Neon 101 (September)

September 21st - September 22nd
Caroline LaCava |

Learn how to create your own neon sign or sculpture from start to finish in this two-session intensive workshop. The class will be presented as a series of tutorials focused on designing, glass bending, wiring, and installation, along with a demonstration of how a glass tube is processed and filled with gas to produce light. 

What to Expect: At the end of the workshop each student will go home with their own neon piece. Read more about how to prepare for class on our Registration Info page. 

Eligibility: This workshop is designed for beginners and returning students who need a review and/or guided work session. Open to ages 14 and up.

Pick-up: 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. 

We recommend registering for classes early to reserve your spot! We base materials, and teacher needs off of student enrollment. Early registration not only guarantees your spot in class, but also helps to ensure the class will run. Classes with low enrollment may be cancelled within two weeks of the start date of class. Contact our Registrar of Education, Ari Eshoo, at if you have questions about the class or would like to arrange a payment plan.
