This is a class in panel lamp construction, and it will focus primarily on the specifics of lamp assembly. Depending on design selected, extensive copper foiling may be required.
Prior to the first class meeting, the student must come in to the Studio and select pattern and glass. Due to limited time constraints, the pattern must be approved by the instructor.
Also prior to the first class meeting, the student is encouraged to have at least one panel -- and preferably all -- completely cut out.
There will be homework for each session; students will have access to all shop tools and equipment throughout the duration of the classes, during normal shop hours. Additional shop time can be arranged at a cost of $15 per studio hour.
Students will receive a more specific hand-out upon enrollment.
Students receive a 10% discount on all shop purchases during the course. Please note, however, this discount cannot be applied to any items on consignment.
