Intro to Glow

April 4th - April 5th
James Akers |

Learn the basics of bending glass tubing using commercial neon bending technology. We will use clear glass and a selection of noble gases to craft luminous sculptures in any linear shape! Students can choose to stick to traditional flat signs, or jump off of the paper and create three dimensional glowing drawings. Expect to leave with a new way of thinking about light! No experience required.
