Class meets April 12 and April 13,  In Studio

Tuition: $175 (Log in for membership discount prices)

Description: In this class we will build a lamp, either with LED lights or traditional bulbs. We will be using unconventional stock, such as branches, round stock, and bamboo. We will be using different types of papers to compose the shade of the lamp, from shoji paper to mulberry paper. This course is broken up into two sessions, three hours each. This class is more about creativity and unique supplies, rather than traditional linear woodworking.

This class is specifically designed to accommodate and welcome people with a range of neurodiversities including ASD, ADHD, and other types of thinking across the spectrum. The instructor himself is neurodivergent, and wishes to create a communally supportive class for his students. The Molesky Series is also designed to accommodate and welcome individuals with physical disabilities, and individuals seeking a small, judgment-free learning environment. Students may contact the instructor beforehand to discuss ways to best facilitate their learning experience.


-Full and partial scholarships are available for this course, and we encourage interested persons to reach out to the office at 

-The first class of this workshop will be upstairs in our Painting Studio, and the second class will be downstairs in our woodworking studio. There will be directions on the monitor when you enter the building, and there is an elevator available if needed.

About the instructor: Palo Coleman grew up in Northern California where he spent a lot of time in the woods, taught himself building skills and developed an interest in small-scale living. Now living with his wife and family in Cambridge, he continues to experiment in myriad woodworking techniques and is a tiny-house builder. Past projects include a living playground in Waitsfield, Vermont’s elementary school; making a vertical garden system; constructing medieval games for the Fuller Craft Museum; and developing a portable studio with Japanese-wood siding. He has an obsession with how things work and are put together, and he likes to bring that obsession into classroom and woodworking shop.
