Neon Green Futures - five day masterclass with Richard William Wheater

Whether as a sign-post retaining nostalgia or a movie prop to project the future, the aesthetic of neon in narrative continues to retain powerful wide appeal. This Masterclass will be driven by Wheater’s methods of using neon as a loaded story telling vehicle. Expect to take your work out of the workshop/gallery space and into the locality. The end result of the class will be less about the object and more the attempt to document a neon-infiltrated environment with perhaps a site-specific neon or action that it plays a role in.

This price includes your transformer and gas of your artwork. No previous experience is necessary but by the end of the day you will take home a piece of neon that you have designed.
