Light Me Up

Make and glaze a table lamp and a lampshade in this 6 week course.
You will learn coil and slab techniques as well as glazing, slip and carving techniques to make a one of a kind lamp base.
To complete the effect in week 5 we will be making lampshades to match your lamp bases, either from scratch or by up-cycling a lampshade you already own.
Price includes tuition, materials and firing.
Lampshade & fitting costs not included*


Two Days available:-
Tuesdays 7pm - 9pm on 24th & 31st Jan, 7th, 21st & 28th Feb, 7th March.
or
Wednesdays 10.30am - 12.30pm on 25th Jan, 1st, 8th & 22nd Feb, 1st & 8th March.


£145.00 clay work only, supply own lamp fitting and shade.
£180.00 with lampshade & light kit* fabric not included.

*We believe in recycling as much as possible, therefore we recommend that where possible you use the fittings from an old ceramic lamp, which can be picked up from many charity shops for less than £5, making this a more affordable and environmentally friendly way of working, however we will also offer lamp kits for those who wish to start from scratch.

You are also welcome to source your own kits.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Light me up! - Lamp workshops are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
