Splices: Color Affect + Thin Rothkos

January 28th, 11:00 am – 5:00 pm
Kacie Lees |

Can you feel color? In this beginners workshop led by Kacie Lees, we will focus on the technique of splicing neon tubes together and talk about how color affects our environments, our bodies, and our minds. Splices [aka seals] are a foundational technique in neon fabrication. From Laddie John Dill to Mark Rothko, we will discuss the vibrational powers of color pairings and paint our moods in light.

What to expect: Participants can expect to leave with 1-2 spliced units containing 2-4 colors each. Read more about how to prepare for class on our Registration Info page. 

Eligibility: No previous experience required. Open to ages 14 and up.

Pick-up: Neon tubes will be bombarded during 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.
