This course introduces students to the history and basic skills of neon lighting and its fabrication. 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 and 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 and to safely attach and handle high-voltage transformers to energize their neon project. (Note: this is not a sign bending course -- creating letters and numbers is NOT covered)
