Making Electric Lamps

£60.00

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 centered round the use of ceramics (or any other material) in making your lamp base.
