The Joy Of Neon!
In this one person, individualized workshop you will spend the day learning about the basics of neon lights. We will cover a brief history of neon, its applications, and walk through the steps of creating a neon sign from start to finish. I will demonstrate the processes of glass bending, splicing, and bombarding/filling glass tubes with gas. Participants will have an opportunity to try their hand at glass bending using the crossfire and ribbon burner to make simple bends and abstract shapes. At the end of the day, you will leave with a neon light that you helped make with your very own hands, and a transformer to power it.
$450.00 (includes one small transformer)
This is for folks who already have experience bending neon tubes, but need help with improving their technique or would like to focus on specific areas they find challenging such as circles, welds, text, bending to the pattern, etc….At the beginning of the day, we will discuss your goals so that by the end of our time together you leave feeling more confident to take your bending to the next level.
Workshops take place over the course of one day and are approximately 4 hours. The are a one on one experience which provides personal, individualized instruction. Email me to inquire about scheduling.
