Learn the fundamentals of soldering by designing and building a one-of-a-kind copper pipe lamp
Our three hour Copper Lamp workshop gives you the tools, materials, and inspiration to craft an actual working lamp and light up your life with a funky awesome Edison bulb. If you want visitors to your home to know you made this lamp with your own two hands, you are going to have to find a way to work it into conversation organically, because it isn’t self evident.
This is your new identity. You are the cool friend that makes their own lamps!
Many in the Craftsman Ave community consider the Copper Lamp workshop to be the “gateway” into maker life. Be warned: You are likely to catch the maker fever, and the only cure is MORE WORKSHOPS!
Crafting a Copper Lamp is a delicious taste of dopamine rush from creating with fire.
Yes! Not only will you play with shiny copper pipes and manipulate them into the design of your choice (this is where a childhood spent among building sets will pay dividends), you will also control the power of fire as you solder together the copper joints of your creation.
This is a “beginner” level workshop, meaning that no knowledge of copper pipe fitting and soldering is required, but the sky is the limit for your creative design!
Skill Level : Beginner — no previous experience is required.
Tools and techniques : You’ll use some simple hand tools to cut copper pipe. We’ll then teach you the art of soldering, using a propane torch to connect the pieces of your lamp.
Length: 3 hours, give or take thirty minutes.
Class size: 4 – 6 people.
