One-Day Neon Art Immersive
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.
Instructor: Lyle George learned neon from a UCLA extension class in the 1980s taught by Bill Needham. Afterwards, he apprenticed with Designer Neon, Signal Hill Neon and other sign shops until he was hired by the Larry Albright Studio. As Larry Albright's assistant through the ‘90s, he did the neon work for films such as Hudsucker Proxy, Con Air, and Glen or Glenda, to name a few. Currently, he is fabricating neon work for some well-known contemporary international artists.
