We will start on Friday afternoon at the neon studio with a walk through of all the tips and techniques. We’ll then break at a local diner for a bit of sketching and then end the day with a guided walking tour of the historic neon signs of San Francisco.
All day Saturday is dedicated to making your letter. You will learn and apply the basics of neon tube bending, structuring, and production along with demonstrations of bombarding, welding, and other cool neon techniques.
By the end of this camp, you will have your very own working neon letter that you designed yourself! Cool, eh?
Due to studio space availability, this camp is limited to only 4 students.
