Who’s looking for a fun interactive activity?! We stumbled upon Vetro Glass Blowers when over in Grapevine last and loved checking out the studio, seeing all of the stunning ornaments and watching people try their hand at making one!
Updated December 2021
Vetro is one part fine arts gallery and gift shop, where you can purchase stunning works of colored glass art, and a second part workshop space where the public can come in and learn how it all works! They even have stadium style seating in front of their workshop for people to wander in and watch the process, even if they don’t want to get involved themselves!
Glass blowing classes are offered on Tuesday’s and Thursdays and can be taken solo or with another student. You’ll learn techniques, see how color is applied, and create your own product like a paper weight, or in the case of the holidays, an ornament, to take home!
Sadly, the ornament classes have all filled up for the season, but mark this post for next year, or sign up for a class anytime of year to still make a fun and useful souvenir!
Vetro also offers team building classes where your group can each make their own object while bonding at the same time! Or you can rent out the space for a private party like a birthday!
Or if you’re instead looking for custom glass work for your home, like a chandelier, art, vessel or installation, Vetro can provide custom quotes for work! And then you can forever tell people that special piece in your home is sourced from a local glass blowing company!
Make sure to drop into the studio to browse and watch the glass blowers at work - it’s really fun to see, and led to us learning something new and now sharing it out with y’all! We only wish we’d done so before the ornament classes sold out, but again, make sure to note for next year!!
