Neon Sculpture Workshop

Neon Sculpture Workshop


Inspired by the The Hepworth Sculpture Prize, artist Richard William Wheater has put together a special day investigating the sculptural possibilities and history of neon in art.

You will spend the afternoon at Neon Workshops in Wakefield, using the facilities to manipulate glass over flame.

You will have the option of taking your results home or paying Neon Workshops to have it processed with your gas of choice and lit with a power supply – making a unique piece of neon art.
