Light It Up: Found Object Lamp Workshop

Are you a DIY addict? Garage sale regular? Flea market troller?  Found objects can be a great and inexpensive way to making one-of-a-kind pieces of functional art.  Lauren, a local artist at Folklaur Studio, will demonstrate how she takes what other people don't want and makes in into all kinds of functional lighting pieces with personality.

This workshop will go through the basics of lamp making, procedures, tools and parts, and how to transform your favorite hunks of junk into unique light fixtures. The demonstration will detail a small lamp made from the woodpile and pieces from the hardware store. Kits will be available for a nominal fee ($15) so attendees can make their own version right at the workshop. Those interested in purchasing a kit should preregister to ensure that the right amount of kits will be available. Please also bring along a small flathead screwdriver and needle nose pliers. 

Preregister by April 21 by emailing info@tahoemill.com to let us know you'd like to join the workshop!
