have a stock of beer mugs and glasses to purchase if if you prefer. Kids are welcome to assist with the color application! (Great photo op.). Workshop highlights are below.

We invited the 6th grade class to come out to the Glassblowing Studio and be a part of creating a Magical Glass Flower composition. Each of the students helped apply the glass color and melt the colors in the 2,400 degree furnaces. Will Frary, the Grapevine Blacksmith forged these awesome steel stems which we embeded into a large stone base. I am sure Tim Burton would approve! Read more »
