We are making Neon signage with LED's because it's FUN and green. Compared with traditional glass neon signs, neon wall lights are brighter, more beautiful, and are not easily damaged and broken, no noise, safe, and environmentally friendly. Reducing energy consumption is one way to go green. Another is to reduce the amount of toxic materials released into the environment.
I am really excited about sharing this class, and I expect it to fill to capacity who doesn't want to make a neon LED sign. This event is very hands-on but also makes a great meetup because you can learn so much about a person through their creativity. We will start with a little history of neon, lights, and bulb choices. Then we will go through the many steps of the process. Everyone's pace will not be the same, these are just average times.
Avg Time: 10 mins Design
Avg Time: 30 Sketch and determine the amount
Avg Time: 10 Outline sketch
Avg Time: 30 Mark and attach adhesives
Avg Time: 30 Design Stage 2
Avg Time: 45 Power up
The most important things to keep in mind is safety and time. Everyone is encouraged to stay a 6ft distance. All equipment is sanitized before and after classes. I encourage you to have a design in advance. This is a beginner’s course to neon sign making. More like a cheat version, or I should say the safer greener version, with no glass involved.
Get social, get creative, have fun, and collaborate, you'll never know what your creativity can unleash. We mount them on wood and the sizes vary.
Since i'm travelling with this experience seats are EXTREMELY LIMITED
We are setting the mood with personalized neon great music snacks and dranks.
Yes, you will leave with your own Neon LED Sign you made. This class is for 3-4 strips of neon LED Strip at .50m (1.64 feet) a strip. That’s about 5-6 ft total. The strip is 7 mm wide and 15 mm deep if you want to prep your design these are the specs.
The wood size varies, again, if you have a design in mind with the allocated strips please let me know in advance. It may require a higher fee for more strips each extra strip is $9
Unless you're collaborating on a design the use of 2 colors is not permitted right now.
This class is beginners because you will be supplied one power source in this experience, we are doing shapes, initials, or any other small design you can come up with, in order to prevent splitting the tube which requires more tools, planning, and safety measures. You WIIL have to manipulate one tube. Please see the pictures to see what I mean. Any questions please ask here.
The purpose of this experience is for you to learn about the importance of energy conservation. Learn about the transition of Neon Signs from glass to LED, and how you can source and create your own LED signs at home.
We do exactly 2 tests to make sure your sign is lit up. We can test as many times as you feel comfortable. Once you leave the studio I'm no longer responsible for your sign.

Who's down to party, and leave with a sign?
More about LED’s : LEDs are good for both the environment and the bottom line: “Because they’re extremely energy efficient, made of nontoxic materials and offer so much flexibility, there’s never been a better time to go green by upgrading your lighting.”
LEDs also can last up to 25 times longer than incandescent and halogen lights, and up to three times longer than most compact fluorescent lights.
If more people used LEDs it could add up to significant energy savings.Energy.gov estimates that by 2027, widespread use of LED lighting in the U.S. could save the equivalent electrical output of 44 large electric power plants — a total savings of more than $30 billion at today's electricity prices. They also emit little heat, which means less money spent for cooling costs.
The electricity moving through an LED light is directly responsible for putting out the light it emits, with little wasted in the form of heat. By contrast, traditional incandescent, fluorescent and halogen lights waste a tremendous amount of energy as heat. Up to 85 percent of the energy of incandescents is released as heat — meaning you’re using energy to light up the bulb, plus additional energy to cool the surrounding environment to offset the extra heat generated.
LEDs are “green” by their very nature, containing no hazardous materials. LEDs eliminate the cost and worry of proper hazardous material disposal — and help keep further toxic waste out of the environment.
