Description

Learn the science behind neon gases and high voltage electrical transformers as you are taught how to shape and manipulate glass tubes into letters, shapes, or figures. Bending glass in this challenging course will build hand-eye coordination and concentration skills. The goal by the end of the week is for each student to make one small, working, neon-filled luminous tube that is wired with a transformer. The piece can be taken home or incorporated into other artwork.
