Neon artist Richard William Wheater helps Radio Four's John Wilson make a neon for the first Front Row artwork. Wheater talks us through the process of making neon artwork at Neon Workshops in Wakefield, the only place in the country you can learn how to make neons. They are accompanied by graphic designer Peter Saville and the Junior Royal Northern College Brass Quintet and the BBC North Staff Choir to switch on the artwork.
Wheater's unique neon installation I'm Electric, You're Electric is currently at Other Criteria's Hinde Street shop. To view the work online, click here.
