Make a lamp from repurposed object

23 February 2019 - 10:00am at The Coach House

Welcome to Brighton based Lost and Foundry Lighting. I’m Maxine and I’ve been making lighting for 10 years and my lights can be found in cocktail bars in Soho, a barbershop in Brighton, a deli in Bath, a tequila bar in Dublin and have appeared on 60 Minute Makeover as a guest artist and in many interiors magazines. I work with interior designers and stylists, hotel refurbishers, independent shop owners as well as selling direct to people looking for unique lighting. On the day we will be assisted by my assistant Clare. Let me share my passion for creative lighting with you!

What we’ll do
This four hour workshop will be separated into four parts. HJj During the first 45 minutes we will take time to look at our objects and establish the steps needed in order to convert them into a light. We will also choose the type of lamp holders and cables that would complement your object. These decisions will take place through one-to-one chatting with the Lost and Foundry designers and also as a group conversation as we take inspiration from each other. The second part of the workshop will last approximately 90 minutes where we customise our object and prepare it for wiring. This will include attaching components to each other such as vintage tins to ceramic animals, drilling holes in objects and otherwise customising in order to allow electrical equipment to be housed within. There will then be a 15 minute break where drinks and snacks will be provided. The third part of the workshop will last approximately 60 minutes where as a group we wire our objects ready for testing.The Lost and Foundry designers will be demonstrating how to do this as well as doing one-to-one checks to see that this has been done correctly and safely. The final 40 mins will be Pat testing your lamp
