What you'll learn in this metal working class:

This course offers students a way to make a beautiful, functional product while learning valuable skills along the way. It is great for beginners who are interested in designing and fabricating products, or who just want to DIY their own nice lamp.

Students can select among a variety of templates, or rapidly create their own design within given constraints. The instructor will then guide students through the process of making the lamp, including cutting pipe, soldering connections, and electrical wiring.

You will learn how to use an angle grinder to cut various types of metals, how to solder piping, basic electrical wiring and basic shop techniques. At the end of the class, you will walk away with your own lamp.

Product Notes
Copper pipe is usually used in building construction and plumbing, but it also serves as a rich material for the design of furniture and products. In a lamp, it functions as the primary structure, a conduit for wiring, a mount for the bulb, and the aesthetic form.

The end result is a product that defies placement in any single style. It is both modern and traditional, vintage and sleek, industrial and chic. Finished with an Edison bulb, it will stand out as a timeless piece in whatever setting it’s placed. It’s the ultimate conversation piece—the one you made yourself.

Refund Policy

Cancellations with less than 48 hours notice are difficult to fill. By giving last minute notice or no notice at all, you prevent someone else from being able to schedule into that time slot.

I believe if you cancel with 48 hours notice there's no problem with refund. Also if it's a last minute emergency, please notify instructor as soon as possible, he/she may allow you to reschedule.

Loved spending time in the studio and creating some awesome lamps. Really appreciate that the guidance was thorough and helpful, but that the instructors also encouraged us to be creative and come up with our own versions of the lamp design.

The class was nice, and I was the only one in this particular class, which was fun to play around a bit more, but got out in a little over an hour. However, for the cost, the information learned and the product gained was a little less than what I had hoped. The instructor was very nice, though.

Really cool studio and equipment. The reason 3 stars is because you think you're going in to learn a skill. But in reality you're glueing the copper together so you aren't learning welding and the instructor installs the electrical hardware. So you don't actually learn anything.

We enjoyed the class. Our only complaint was the picture of the lamp on the website was much nicer than the lamp we made . The course horse website shows a copper cage on the lamp which gives it a very finished look. When we asked the teacher why ours was different he said that the one in the photo was too complicated. He mentioned he had asked course horse to update the photo. In the past but they never did. This seemed a little deceiving.
