In this two hour taster session you will learn what neon is, what it can be and how to make it.
See glowing examples of neon art explained, expect mesmerising demonstrations of cutting, blowing, stretching, bending and fusing glass with flame, filling with gas and illuminating with electricity. You will experience the chance to have a go yourself under tuition and take home the results.
Neon Workshops specialise in the development and manufacturing of neon lighting for the creative industry. Organising global shipping and installation of projects, they host an annual exhibition programme of neon related work, as well as a significant resource library on the subject.
Their regular delivery of neon sculpture courses, whether in their home city of Wakefield, or as Mobile Neon Workshops, continue to attract participants from around the world. From their two hour Neon Session tasters (like this one!), to One Day Intensives (like the one tomorrow!), from fun Neon Sundays, to ambitious Masterclasses and adventurous Mobile Neon Workshops, they can offer a range of inspiring and challenging courses to match your passion for neon. Once you’ve had a go it’s hard to stop…so don’t! You can hire their facilities by the hour or day, with materials available on tap.
