The Process:

  • Gallery Check-in at the front desk where you will fill out a Traditional Ornament walk-in form and sign a persistent waiver form
  • Pay at the front desk for your ornaments prior to making
  • Entering Studio you then will be directed into the studio where the glassblowers will call you up as the line processed to Help Create your glass piece
  • You select colors from our Six pre-selected color palettes of glass
  • You apply the colors to the Hot Molten Glass gather
  • Watch the glassblowing artists finish creating your ornament right before your very eyes.
  • Pick-up glass piece the next business day after 3:00 p.m. or have it shipped for an additional fee
  • Kids of all ages are welcome to participate (children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian in the gallery and in the studio at all times).
  • Traditional ornament Help Creates will be taking place during the given dates and times, typically the first hour is a higher traffic volume. We ask in order to have enough time to create your Ornaments that you check-in no later than 30 minutes prior to gallery closing times.

What to Wear/Bring:

  • We recommend all clothing to be cotton
  • Closed-tipped shoes (i.e. tennis shoes)
  • Long hair should be pulled back securely
  • Sunglasses if you are sensitive to light

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 return during another Traditional Help Create Day and Re-make your art glass piece!
