Additional Information

Description

Vetro Glassblowing is firing up its furnace for the fall season. Celebrate this fall with fire, flames and pumpkins. Bring your whole family to these Help-Create Pumpkin events, an interactive experience fun for adults and kids ages 12 and older. Come one, come all, and experience how to create a pumpkin from hot molten glass!  You may sign up for your choice of 1 to 11 participants for the pumpkin create for the desired time you would like to come. Two participants at a time partner with two talented Vetro Glassblowers to help create your very own glass pumpkin.

Please have everyone in your group arrive 15 minutes prior to the pumpkin create you registered for.  If you need to register more than 11 people, simply choose the next hour and the number of slots you need for everyone in your group.  Feel free to stay and watch the other artists in the hot shop, or view the glass pumpkin creations that your Vetro Glassblowing instructor has created.
