Light Up: Lamp Design and Assembly
April 24, May 8, and May 22, 2-4 pm EST
A 3 part workshop (online) about lighting design and assembly with @awaysaway. Learn about lighting design history, how to make lighting bases, and how to assemble a lamp using a basic lamp kit. Participants will also receive enlightening information, including pdfs and resources to design their own lamp.
Week 1 (April 24): Students will get a tour of lighting, history, and design and will receive lots of info and pdfs to help them get started on their own designs.
Week 2 (May 8): The instructor will demonstrate how to assemble a lamp and go over safety precautions and troubleshooting.
Week 3 (May 22): The instructor will demonstrate how to DIY a lampshade and participants will have time to share their finished lamps with each other.
*Local participants can fire their lamps at Gasworks at a member/student rate (a hot opportunity to try out our gas kiln).
We hope you'll join this workshop and add some warmth and light to your space.
