Students will get into the flames and develop familiarity with the three key bending techniques utilized to construct any lit piece. We will make soft curves with the ribbon burner, right-angle bends on the crossfire, and create splices by joining together two pieces of tubing. This immersive day walks you through the entire process from glass to glow and each student will head home with an experimental work produced by their very own hands. For ages 21+
Instructor: Kacie Lees first learned neon while studying sculpture and video at The School of the Art Institute in Chicago. Lees received her MFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York in 2012 and now teaches Neon Techniques all over the country (SAIC in Chicago, MoNA in LA, Brooklyn Glass in New York & Western Neon School of Art in Seattle). Light and the intangible are common themes in Kacie’s work and she uses neon to explore them both.
