What You'll Get

Nestled among New Smyrna’s charming boutiques and specializing in flame-forged glass sculpture, Galleria Di Vetro invites weekend sculptors and amateur artistes into their forge to glean the secrets of the sand-slag sages. Guided by wild-eyed creative types with decades of glass-work experience, Vetro’s variety of hands-on classes cap out at six participants and engage with multiple styles of the medium. Spend a few hours fusing beads, baubles, and pendants for a fashion-forward friend, or work on kilnforming a serving platter for a favorite waiter. Those who despise function over form can give their lungs a workout in a flameworking class, which teaches the bread-and-butter blowing and sculpting skills that every famous glass artist begins with.
Glass classes are held weekdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and on weekends from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (all classes run for the full five hours). Because of the dangers posed by kiln fires, molten slag, broken glass, and sudden rainbows, all participants must sign a safety waiver and be at least 16 years of age.
