    Making Electric Lamps

    You’re a maker in your favoured medium – ceramics, wood, metal, glass or whatever – and you want to make electric lamps.

    This course will tell you everything you need to know beyond using your existing skills in making the lamp base – design considerations; bulbs, bulb holders and lampshades; wiring; testing; and all the standards and regulations that you need to conform to (covering UK and EU requirements).

    Note that although I am a potter, the course is not centred round the use of ceramics (or any other material) in making your lamp base.

    Model-Making Techniques Course Online

    A 5-day intensive, practical course covering model-making skills for theatre, film, animation or spatial design. Led by David Neat from his studio in Deptford, London. Next course dates in 2022: February 28–March 4, April 25–29, June 20-24.

    David’s emphasis in these workshops is on accessible techniques of building, modelling/shaping, surfacing and finishing relevant to artists, designers and makers in various disciplines. All is as live and as ‘actual’ as possible, with minimal recorded content. There is a focus on ‘realism’ in representation, geared more to theatre and film work, but the aim in keeping the course solidly materials-based is to provide just as much of relevance to model-making for other disciplines such as interior design. The cost per person will be £250, and the group size will be limited to 10.

    Contact davneat@aol.com for more information, including a more detailed daily schedule.

  • Using Colour
    Online Course

    Discovering Feltmaking Part 2

    This second course has been developed to show you how to use coloured wool creatively to enhance your feltmaking. Coloured wool in feltmaking can be compared to the artist’s palette. Just as a painter would choose the type of paint and method of application to achieve the effect required, then the feltmaker must make similar choices with wool.

    Using only 3 primary colours and black and white, you will learn how to expand your colour palette and add colour to the surface of your felt in a variety of ways. DF2 will also provide the second set of skills required for any student wishing to embark on CiFT.
