Fall Family Fun at Vetro Glassblowing Studio & Gallery
Although the Texas weather is finally cooling down, things are heating up this fall at Vetro Glassblowing Studio & Gallery in historic downtown Grapevine. Carve out some fun with your family and join Vetro for seasonal Pumpkin Help-Create events on Fridays and Saturdays in October. Help grow your very own hand-blown glass pumpkin!
If your kids love pumpkin picking and carving, they will love this unique fall experience. Here’s the scoop. Participants get to select from six fabulous fall colors, apply the colors to the hot molten glass gather, and actually heat the chosen colors in Vetro’s 2,000 degree furnace. Vetro’s professional glassblowers then blow and shape the glass into a carefully crafted pumpkin. Older children may participate in the hands-on process, while children under the age of 14 get to sit back and watch the magical method unfold.
Take home your family’s harvest for only $60.00 (plus tax) per pumpkin, and decorate your home with a one-of-a-kind keepsake to remember a one-of-a-kind family experience. Don’t forget to stop by Vetro’s gallery to check out the selection of previously crafted, cream of the crop glass pumpkins, gourds and other decorative items for fall and Halloween.
Friday participants who come dressed in a costume for their event will receive a special treat – and that’s no trick! Take home a colorful, smooth glass shard just for showing us your Halloween spirit.
