WHAT'S THIS ALL ABOUT?
The Neon Workshops company can usually be found in Yorkshire, but visit London to run special workshops for the Indytute. Set up by artist Richard William Wheater to teach and explore neon as a method of expression, Neon Workshops aim to challenge common expectations of neon and have a dedicated gallery space. Their workshops attract makers, artists, and participants from all over the world.
WHAT HAPPENS IN THIS EXPERIENCE?
You’ll be learning how to make neon! Transcribe an idea into a neon drawing, and learn how to fill the glass forms with gas to make energy saving, 100% recyclable light. This is a beginner’s day course into the art that is neon. No previous experience is necessary and by the end of the day you will take home a piece of neon that you have designed, and assisted in making. The maximum size is anything that can be made from a 1.5m piece of glass. Expect mesmerising demonstrations of cutting, blowing, stretching and fusing. Blow lamps will be provided.
Please Note: You have the option to make the neon yourself but it does take years of practice to get right and is tricky, so one of the tutors will be on hand to make it for you so that you can go home with your design.
THE ALL IMPORTANT DETAILS
This is a one-day course and takes place at The Greenhouse in Stoke Newington (a really cool creative space). The workshop runs four times a year. There are just six people a class so please don't leave it too late to book as this experience always sells out.
Upcoming dates are March 16th & 17th / June 29th & 30th (enough time to decide on your neon sign design!). The lucky recipient can choose their date when redeeming their voucher.
A London experience to make them feel good, an afternoon with attitude or give some time together.
