About the Course

We are delighted to be bringing the Neon Workshop from Wakefield to teach neon making in Glasgow. Despite it’s modern feel, the craft of working with neon is listed as Endangered by the Heritage Craft Association!

This is an intensive one day neon introductory session, taught by expert neon makers. Learn everything from transcribing ideas into neon drawings, to filling your glass forms with gas.

At the end of the day, everyone takes home a piece of neon they have designed and helped to make, or directed in making. This workshop should be seen as a 'neon experience day' rather than a 'neon commissioning day'.

The two tutors will do their best in the short intense amount of time allocated to assist you in realising your idea. However, be aware that competent neon making requires a level of skill only achieved through many hours of practice.

To make bringing the workshop all the way to Glasgow worthwhile, we are running this one day course twice over the weekend.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

We provide all tools, safety equipment and materials you will need. We also set you up with a nice hot lunch on both days.

The fee includes all materials and equipment to leave with a Neon Sign of your own making (approx £140 value)
