I designed this small lamp for my summer camp students who built the 8 watt stereo amplifier. Before they attempted to solder all the components for the amp i let them solder the switch and light fitting. They had no idea i had made these lamps for them so i hope they enjoy the lovely warm glow. The sizes of popsicle sticks used are 11.5 cm and 6 cm. The base was a 5mm thick piece of board that i had lying around, inside the lamp are matchsticks which stop the lamp from falling over the base. The bulb is 7 watt and produces a lovely warm light.

This lamp was designed for my students, I thought I would give them an electrical project to build. It truly is very simple with just a few popsicle sticks and a piece of paper. Most of the work was making the electrical cable with a switch. The cube lamp in the pictures is my own personal version, the students made a normal flat standing cube.

This craft came about because one of my students made a balloon paper măché shade in an art class. She made it so well I thought I would design a lamp stand for her, and this is what I came up with. We both made a lamp stand from popsicle sticks and I made the electrical fittings for a 15W bulb. When she switched it on she was amazed at her work. The pictures here are my lamp shade I made, I painted it yellow and red for a lovely warm glow. My wife did a waldorf colour scheme.
