This is a ClassBento virtual Live/Box class! From the comfort of your home, share an artisan experience with your friends, family or colleagues, or enjoy with like-minded others. Our Live/Box classes have been featured on The Guardian, TimeOut, GQ, Daily Mirror, The Metro, and more. Here's how it works:

  1. Book or Request your preferred time
  2. We'll deliver a ClassBento Box to you - this is a physical DIY craft kit containing the materials you'll need. Shipping is free, and you'll get your box delivered in time for your class. We ship nationwide.
  3. Enjoy the online class. After booking, you'll receive a link to a Zoom meeting. At the time of the class, use that link to join. During the class, you can easily ask questions and get immediate responses. Zoom is free and easy to use, on any device. You're in control of your privacy - you can mute yourself and hide your webcam if and when you prefer.

In this hands-on live online class, you will be crafting wood with steam. It's a really fun craft class as you learn a totally new skill and get to make an eye-catching lampshade.

You will receive a crafting kit with all the stuff you need to make your lampshade as well as a virtual class to guide you on how to make it.

Your friendly teacher, Charlie, will give you a complete overview of the steam-bending process. He will show you techniques include twisting, splitting, compression straps, jigs, and more.

Once you've got the basics down, you will then use these incredible new skills to make your own lampshade. The DIY kit includes locally sourced Ash Dieback for you to use. It's perfect if you want productive things to do at home as you have fun and make a cool furnishing for your house.

There will be a 30-minute break halfway through the online class.

Charlie Whinney Studio was set up by the artist in 2012. We pioneer new ways to work with steam bending to create beautiful low- carbon wood products to compete and take the place of other less eco-friendly materials where possible.

Charlie Whinney has created large-scale steam-bent art installations all over the world, as well as designing and making award-winning furniture and lighting.

WHAT IS STEAM BENDING?
Steam Bending is a term used to describe heating wood until it is pliable and may be bent into new shapes.

The workshop runs a year-round programme of woodwork courses from the forest-based studio in Cumbria including Beginners, 3 Day Pro and Makers Sessions & gift vouchers.

We also offer gift vouchers for our online live Lamp making workshops.
