This course introduces students to the basic skills in the fabrication of neon. Each student will learn to heat, bend, weld, and anneal glass tubing using a ribbon burner, cannon fire, and tipping torch. Students will learn the bending process for the four basic bends. Students will learn to blow bubbles and make twists in glass tubes. They will use these techniques to fabricate a self contained PVC tube-based lighting project while learning to safely attach and handle high-voltage transformers to energize their neon project.
This class runs for two weeks during second session. Another section of the same class is available for two weeks in first session.
