Lamp it up! - light up your life with recycling.

Hosted by Cultiver stockist Lamp it up! here's another great workshop at Cultiver where you can learn how to turn household waste into a beautiful lamp.

To give you some ideas of what these talented lads can help you create here's some images from the recent Lamp it up! workshops in Melbourne Town:

Lamp it up! will be at Cultiver on Wednesday October 5th.

Here's everything you need to know:

Time: 10:00 - 3:00 (with a lunch break - B.Y.O. or visit one of the lovely local cafes')

What to bring: you're welcome to bring along any items from home you think you could recycle to make your lamp. This is limited only by your imagination but could include wooden bowls, plastic mixing bowls and food containers, napkin rings, door knobs, kids toys, glass lamp shades...

What you'll be doing: The Lamp it up! lads will help you sift through your own collection of materials to find suitable items for a lamp, then you'll all take a stroll around the Top of Town op shops to look for more materials (any items you find must be paid for by yourself). Once back at Cultiver they'll help you design and build your own unique lamp.

Supplied: all lamp components such as cord, fittings etc, tools to build lamps

Cost: $40 per adult, $10 for each accompanied child (aged 8 and up, limit of two children per adult participant), plus you'll need extra cash to purchase any component materials at the local op shops.

Booking: all bookings can be made via Cultiver - drop in to 2/126 Brisbane St. Ipswich, call us 0424 303 759 or email
