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 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 from 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).
