What you'll learn in this metal working class:

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's the limit for your creative design!

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: About 3 hours, give or take 30 minutes.

I went to the build a copper lamp class and I have to say it was pretty awesome. You do not need any experience as the instructor went over each step and was very attentive to those who had questions or needed extra guidance. I was rather proud of myself at the end result and would definitely do another class.

This was an incredibly fun class and a great date night activity. Our instructors were fun, helpful, and hands-on. The project was easy to learn but involved a number of skills that were new and interesting. I would highly recommend this course and other courses at this venue.

My boyfriend loves copper bulbs so I decided to take him to this class for our stay in NYC. The class was amazing! Our instructor gave us beer, wine, or a beverage of our choice, we got to choose the music during our building, and it was a great and comfortable atmosphere from the start. I enjoyed being given the freedom to select my own creative bulb idea and have as much time as possible to talk, joke, and build. Now my copper bulb is on my nightstand in Florida. Anybody that comes to NYC should do this class!! It’s super worth it, and the staff was very friendly.
