Neon: One Day Intensive
Six participants will be taught by two neon makers and learn everything from transcribing ideas into neon drawings to filling their glass forms with gas.
This intensive workshop should be seen as an educational experience rather than a commissioning day. By 5pm everyone will take home a piece of neon they have designed and helped make or direct in the making of. Experience is not necessary.
10am – 5pm (please arrive 9:45am for a 10am start).
Includes 1 hour lunch break, 12:30pm – 1.30pm
Overnight accommodation can be provided with this workshop – please select the WITH ACCOMMODATION ticket from the options below.

Neon Workshops specialise in the development and manufacturing of neon lighting for the creative industry. Organising global shipping and installation of projects, they host an annual exhibition programme of neon related work, as well as a significant resource library on the subject.
Their regular delivery of neon sculpture courses, whether in their home city of Wakefield, or as Mobile Neon Workshops, continue to attract participants from around the world. From their two hour Neon Session tasters (like this one!), to One Day Intensives (like the one tomorrow!), from fun Neon Sundays, to ambitious Masterclasses and adventurous Mobile Neon Workshops, they can offer a range of inspiring and challenging courses to match your passion for neon. Once you’ve had a go it’s hard to stop…so don’t! You can hire their facilities by the hour or day, with materials available on tap.
