This June, maker Laura Sissoko of Atlantic Fine Woods invited us into her studio to teach us how to make Fairy Lamps with reclaimed wood.
The class was taught in two parts, one where we learned how to finish the wood pieces, and then when we learned how to wire the lamp. In the class, makers routed out holes to hold the lighting hardware and learned how to finish the wood with sanding and linseed oil. Once this part was finished, Laura taught students how to attach the glass globes and wire the lights.
Thank you so much to Laura for teaching this workshop! If you would like to attend another workshop with her, she will be teaching a workshop creating galaxy pendants using reclaimed wood with maker Sara Beach this September.
