Make a hip neon sign for your home in this two-day course at Brooklyn Glass. You’ll start out by bending and shaping neon tubes, then learn to wire and hang the unit with the help of an expert instructor. Once you’ve finished your masterpiece, the studio will have it pumped full of neon or argon glass (depending on what color you prefer). The best part of your new sign is the fact that you can tell all your visitors about making it with your own two hands. $475
In a city of 8.5 million people, there are bound to be a few weirdos—something New Yorkers take as a point of pride. So why not learn something from them? You can master some truly unique skills in these unusual classes in NYC. There’s no shortage of painting classes, dance classes and cooking classes in NYC, but we've all been there and done that. Instead, opt for something less popular, like an introductory tarot class taught by an urban shaman, an acrobatic games course at a circus theater or a neon sign workshop at a glassblowing facility.
