Wooden Lampmaking with Veneer and Fiberglass with Jamie Herman Pocosin Arts

Students will learn how to rein­force wood veneer with fiber­glass to make rigid sheets for use in lamp­mak­ing. These sheets will allow enough light through to give off a warm glow while high­light­ing the natural beauty of the wood’s grain.

Students will learn how to rein­force wood veneer with fiber­glass to make rigid sheets for use in lamp­mak­ing. These sheets will allow enough light through to give off a warm glow while high­light­ing the natural beauty of the wood’s grain. This tech­nique can be used to make all sorts of lamp designs, but I will demon­strate how to make a simple lamp from start to finish. The class will be mostly demo-based because there is glue that needs a long time to set.

*The class is appro­pri­ate for those with very little fine wood­work­ing experience/​knowledge. There are a few cuts that need to be made with a circu­lar saw/​jigsaw or similar tool. Access to a table saw makes things much easier and much more accu­rate, but is not required. Phys­i­cal strength is not impor­tant, other than some hand strength to turn clamps.
