Neon Date Night

Neon Date Night is an extraordinary beginner class specifically designed for couples (or best buds) seeking a unique and electrifying experience. You will leave the class with your very own custom neon sign and a whole new appreciation for this endangered glass art form. 


"Hex Neon was amazing.  I needed a custom neon sign made last minute and they totally came through with incredible design, and on time. Great to work with, and would highly recommend."

The Process

Every neon sign that exists was made by a team of skilled craftspeople.

While each shop has their particular style, the process has not changed much since it began in 1920. We take colored glass tubes and bend them with heat, a little bit of air, and complex levels of manual dexterity. A metal electrode is spliced at each end and the tube is filled with one of a variety of harmless noble gasses. To bring it to life, an electric current excites the gas in the tube, causing it to emit that luminous color beloved the world over. We believe neon is part of our American cultural identity. Rather than let this identity fade, we believe we can help it stand side-by-side with the modern technology that drives America today.
