What you'll learn in this glass blowing class:

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 and wiring. Neon units can take up to 2 weeks to be pumped, all neon units must be tagged with the following information: name, email, date and what gas is to be filled in it.


Q: What if I'm unable to come back to collect the finished pieces?

A: You can pay to have the items shipped to you.

Question from Anonymous
Hi, I'd like to be able to make a sign kind of like this: the exact details of the shape aren't important, but I'd really like to make a sign that reads "Xe". Do you think that would be possible in this course? Also, do you get to pick which gasses you dope the neon with?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! The student cannot create this in a one day class. You will have to take an eight-week lettering course if you would like to make anything with lettering. Students make abstract neon sculptures in our one day class. Hope this helps!
Question from Melle B.
How many seats per class?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Melle! The average class size is 10.
Question from Tara Z.
Can two people work together under one cost?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Tara! The price is per student, so you would need to purchase two seats. Hope this helps!
Question from Shannon C.
Hi - Can I leave class with a single tube of light? E.g. a light rod I would like to just prop up on the floor.
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hello, Shannon! Thanks for your question. Tubing is typically 10-12mm diameter and 4 or 5 ft long without bends. One project will be taken home per student. Hope this helps!
Question from anonymous
Hi! I want to end class with a simple neon tube of light that I can use in my home. Is this possible? How large?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! Yes, you can leave with whatever shape you want. The purpose of the class is to bend the tubing and learn these bending techniques are applied to neon sign making, but you are the artist, if you want a straight tube, you can make a straight tube! Hope this helps!
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Tubing is typically 10-12mm diameter and 4 or 5 ft long without bends. One project will be taken home per student.

Question from anonymous
By the end of the class, is it possible to make a neon sign that is a 5 letter word?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hey there! Making letters or other precise images in neon require more experience and practice than the student will get in a one day class. If you are interested in learning how to bend neon into letters, you may check the 8 Week Neon Letter class here: Hope this helps!
Question from Anonymous
Hello! I’m interested in the class but I’m moving away to France shortly. Will the neon be able to work on 220V-50Hz? Thanks in advance.
Answer from Kristle C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! A 220v transformer must be used in this case, however, you will have to use her own European transformer.

Such a great class. Super hands on, interesting and at the end, you walk away with a working neon light. So great. Highly recommended!

Very fun class- thought it was a good intro to help you decide if it's something you might want to pursue further. It was structured very nicely - never felt too rushed. Loved that we got to take home an abstract neon piece and learned some basic bends and techniques.

I wasn’t able to attend the class due to an emergency and let them know day of. While this is completely my fault, it would be nice to be able to receive a discount off my next purchase of the same class, as I would still love to attend!
