Neon bending course

neon making

8th and 9th of February 2020

£380 for 1 day intensive course

We are so excited to be teaming up with our friends from the Neon Workshop in Wakefield to bring the amazing art of neon light making to Glasgow. Despite it’s modern feel the craft working with neon is listed as Endangered by the Heritage Craft Association!

This is an intensive neon introductory session, taught by expert neon makers. Learn everything from transcribing ideas into neon drawings to filling your glass forms with gas.

At the end of the day everyone takes home a piece of neon* they have designed and helped make or directed in making. This workshop should be seen as a 'neon experience day' rather than a 'neon commissioning day'. The two tutors will do their best in the short intense amount of time allocated to assist you in realising your idea, however be aware competent neon making requires a level of skill only achieved through many hours of practice.

The price includes high frequency neon power supply worth £90. Designs should be kept to a maximum of 1.5m glass tube length.
