Event description

Description

Want to reuse those light fixtures but aren't sure if they're safe? Light fixtures often come with frayed, cracked, and/or missing wiring which may present an unsafe or inoperable installation. In this hands-on how-to workshop you will learn how to replace damaged or missing wiring for a safe, functional installation.

Overview

Bring your own fixture or shop ERW for a vintage light fixture (50% off with workshop registration)

Learn how to disassemble, rewire and reassemble your fixture

Learn what parts may be required to install your fixture

Learn how to mount your fixture to a wall or ceiling junction box

Learn how to solder if needed


Prior to the workshop please email a photo of your fixture to nancy@evanstonrebuildingwarehouse.org and include:

  • will the new wiring be visible after installation?
  • any other known issues with your fixture like a missing or broken part

All materials are included in the class fee.

Please read the workshop policies below!
