Neon Workshops at ACAVA Summer School 2013

Between 29th and 1st September 2013 Neon Workshops (www.neonworkshops.com) will travel from their home in Wakefield to set up a mobile studio at ACAVA’s Blechynden St Studios, 54 Blechynden St, London, W10 6RJ.

There are two types of opportunity for artists to access: One Day Intensive and a two day Session.


·   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. At the end of the day everyone takes home a piece of neon they have designed and helped make or directed in making.
·   Date: Sunday 1st September 2013 (Additional date due to popular demand)
·   Fee: £217 per person (The cost includes processing with gas, but excludes wall mount supports (£1 each), electrode sleeves (£1 each) and neon power supply (£65), all available to purchase form Neon Workshops on the day.)


·   A two-hour taster on what neon is, what it can be and how to make it. See glowing examples of neon art explained, expect mesmerising demonstrations of cutting, blowing, stretching, bending and fusing glass with flame, filling with gas and illuminating with electricity. Experience the chance to have a go yourself under tuition and take home the results.
·   Dates: Thursday 29th August 10am – 12pm and Thursday 29th August 2pm – 4pm
·   Fee: £55 per person (If you would like your examples electroding and processing with gas this can be done for an additional charge of £15 per section, neon power supplies can also be purchased from Neon Workshops for £65)
