Neon workshops by roxy rose

All workshop classes will be taught by Roxy Rose Score. Roxy has 44 years of experience of old school neon glass blowing. These classes are not just supervised practice seasons. Roxy is a very hands-on and very attentive to all the students. Our class size is limited to 4 students, Each student will have ample work space (not shared work space) and each will have a designated set of fires. So there is no sharing of crossfires and no rotation of students to available workspaces.(unlike other neon workshops) Which means more time per student in the fires and more real learning time for each student. If you have ever dreamed of making your own neon artwork. Roxy will guide you through the process step by step. Do as simple a design as you like or as complex as you can for that particular class and you will take home a bright, colorful piece of neon art that you will admire for decades.

Introduction into neon glass blowing, a one day class (Saturday 10:00-5:00) max class size 4.
The cost for this class is 300.00

Even though this is beginner class you will learn the basic principles of neon glass blowing. You will be allowed to design your own project. Though I will make the necessary recommendations so that the project can be completed on time.
Each student will be allowed to make one tube. Each student will be given a 6000 volt transformer and electrode caps as well as receive the necessary instructions on how to wire and mount your neon art. At the end of the class I will process all the neon tubes while explaining to the students, the equipment being used and its processing propose. The intention of this class is to primarily have fun while getting an understanding of the basics of neon glass blowing and you get to take home your very own neon art.

Three day intro evening classes. (Tues, Wed, Thur. 6:00-9:00) max class size 4.
The cost for this class is 350.00

This class is basically the same as the one day intro just spread out over three days. Each student will be allowed to design one tube and will receive a 6000 volt transformer as well as electrode caps and misc to mount their tube. (a two week advance cancelation notice is require on this course to receive a full refund)

Two day intensive neon glass blowing class (Saturdays-Sunday 10-5:00) max class size 4
The cost for this class is 500.00

This is our two day intensive class. Structured similarly to the one day intro although I’m going to assume you were interested in the two day class because your goals maybe a bit more lofty and you’re serious about learning this honorable craft. In this class each student will be allowed to make two tubes of their design (with my recommendation) and will be given a 9000 volt transformer. As well as the electrode caps and misc material to safely mount your neon art. At the end of the class I will process the tubes while explaining the equipment and its proposes. For those that so choose I will allow them (under my stick supervision) to process their tubes themselves.(a two week advance cancelation notice is require on this course to receive a full refund)

Out-of-towner 7 day intensive workshop. (Mon-Sun 10:00-5:00) max class size 4.
The cost of this class is 1500.00

This class is designed for those that are traveling from out of town and that are very serious about learning the art of neon glass blowing. This is a very intensive neon glass blowing class. Each student will be allowed to process 5-6 tubes of their own design. You will be given a 12000 volt transformer, electrode caps and misc to mount your neon art. THIS IS AN EXHAUSTING CLASS! I’m not trying to scare you but it is with out a doubt an intensive class. You will be allowed to process your own tubes under my close supervision. The emphasis of this class will be placed on learning the craft. (A one month advance cancellation notice is required to receive a full refund on this course.)

7 day Out-of-towner with equipment. (Max class size 4).
This option will cost 3,750.00

This is the 7 day workshop same as above only with equipment provided to you. The idea here is to provide the student with the equipment that would be needed to start making your own neon at home or in your studio. During the 7day workshop you will be trained on the very same fires you will take home with you after the workshop. This will give you amble time to get aquatinted with your equipment so that there is no figuring out things on your own. Often times I am called to trouble shoot issues for beginner neon students that have purchased equipment but can’t figure out how to use it properly. So you will learn all you need to know about the equipment as the same time you learn to blow neon glass. I strongly recommend this to those that are serious about learning to blow neon glass. (You will receive a five point set of crossfires on a stand. With manifold and hand torch . One 16” ribbon fire on a stand and one blower enough to supply all three pieces of equipment..) the equipment is all used but in refurbished condition. New equipment is simply not available and very expensive if in the rare occurrence it is.
