Learn the ins and outs of lighting and electricity, and walk away with a new light fixture by renowned designer Brendan Ravenhill. In this Lighting 101 class, Brendan will teach you how to wire and assemble a brass pendant, including switches, plug, and pendant. Through this hands-on approach, you'll not only become familiar with the best wiring practices but also learn how to use standard components to make your own design at home. Each student will leave with a finished new brass pendant light.
"Brendan and Natalie are fantastic teachers! Lively, energetic, fun, great vibe."
"I now have my own pendant. I can't wait to make all the light in my house."
"What other workshops teach you to make your own lamp? Poketo workshops are my favorite!"
"We learned how to wire and create light. Creative energy = Food. High on light!"
