What you'll learn in this glass blowing class:

Building on the success of last fall’s groundbreaking Neon Robots class, this new NYC Resistor/UrbanGlass collaboration will teach students how to heat and bend glass tubing to create Neon elements that will be controlled with an Arduino Micro-controller.

At UrbanGlass, the history and methods of Neon tube design and construction will be taught, demonstrated and practiced. With NYC Resistor, we will introduce basic Arduino microcontroller theory, and provide various examples of sculptural interaction, which the student can use directly and as the basis for further exploration.

After the basics are covered, each student will design and execute a light sculpture or design that is responsive to its environment and activated in a variety of manners.  Due to the concentrated nature of this workshop some previous neon experience is recommended. The price of the class covers the cost of one microcontroller kit and one transformer.
