d*s diy lighting event with lindsey adelman!


I’ve been anxiously awaiting this event for weeks now and am thrilled to announce a little DIY get-together we’re having this week in Brooklyn as part of Design Downtown, an event series at the Nightwood pop-up shop! This Wednesday, October 6th, from 7–9pm, Brooklyn-based lighting designer Lindsey Adelman will join Amy and me for a DIY lighting workshop. Lindsey will teach us how to make a cage lighting fixture using string, yarn, rope and rattan, followed by a re-wiring demonstration with BuildItGreen! If you’ve ever wanted to try your hand at re-wiring a light or making your own cage light for your home, this event is for you. Because this is a hands-on workshop, spaces are limited so Lindsey can have time to check in on everyone personally. If you want to join us this Wednesday evening (I hope you do, we’re going to have a great time!) please RSVP via email right here (shanice at beatschermerhorn dot com) to reserve your spot. Because we’re providing all the supplies, the cost is $25 per person, but you’ll leave with your very own handmade lamp at the end of the evening. So come join Lindsey, Amy and me this Wednesday from 7-9pm! Hope to see you there. xo, grace

*Lindsey is starting a fantastic new monthly series called “You Make.” Starting October 15th, Lindsey will share fun DIY projects on her site. Stay tuned for the launch soon!

    Wish I could be there – would love to have more house things that are handmade (and my NYC apartment doesn’t have the room for all the great furniture projects on d*s) but will be in class at FIT. Dang – have fun!

      hi lauren

      the event space is only available on week nights, sorry! also, we’ve found we normally get better turn outs on work nights than on weekends, oddly.
