The Works Workshop Series- DIY Bottle Lamp

Ever wanted to learn how to create your own custom bottle lamp? Sit down and chat with the pro's for one lazy Sunday afternoon and learn how to assemble your own quirky light piece (RRP $110). You'll walk away with a new skillset and an excellent gift or fine addition to the home! Materials are supplied as well as some nibbles to keep you going throughout the afternoon. No experience necessary!

​Your lovely tutor for the afternoon will be Juan from the amazing industrial design label Mas Des Trefles and Dan from Mountain Boat Design. Juan is a stall holder in The Works Glebe, a qualified electrician, steampunk enthusiast and bespoke lighting afficianado. Dan is an employee of The Works Glebe and also a skilled graphic designer with a passion for upcycling and repurposing vintage finds.

The workshop will begin with a half hour introduction and overview on creating your own bespoke electrical items safely and skillfully.

You will then be split into two groups, one working with Juan to prepare the bottle and install the electrical components and the other working with Dan to recover the lampshade with a fabric of your choice.

Once participants have completed both components there'll be time for a photoshoot, final Q&A and a refreshing ale.

Expect a fun afternoon learning new skills, meeting new people and walking away with your own custom made lamp!
