Sign Up here!

A lamp could be much more than just a passive item collecting dust on your desk, it could have legs, eyes, body, character and personality. A lamp can look like a toy, an insect or animal. We can bring it to life through our imagination, give it a personality and show it on video.

This Woodworking class will tech you how to design and make your own desk lamp.
You will learn various woodworking tools and techniques to obtain a good finish and a beautiful product. You'll have time to design your own version - no two lamps are the same.
You will also need to wire the electrical connections. All work is supervised and guided.

This class is aimed at people who are relatively new to woodworking.
It's class is suitable for adults and youngsters (12+) alike.
We will take about 4 hours to complete and you'll bring your finished lamp home.
As a bonus, there will be a short demonstration on stop-motion videography.
