In this beginner lamp making class, I'm going to demystify working with electricity and teach you how to make your own custom lamps!
You'll learn about basic lamp parts and how to wire them together safely. Then I'll show you how to turn found, or easily purchased, items into stylish lamp bases and shades. Making great lighting doesn't have to be expensive or a workshop challenge. You don't have to have any prior electrical experience – just a few hand tools and a desire to light up your life in your own unique way!
As you go through the lessons, you’ll receive one-on-one help from me if you need it and have the opportunity to share photos of your creations with the class community.
In this class I'll also be covering best practices for choosing lamp shades and selling your homemade lamps.
Once you’ve completed the lessons, you'll have all the skills, tools, and confidence necessary to design and build almost any kind of standard socket lamp!
