Scheduled Tours / Groups
Tours for organizations and groups are welcome but need to be scheduled by calling the gallery at 817.251.1668. Guided tours are $3 per person with a $50 minimum. All group sizes are welcome, but groups over 35 or 40 may need to be divided into rotating sessions.
Help us make your group’s visit a positive experience:
- In order to book your event you will have to pay a deposit of 1/2 of the total cost of your event. We ask that you kindly pay the remaining balance when you arrive.
Because Vetro is a fully functioning production studio, we ask that you arrive on time. Late arrivals may need to be rescheduled.
- If you need to cancel for any reason, please provide us with at least 24 hours notice. Should you need to cancel or reschedule, a processing fee of $5 will be deducted from your refund. If you fail to notify us before 10am the day BEFORE your reservation, your payment will be non-refundable. We will NOT be able to reschedule nor provide a refund for no-shows. Alcohol consumption is prohibited during your appointment; intoxicated customers will be canceled without refund.
- If you carry a large bag, backpack or purse, please be aware of your surroundings while near the gallery merchandise.
- Children tend to rise to the occasion. Briefly practicing proper “gallery browsing” prior to your arrival will help ease your nerves. (We love to educate children about art, so they are always welcome!)
- Students (and adults) can use “The Art of Glassblowing” section of this site as well as the Vetro Video Library for learning about glassblowing before arriving and for reviewing what they’ve learned after
- As you will see, the artists work extremely hard. Please consider expressing your gratitude with a contribution. All tips go directly to the studio artists working that particular day.
HELP-CREATE GLASS ARTWORK
Art Glass Experience:
Each participant will help create their own artwork with molten glass. Each attendee will chose 2-3 colors from a selection of several colors for their glass artwork. The glassblowers assisting them will get the first gather of glass. The participant will be able to apply their chosen colors and help reheat the artwork. The last gather of glass and final shaping will be done by the glassblower.
