Neon Classes

One Day of Neon:
One-Day of Neon at Brooklyn Glass is a concise introduction to the art and science of neon tube making! Students can expect to learn about the components that make a neon tube, the tools needed, and the method to create a spectacular custom light source.

Students can expect to create an abstract piece of neon, using various torches with intimate instruction. In addition, students will learn the bending basics such as splicing, attaching electrodes, double-back bends, right angle bends, and more.

Unlike other neon workshops, our classes are housed within a fully functioning neon shop and neon supply warehouse, allowing us to offer an abundance of materials needed (various colored tubing, power supplies, and hanging materials) on site. Many of our instructors work as full time neon producers and have years of industry experience.

The price of class includes glass, bending materials, one power supply, wiring, and the option to purchase your bending kit at the end of the course.

Neon Bending Boot Camp:
Neon Bending Boot Camp” is an eight-week intensive to neon tube making. Students can expect to learn about the components that make a neon tube, the tools needed, and necessary techniques to create neon.

The course will consist of mastering the foundations of tube bending, designing and creating various neon projects, and learning how to have continuous bending improvement. Students will learn the bending basics such as splicing, attaching electrodes, double-back bends, right angle bends, and more.

Having a weekly bending routine will help the student develop the muscle memory of working with glass tubing. Instructors will work closely with students to help steer them on the right path and teach them to identify what a good bend looks like.

Many of our instructors work as full time neon producers and have years of industry experience.

Students will be provided with a neon bending tool kit to keep for future studio use, and one neon transformer that will light up to 2 small units. Additional transformers can be purchased on site if needed.

8 Week Neon Lettering:
In Brooklyn Glass’s 8 Week Letter Course students will focus on learning the skills required to bend letters and work from a pattern. We will begin by mastering basic tube bending techniques and layout & design preparation in order to move on to bending block letters. Students will also be introduced to post-production work such as wiring, mounting, and hanging a neon sign.

Students can expect to finish three projects over the course of the class-two smaller neon art pieces and one final piece, all designed and bent independently, with assistance from the instructor. This will be an intensive course, beginners and advanced students alike are welcome.

Unlike other neon workshops, our classes are housed within a fully functioning neon shop and neon product warehouse allowing us to offer all the materials needed (various color tubing, power supplies and wiring, and hanging materials) on site, and our instructors are specialized in digital layout design, electrical program, and glass fabrication.

Students will be provided with a neon bending tool kit to keep for future studio use, and one neon transformer that will light up to 2 small units. Additional transformers can be purchased on site if needed.
