What you'll learn in this glass blowing class:

Bending neon is often compared to a game of chess. Executing the order of bends on a pattern can often prove to be quite the puzzle. In this week-long, introductory neon course, students are invited to challenge themselves by trying to solve the many puzzles that a neon pattern can present. 

Guidance with patterns, basic glass bending and welding techniques, and how to wire neon units indoors will be covered, as well as a demonstration on how the glass tubes are processed to light up. 

This course is designed for the beginner, but can be catered to those with some experience.
