What you'll do
This four hour workshop will be separated into four parts. During the first bit, we will take time to look at our objects and establish the steps needed in order to convert them into a light. We will also choose the type of lamp holders and cables that would complement your object. These decisions will take place through one-to-one chatting with the Lost and Foundry designers and also as a group conversation if we have more than one participant as we take inspiration from each other. The second part of the workshop will be where we customise our object and prepare it for wiring. This will include attaching components, drilling holes in objects and otherwise customising in order to allow electrical equipment to be housed within. There will then be a little break where drinks and snacks will be provided. The third part of the workshop will be when we wire our objects ready for testing.The Lost and Foundry designers will be demonstrating how to do this as well as doing one-to-one checks to see that this has been done correctly and safely. The final moments we will be PAT testing your lamp!

Where you'll be
This workshop will take place on my London narrowboat! I am what’s called a constant cruiser on the London waterways so I move every two weeks. Because of this I can’t tell you where the boat will be until closer to your workshop date but rest assured you will be able to find us with ease on the London Underground or Overground.
