Neon: Shaping Light
Compare offerings and share your lists with others.
Students will be introduced to the history and material as well as 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 as well as learn to blow bubbles and make twists in glass tubes. We will use these techniques to fabricate a self-contained PVC tube neon sculpture, and to safely attach and handle high-voltage transformers to energize their neon project. Everyone will complete a second project of their choosing with consultation with the instructor.
NOTE: this is NOT a sign bending course, creating letters and numbers is NOT covered in this course.
