Learn how to create your own neon sign or sculpture from start to finish in this 8-session workshop. The class will be presented as a series of tutorials focused on glass bending, designing, wiring, and installation, along with a demonstration of how a glass tube is processed and filled with gas to produce light. This course is designed for the beginner, as well as the returning student who wants a review and/or guided work session.
What to Expect: Bombarding and electrode attachment for 6 units of neon are included in this class, as well as a transformer (power) and wiring kit. Past 6 units, students will be charged for electrode attachment and pumping at these rates. Read more about how to prepare for class on our Registration Info page.
Eligibility: No experience required. Open to ages 14 and up.
Pick-up: Neon tubes will be bombarded during the weeks of class, so students should leave with finished units of neon. Should processing take additional time, students will have to return to UrbanGlass once notified to pick up their work.
This is an in-person class taking place on-site at UrbanGlass. Health and safety guidelines will be emailed to you upon registration.
