Thanks to the legendary Gods Own Junkyard, Walthamstow has become somewhat famous for its neon art, so we decided that it was time to continue the tradition and learn the secret art. We’ve invited Neon Workshops down from Wakefield for a special one day beginner’s course.
This is your chance to transcribe your ideas into neon drawings, and learn how to fill the glass forms with gas to make energy saving, 100 percent recyclable light. You’ll design your sign in the morning and transcribe your design into a real life sign. You can make anything out of one piece of 1.5m neon.
The cost of the course includes your transformer and gas of your artwork. No previous experience is necessary but by the end of the day you will take home a piece of neon that you have designed. You have the option to make it yourself or the neon tutor can help you as its tricky for novices.
Neon Workshops specialise in the development and manufacturing of neon lighting for the creative industry. Check out more at their website www.neonworkshops.com.
Please note that we require one month’s notice for a full refund or cancellation.
