WOOD SUMMER SESSION 1
MAY 28–June 2, 2023

Ellie Richards
The Sculptural Lamp

Let’s spend time exploring the powerful connection between light and form! This workshop will center on the interplay between the physical qualities of wood and light. Expand your knowledge of woodworking and sculpture and further your creative path as we cover lamp-construction techniques and the fundamentals of design. Technical information will include machine tool use, carving, and basic lamp wiring. Come as an total beginner or an advanced woodworker and use the sculptural lamp to light up new ways of making. All levels. 

Penland resident artist; teaching: Haystack (ME), Yestermorrow Design/Build School (VT); exhibitions: Mint Museum (NC), Center for Craft (NC), SOFA Chicago.
