Team Treat Neon Workshop

08 January 2013

It was a perfect day with http://www.neonworkshops.com/ in Wakefield, West Yorkshire combining our love of glass with neon lighting. We were educated by Richard Wheater  and Julia Bickerstaff

(http://www.richardwheater.com - http://www.neoncraft.co.uk)

who inspired us with the history of neon and kept us mesmorised with their ability to sculpt glass tubing and intricately work each gas required with scientific expertise into the ideas we each designed for the day.

The workshops are an absolute bargain and so very worthwhile. Most of us had no experience in working with glass at all so it was incredibly eye-opening.

Take a look at our dare devil inspiring day, we chose the "One Day Intensive" course where we all walked away with a piece of neon for ourselves...

The perfect start to 2013.
