Finally, after four years of plotting and planning, renowned Los Angeles artist Michael Fletchner heads over to Neon Workshops in September to lead our most ambitious four day neon adventure to date - Animating Neon.


Alongside an varied schedule of bending, shaping and animating light, Neon Workshops will be organising some unique neon-based evening events.


All materials and a power supply for each participant is included in the price.


This will be a tailor made, once in a lifetime opportunity to learn from a heavyweight of the neon world. Spaces are strictly limited to 8 participants.


Flechtner's artwork has a strong tradition of using electronic sequences and mechanized kinetic forms, to playfully move light and physically animate a scene.


No neon experience is necessary.

Please don't hesitate to get in touch with any questions.


No neon experience is neccessary.


Full schedule to be published shortly.
