    Build-a-Lamp Workshop with Chicago Women in Trades

    Saturday, Oct 20, 2018 1:00 - 3:30 PM @ Chicago Women in Trades
    This event is over! Please check the 2021 schedule.
    LAB - Labs bring together small groups for an exclusive, first-hand look into what happens behind the scenes at some of the most innovative companies, community leaders and institutions around Chicago.

    Learn to construct a lamp from scratch in this super-tactile Lab that will be fun for electrical newbies and experienced home-improvement experts alike. Pipe fitters, plumbers, carpenters and electricians from Chicago Women in Trades—which works to increase women’s participation in skilled, well-paying professions that are traditionally dominated by men—will give you hands-on instruction on building your own lamp. Meanwhile, you’ll hear from local tradeswomen about how you can support women in trade work and be given your own “toolbox” that will help you advocate for more gender equality in your profession, no matter what it is.

    Must be 16 or older and provide valid ID. No jewelry preferred, closed toe shoes required. Entrance is located in the back of the building with the green and yellow staircase/ramp.
