Master the Art of Neon at Glas
Take a step into Glas, the fancy factory and brain child of Nate Sheaffer, and you enter a neon wonderland. Sign up for a class to learn the love language behind blowing beautiful neon signs.
"Our neon glassblowing classes provide insight and experience into a world of unique, high-skilled craft and design: well-suited for the beginner/enthusiast and the seasoned design professional/artist alike.
Have you been drawn to a piece of neon and wondered how it's possible to capture and manipulate such radiance and beauty inside a piece of glass? If you are smitten by neon and want to learn its history as an advertising medium, and then design and build your own piece of neon, sign up for the next round of neon workshop classes and get busy.
Learn the science behind neon's discovery as an advertising medium and its rich history influencing modern art and architecture and decide what type of influence will inform your project's direction.
You'll become adept at reading the language of bent neon tubing, designing a piece of art or retro advertising of your very own. From the first session, you'll be introduced to the materials and methods of glass blowing for neon tubing, trying your hand at manipulating hot glass—bending it to your will.
Instruction in glass blowing, safe fabrication practices, mounting and wiring final assembly of your designs is all part of the course." - Glas
