This taster session is run by Richard Wheater, neon artist and founder of Wakefield-based Neon Workshop. You'll discover what neon is, what it can be and how to make it. See glowing examples of neon art explained, expect mesmerising demonstrations of cutting, blowing, stretching, bending and fusing glass with flame, filling with gas and illuminating with electricity. Have a go at creating the basic glass sculpture under tuition and take home the results - your practice piece can be turned into a neon sculpture by Neon Workshop at additional cost and full details will be given during the session.
Event supported thanks to funding from ARTIST ROOMS.
